Danny Donkey

A typical Danny Donkey appearance
It is common for works of fictions to have stories with the story. Pearls Before Swine has several. However, we will focus on Danny Donkey.
Danny Donkey is a series of children's books written by Rat. These books tend to be of poor quality. In the strip Danny appears, Goat (and sometimes others) often complains about the books. However, Pig (in his naivety) ends up loving the stories. A stuff animal Danny came to life and might (it's implied) have robbed a liquor store.
Most of the stories are about Danny having a problem (usually involving others) and doing something about it. However, Danny ends up doing something darkly comedic selfish such as beating people to make them ugly in order to improve his self-esteem or bricking people in their houses so he doesn't have to deal with them. As such, the morals tend to be things like "If you can't make yourself better, make those around you worse." or "Deceased neighbors... make good neighbors."
