Get a mule and a rope...good idea. Spring Shame from durance vile. Let's see: make a double bight in the rope with extra length in the running end. Wrap the running end around the doubled rope, working towards the standing end. When you reach the top bight, put the running end through the bight and pull the downwards on the standing end side of the loop to tighten it around the running end.

Set Shame on the back of the mule and fasten the standing end to a sturdy tree branch about 15 feet up and the loop in the running end around Sham's neck. Tighten the loop under Shame's left ear and give the hind end of the mule a good slap with your hat.

"Where's Shame?"
"Oh, just hangin' around."
