Over 13,000 camels to join beauty pageantry
More than 13,000 camels from Saudi Arabia, the UAE and other Gulf Arab countries will be herded inside a massive well-built enclosure in the Kingdom for the regions largest camel beauty contest, starting on Sunday.
Organisers said 13,678 male and female Arabian camels will take part in the event, which will attract 280 camel owners from Saudi Arabia, 22 from Kuwait, 17 from Qatar and five from the UAE.
The contest will be held in North Saudi Arabia and will last 31 days, during which three winners will be picked by a committee comprising prominent camel experts.
Saudi Arabia, the worlds largest oil exporter, has around 870,000 camels while there are nearly 380,000 camels in the UAE and 125,000 in Oman. The camel wealth is much smaller in Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain.

Camels are an acquired taste.
The more mundane majority prefer the Sheep Pageant, which will be held later this year, after ramadan.
So many humps, so little time.
I can just see the latest from Hollywierd.
Young achmed finds lost camel pup in desert,

Love is in the air
There will be many Arabs pitching tents as well.

“There she is, Miss Arabia!
“There she is, your ideal...”
“Arab Spring. Manly, yes, but I like it too.”
One toe over the line, sweet Jesus.
Does this hump make me look fat?
I honestly checked to be sure this didn’t come from Onion or something similar. There is enough material to keep a comedian well supplied for a lifetime.
