I. Shit. You. Not.

Ah, Islam:

GAZA City zookeepers have found a creative way of drawing crowds to their dilapidated zoo - by painting their donkeys.

he Marah Land Zoo's only two zebras died of hunger earlier this year when they were neglected during the Israel-Hamas war.

The popular animals were too expensive to replace, so the keepers decided to design a pair of donkeys with black and white patterns instead.

Ahmad Barghouti says a professional painter used French-manufactured hair coloring to make the donkeys look like zebras.

Hasan Yaseen said Thursday since his three children have never seen a real zebra, they enjoy the Gaza version.

Aside from the two "zebras", the zoo also flaunts an aging tigress, two monkeys and a selection of birds, rabbits and cats.

What? No Joooos or Apes?

At least the donkeys got a French makeover, I suppose.
