ASSES
[ Also see Animals ]

He shall be buried with the burial of an ass, drawn and cast forth beyond the gates of Jerusalem.
      - Bible, Jeremiah (ch. XXII, v. 19)

John Trott was desired by two witty peers
  To tell them the reason why asses had ears.
    "An't please you," quoth John, "I'm not given to letters;
      Nor dare I pretend to know more than my betters:
        Howe'er, from this time I shall ne'er see your graces,
          As I hope to be saved! without thinking on asses."
      - Oliver Goldsmith, The Clown's Reply
