Where’s the beef ?
NW India has a large desert and I have seen camels in that region.
“...thrashed him to death...”
Is that a Brit term?
Good...if the towelheads don't like it, there's always Pakistan!
True. But camels don’t roam the
streets as sacred animals. I say
give the Arabs something to steal
that they’re familiar with,
instead of stealing someone’s
