Today's post is brought you you by the Magnificent Camel. This post came into being when I was chatting with my spouse, having a perfectly normal conversation about camel butts. I'm not really sure how we got into the camel discussion. Somehow we just did and it partially evolved into a discussion about their bodies. I suddenly wondered if they had tails and although I've ridden a camel, I really wasn't sure.
"Do camels have tails?" I asked.
"I don't think so." I got back.
"Do they just have empty butts?" I said, thinking that didn't seem right to me. "Like us," I added as though I might be misunderstood.
We had to Google it and the first hit was this adorable item that was missing a butt view:
"Argh." Not helpful, though I still ordered one because I don't HAVE a Christmas sleight with a camel inside it. I searched again and I felt stupid. Of course they don't have empty butts. Camels DO have tails:
Now I don't know why I thought camels didn't have tails. In further research I discovered that they actually have tufted tails, which is really fun to say. Say it out loud.
"My Camel has a Tufted Tail."
See? If you didn't really say it out loud, do it and see if it makes you laugh. Try saying it with "My camel does not have an empty butt, but my camel has a tufted tail. I do not have a camel toe." If that doesn't make you laugh, you may need to drink more. Or, I need to drink less.
Either way, now you know for sure that camels have tufted tails. Even if you knew they had tails, I bet you didn't know they were tufted. Unless you are a camelologist or a tuft expert. Aren't you glad you read this? (No, you can't get that 2 minutes back, sorry, but you can get a camel in a sleigh decoration!)
