. . . and I think he should rescue one.
In this clip from his show The Long Way Down, Ewan expresses his appreciation for the donkeys of the African continent. In the episode from which it was extracted, he goes on to say that he actually is quite interested in owning a donkey, and that he likes them, and that he'll likely seek one in the UK as shipping from Africa would be unrealistic.
So, did Ewan ever get his donkey? I don't know! You don't hear about it, and if he didn't then it's about time he opened his capacious wallet and comfortable home to a hoofbeast in need. I'm going to write his agent and say so. (Ewan isn't one of those people you can just write to directly, unfortunately, even if you are a mule of international celebrity.)
