No longer a mystery. Zebras are black with white stripes.
And also learnt that polar bears are black with transparent fur that makes them appear white. (:

Zebras are black with white stripes and polar bears are black with transparent fur? I would not be surprised if penguins have been actually wearing tuxedos the whole time. I've always suspected that.


a wise man once told me a story... a zebra asked God if he was white with black stripes, or black with white stripes. God replied saying, you are what you are. depressed the zebra couldn't understand what God was trying to say. Soo he told his friend of his dillema and his friend said cheerfully "you're white with black stripes" when the zebra asked Why his friend simply said "if you were black with white stripes God would've said, you is what you is".... I'll show myself out *shuts door*


#4 OP's FATHER was the one who asked if the zebra was an African horse. If OP was playing with toys with his father that meant he had to be pretty young. The FML essence here is that a child still interested in toy animals could identify a zebra whereas his father could not.


It's the secret love child of the Lone Ranger's horse Silver and Black Beauty. It was a different time so they had to keep it a secret. Thank God for horses like Dr. Mare-tin Luther King Jr. and Neigh-braham Lincoln who have helped the battle for civil rights.

30 - im confused by your post and #9s downvotes, they said they dont want the kid to be as smart as the father, which can be interprited as they want them to be SMARTER...

I dont see this reflecting the father's intelligence at all. Is the child old enough to know zebra? If they are only starting their vocabulary, please consider the following substitutes:

Zebra,pony, donkey -> horse

Panther, tiger - > big cat

Battleship, submarine -> boat

"hopefully your son won't be as smart as father". This literally means son's intelligence < father's. it cannot be interpreted in your way.
"What is this? some kind of african horse?". since OP posted this, she must know the tone of voice the husband used. since this is an fml, he probably genuinely didn't know about the zebra, as hard as it is to believe.

51 (and 30) - so if i say to you, "hopefully your son wont be as smart as his father, i want you to be smarter" that doesnt make sense to you?

now cut off the last part of the sentence i added explaining the thought.

Well, there was the story about a girl that for whatever reason had a pet zebra and rode it like a pony. It jumped and everything... so he's definitely way off, but he's kind of, sort of onto something.
