Synopses & Reviews
Even frustrated grammarians will giggle at the whoandrsquo;s-on-first routine that begins with a donkeyandrsquo;s excited announcement, andldquo;I yam a donkey!andrdquo; Unfortunately the donkeyandrsquo;s audience happens to be a yam, and one who is particular about sloppy pronunciation and poor grammar. An escalating series of misunderstandings leaves the yam furious and the clueless donkey bewildered by the yamandrsquo;s growing (and amusing) frustration. The yam finally gets his point across, but regrettably, heandrsquo;s made the situation a little bit too clear . . . and the story ends with a dark and outrageously funny twist.
Confusion abounds when aand#160;poorly spoken donkeyand#160;says to aand#160;grammarian yam,and#160;"I Yam a Donkey!"
