    Is this a joke? It must be there cannot really be a National Mini Donkey Association because if there is it's time and money completely wasted.

    Is this real or a joke as well?

    And if it is real, I have but one thing to say to you, Mr. Hierman.

    Send an email so we don't ridicule you next time. I say next time because, quite frankly, people are going to ridicule you for this NOW.

    Yes, there is a National Mini Donkey Association. Just because you're not interested in Miniature Donkeys doesn't mean other people out there can't be.


    That being said, this cease and desist letter is a nice attempt at an April fools joke Razz Looks very genuine!

    Sorry I have offended you, I see you love the Mini Ass Association. I prefer the Big Ass Association.

    Well... After a little research http://www.nmdaasset.com is a real website and GR does link to it.

    Also, the address checks out.

    I donno... Duke?

    Edit: Also, Links, I highly doubt a Lawyer cares about being ridiculed....

    In case you missed it, the joke (which was weak) was the wide open Covert Ops access.

    This... is just odd.
