Asinine

Just learnt this new word. It’s a word I’ve heard of before  but never really knew what it meant, so I went to have a look: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/asinine

The first one was: Failing to exercise intelligence or judgement; ridiculously below average rationality.

The second one was interesting: Of, pertaining to, or characteristic of donkeys.

We are humans, not asses. We do not have to behave like asses, and we certainly don’t have to behave like them! Let’s leave the donkeys be donkeys, we’ll let them be asinine, because that’s their nature, and it shouldn’t be ours, lol.

Though I think donkeys will only be asinine in the second sense, since their average intelligence is intelligent for donkeys. For us it would be asinine (in the first sense).
