Laughing Jackass Statue

It's a mule, not a jackass, and his name is Lucky.

[Devin House, 11/18/2023]

The statue's sponsor calls it a mule, but the lip-prints on its posterior and the initials on its pedestal, "LMAO," show that it's an ass.

It is in front of a restaurant that looks an awful lot like a bar, which I find ironic after reading the story. Glad this guy stuck it to 'em so that we could come enjoy this!

The Jackass is complete, but the job site is still under construction. There is a parking lot, so you do have access to it.
