Who knew camels were adorable and hilarious? Here we have a fantastic photo essay of a baby camel trying to kill a Tupperware. Really, click this one. It’s great. (BTW, “cushing” means lying down, and the reason the owner hasn’t ridden the camel yet is because his joints are too soft to safely bear extra weight. But she sits on him while he’s cushing to socialize and gentle him).
Also, did you know camels make a really unpleasant and hilarious sound when you shove them into a car? It’s true!
WHY ARE THOSE CAMELS IN THAT CAR, you may be saying. Well, according to the YouTube blurb, “A Bedouin resident of the Negev managed to complete the inconceivable feat when he stuffed two camels into his car in order to transport them to the West Bank Judea.” Obviously.
Apparently Ben Burtt (I had to look that up; originally I typed Burtt Bird) used sped-up camel braying as the sound of Tauntauns in Star Wars.
If you need more, there are many more camel photos here.
