Subject: Re: [CI] Jersey version of Donkipedia

Excuse me for just jumping into this naming question.
The name of Donkeybeansopedia, just keeps coming to me. I'm sure there
are many versions of that name. I was told when on the ferry to
Guernsey that Guernsey was the Donkeys and Jersey was the Beans. I
had not heard of the crapod name until in these emails and I was
surprised no one had thought of the Beans. Excuse me if Jersey folks
don't like being called Beans, but Guernsey folks have to accept the
name of Donkeys. My ancestors come from both places so I am blessed
with being a Donkeys and Beans anyway.
Please excuse if I have inadvertently insulted someone, but there must
be a decent combination name out there. CIpedia sounded quite boring
