Camel Beauty Contest Held in Abu Dhabi

One of the most unique beauty competitions was held this week. About 20,000 camels are competing in the Mazayin Camel beauty competition as part of the Al Dhafrah Festival. You can pick up a looker for prices reaching millions of dirhams or just watching the curvaceous Camelus.

“Purity” is one of the chief factors in setting the price. However, older camels do better in this beauty contest than younger camels. At the festival, it is not uncommon to have 15,000 to 20,000 camels sold.

If only the Little Drummer Boy knew that his wayward camel could have gone for big bucks, the whole story may have ended up with LDB becoming a prominent camel rancher.

It is something to keep in mind for next year for that loved one who has everything.

  1. This has degenerated even below my level. Where’s my slapstick? Where’s my red stick-on nose? Where’s my whopee cushion? Damn it- I can’t find anything around here!

    Who knew that a story about camels could turn dignified bloggers into Beavis and Butt-Head?



  3. It is suddenly very difficult to think of a joke which doesn’t involve humps of some kind?!?

  4. A traveling salesman’s car breaks down in a small desert town. Desperate to get across the desert to his next appointment the man decides to purchase a camel from the local camel dealer. There was only one camel available, and it had one little problem, the dealer told him. The camel was over-sexed. The salesman figured that wouldn’t be a problem as the stretch of desert he had to cross was devoid of life forms and the camel would not encounter temptation. A third of the way into the desert the camel comes to a stop, kneels and rolls over onto its back revealing a giant erection. The salesman is desperate, so he decides he will go along with the camel’s needs and gives him a hand job. Fully satisfied the camel nods his head, stands up and they resume their trek. After another 5 miles the camel stops, kneels, and rolls over onto his back displaying another giant erection. The salesman dutifully beats off the camel. The camel sighs, smiles, stands up and they resume their journey. Finally, in the middle of the barren desert and half the distance from their destination, the camel once again stops, kneels, and rolls over onto his back displaying his third giant erection. The salesman curses the camel as he prepares to deliver a third manual masturbation but the camel, disliking the curse words, shakes his head no. The salesman in exasperation looks the camel in the face and says, “For Christ’s sake, what do you want now?” The camel smirks then puckers up and makes little sucking noises.

  5. An englishman an irishman and a scotsman were in the sweltering desert walking around looking desperatly for something to eat and drink, when, as if out of nowhere, a camel appeared.

    The englishman caught the camel and spluttered I support “Liverpool, so I suppose I better eat the liver.”

    The scotsman immediately shouted, “Well I support Hearts so I’ll eat the heart.”

    And then the rather mentally challenged irishman said, “I support Arsenal, but I don’t feel hungry any more.”

  6. I have some really great camel jokes but they’re all dirty … I don’t wish to corrupt the pure so soon after Christmas …

    Go ahead, I doubt Buddha will call you a racist. As long as you don’t refer to a camel jockey you’ll probably be O.K.

  7. Elaine M.,

    I don’t think it would be fair to let the Bactrian camels participate. They are, without a doubt, the hottest of the camels.

  8. Here’s video depicting the response of one of the male camels.
