Exploding donkey is a donkey used to deliver bombs. After the 1982 invasion of Lebanon by Israel, Shiite militants turned to suicide attacks to drive out the Israeli army. On one occasion, a mule was used as a bomb carrier instead. Other times, bombers were intercepted with explosives hidden on themselves while they were riding donkeys. In 2004, during the Iraq War, a donkey in Ramadi, Iraq was loaded with explosives and set off towards a US-run checkpoint. It exploded before it was able to injure or kill anyone but itself.

The figure is the mascot of Monday Fast Food, a quick service restaurant in Shanghai.
