Fables: Das Pferd und der Esel

Another ass/arse.

Re translating 'der Esel' as 'the ass': There is a discussion of the non-equus asinus ass on ABC Radio National's Lingua Franca with Crikey's language blogger, Piers Kelly. Hope one or more of these links work. The blog: http://blogs.crikey.com.au/fullysic/2010/05/06/ass-vs-arse/ Lingua Franca: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/linguafranca/2012-08-25/4220766 And an ass's arse, for good measure: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/linguafranca/arse-or-ass3f/4220862
