(Bible: Numbers 22:28-30) And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and the ass said unto Balaam: “What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?” … Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day?” …
Pardon us, but we’d like to interrupt this Bible reading to issue a correction. We are not totally convinced that this Biblical account of Balaam’s ass talking is 100% accurate. We’d like to point out that at the time and place this historical event was recorded the donkey would not have been talking to Balaam in King James English but instead would have spoken in a dialect of ancient Hebrew.
We’d also like to point out that in this picture of Mr Ed Surfing, the wording on the side of his surfboard says it is a custom Thomas Black Hawaiian Cigar board when in fact it is actually a Kahuna Hot Curl model.
Also we’d like to note that in this picture of Mr. Ed playing Chess, the cufflinks that his opponent is wearing are not official Association of Architects issue but appear to be poor imitations.
One final correction: in this picture of Mr. Ed supposedly making the first heavier than air airplane flight, the time on his ankle watch clearly indicates that this is instead a picture of one of the flights he made later that day.
