    I think the idea that Donkey not telling makes him a bad person is a bit messed up, MP. That is like a rape victim not talking to the police and trying to live with what happened. Donkey isn't running Pleasure Island the same way a rape victim isn't raping people. Blame the perp not the survivor.

    in fairytails dragons are known for their intelligence and wisdom, but for emotions? hmm, well? but in HTTYD we don't see them gathering gold or reading books. what if... they have evolutionary split up from other reptiles and that is just some sort of unintentional mimicry? like this form is the best way to survive in this environment. well... counting they have split up from most of reptiles allows us to theorize they have emotional part of brain! just they look similar, they aren't even cold-blooded if we look at them. they can live almost anywhere at anytime of a day. they are warm-blooded. guess i got somewhere far from the main thing...

    It's good, but the whole donkey breed thing doesn't make sense. He's taking "evidence" from a Disney movie, not DreamWorks, so unless the og Bothers Grimm Pinocchio story describes the donkeys being brown and gray, then it's kinda irrelevant. Idk if this was because Mat needed some more proof but didn't really have any, or if people just forget that DISNEY IS NOT DREAMWORKS. Either way I think its definitely possible that donkey is one of the Pleasure Island boys, and it was a really good theory.
