camels & umbrellas


did you know that camels are spooked by umbrellas to the extent that it can send the whole members of the herd scattering in all directions?

i have read in a local newspaper here about a bangladeshi man being beaten up by two saudi bedouin shepherds after the umbrella he was using for shade sent their camels freaking out and scampering.  the man later complained to the police, who arrested the shepherds who in turn told police that the man with the umbrella ruined their day requiring them to look for and collect the traumatized camels.

the moral lesson: never ever show camels umbrellas!  lol.
