It's Monday, and you know what that means

A story about a clumsy camel.

What? We have Mammal Mondays now?

Does that mean you save big votes in Congress for Tectonic Tuesdays?
Or stories about Angela Merkel or the EU for Teutonic Tuesdays?

Why can't the camel and bison stories simply wait for Wascally Wascal Wednesdays?

OT.

I think Fox reported this morning that the YMCA is dropping the MCA. If that was Young Muslim Caring Association? Just asking.

The seriousness of the reporter was laughable. You'd swear there had been a horrific disaster, rather than a mishap with a animal. Must have been a slow new cycle that they lead with this. Additionally, that they dug up dirt on the company.

The Crystal Cathedral's Glory of Easter had Michael York (Pilate) and Robert Reed (Herod) in the cast one year. During rehearsal of York's big speech there was a black panther at his feet. The panther had been given a full chicken to keep it busy, but it finished before York did. It looked around, and decided to wrap its' paws York's leg. There was a collective gasp from cast and crew. Being the consumate professional, York looked down at the big cat wrapped around his leg, then turned back to delivering his speech. A few seconds later as the weight of the situation (and no doubt, the cat) sunk in, he looked back down and merely said, "Oh my." The handler enticed the cat to let go, but removing him from the stage was different matter. Once the panther was removed and Michael York was confirmed as ok, everyone was able to breath again. Other than a peacock pooping on a visitor, and a goat getting away from an actress (who shall remain nameless) the run was an outstanding success.

Nothing wrong with Mammal Mondays, Yojimbo, providing that we are looking at the Rule 5 sort of mammals!

Still, a collapsing camel can be considered comedic.

Dromedary or Bactrian?

......and before any one else says it, [yes Tim I'm looking at you], it's Adelaide AGAIN, well they reckon nothing happens here.
How many other places do you know where a Camel makes the news?

P.S. just realised that it is the 13th in your country, so I can celebrate my birthday all over again.
