| Another John Waters Classic!!
There is a new game in town - donkey baseball! This is the same game as regular baseball but you must ride around the bases on a donkey. The fielders must also ride on donkeys, but are permitted to get off only to retrieve the baseball when it is hit.

OK I have no idea who John Waters is, but this mockumentary is pretty funny despite the stupid premise. Saw this on TCM in between movies (it's only about 9 minutes long). A funny spoof of baseball and old news reels (or what I imagine they were like).

The title screen credits this as an "MGM Oddity" so maybe there are more in this series, though I have not seen or heard of any others.

I have no idea how you would get to see this though, unless you catch it on TCM or find it as an extra on a DVD.
