I'd Like to HumpYou
Mazayin Dhafra Camel Festival in Abu Dhabi is where the festivities began,
On April 2, to last 11 days,
Not a Victoria’s Secret or Miss Universe pageant,
The camels were paraded from many countries to celebrate the culture of the Bedouin.
The winners were there and sent losers home in defeat.
The festival also included a camel beauty contest, where thousands of owners
strutted their animals in a bid for the top prize of finest overall camel and separate
categories such as best neck, head, lips, nose, hump, legs or feet.
The Best in Show, was a camel that fetched $2.7 million dollars,
That is about 400 filled up gasoline tanks in the future,
Sheik Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum,
The Prince of the Dubai,
Shoveled out his money for the female dromedary,
In your tea one lump or two?
In all 17,000 camels were entered into the beauty show.
How many harems would $2.7 million (or 1.8 million Euros) buy in Dubai?
“I’d walk a mile for a camel” is only an expression that is outdated.
But for the Prince of Dubai, he seems to have been elated.
