Think of a Magazine and It Probably Exists
Donkey Talk is a tri-monthly periodical or, as its back cover says, “a comprehensive ‘assyclopedia’ containing everything you would ever want or need to know about donkey ownership.” This is where you go if you want to find out how to keep that womanizing stud of a jack from mounting, biting, or “worrying the foo” out of the jennies. Tips on antibiotic resistance follow emergency preparedness checklists and tender reflections of livestock farm life. The magazine just published its 150th issue.
Nikkitha Bakshani’s piece about niche magazines and the people who run them is pretty incredible. I was going to lead this post with the magazine Girls and Corpses, which is a magazine for necrophiliacs where women pose with corpses (um, “one real corpse in every issue”), but couldn’t bring myself to do it. It exists!
