    Hi, this is what I found:

    http://www.inthe80s.com/rhymes.shtml:

    Inky Pinky Ponky,
    Daddy bought a donkey.
    Donkey died, daddy cried.
    Inky Pinky Ponky!

    Seems like it's just a silly catchphrase for the children's rhyme.

    Greetings,

    Charliedeut

    I have just provided an answer to that in your other "meaning" post

    Greetings,

    PS: Maybe it's not the best idea to duplicate posts like that!

    Re: inky pinky

    I have merged your posts.

    1. Please post a question only once.

    2. Please give you threads titles that tell us seomthing, like the word or phrase you are looking for, so you don't have 19 threads all entitled "meaning."

    3. For the love of all that's holy, if you have a word or phrase that you can't find in a dictionary, then give us the CONTEXT in which you've seen it, because if' it's not common enough for you to find it ,on your own, we'll need to know how you saw it being used!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
