Hump Day

12 camels being disqualified from a beauty pageant is your headline of the day, month and possibly the year

January 24, 2018

When it comes to beauty pageants, well, I couldn't tell you a damn thing about them. I'd imagine the contestants do anything to get an edge, just like any other form of competition. But what about camel beauty pageants in Saudi Arabia? My friends, that's where things just get out of control.

After you get over the fact that camel beauty pageants actually exist, you'll quickly find out that it's a savage scene. It's kill or be killed, dog eat dog, camel eat camel, you name it. With that being said, there is some integrity in the competition, and that's why 12 camels had to be disqualified from a contest in Saudi Arabia for ... wait for it ... getting Botox to improve their features, according to a report from The National. We're talking about camels here!

“They use Botox for the lips, the nose, the upper lips, the lower lips and even the jaw,” said Ali Al Mazrouei, 31, a regular attendee at Gulf festivals and son of a top Emirati breeder. “It makes the head more inflated so when the camel comes it’s like, ‘Oh look at how big is that head is. It has big lips, a big nose’.”

So, basically, these were the Kardashians of camels. If only we could disqualify the real Kardashians for the same indiscretions. What a wild story, and a perfect one for HUMP DAY-EEEEE.
