donkeys years

Here is my best explanation:

'a long time' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'eeyore's age?' is the wordplay.
'eeyore's' becomes 'donkeys' (eeyore is the donkey from winnie the pooh).
'age?' becomes 'years' ('years' can be a synonym of 'age').
'donkeys'+'years'='DONKEYS YEARS'

'finding' is the link.
