Answer: Donkey-mounted Wi-Fi

Kfar Kedem, a religious theme park in Galilee that re-enacts historical events, is now strapping up donkeys' derrieres with Wi-Fi. Five of the park's 30 asses are equipped with wireless Internet routers. The idea is to provide eager tourists with the ability to "share" their experience in real time via the many social networks they're on, so their friends can "like" or retweet their "pins" or just get new followers. It's yet to be determined if these donkeys will be more famous than Shrek's affable but chatty compadre.
