A Camel
Today's specialist subject is Camels.

A camel is a horse designed by a committee.

It is important to note that Camel cigarettes are not made from Camels - which is a relief.

Camels can't swim: their weight distribution means that there heads go straight under the water.  Hence the expression; "You can lead a camel to water but a pencil must be lead".

Camels don't take any crap: they are well-known for spitting at people therefore illustrating their keen judge of character.

Some Camels
Winston Churchill was atop a camel accompanied by, none other than, Lawrence of Arabia. Churchill was thrown to the ground. Lawrence explained that the camel blew himself out in the morning when he heard that he was to have the honour of carrying a great man, but when he saw the way Churchill rode he decided that he must have been misinformed. He deflated himself and the saddle girth slipped round, throwing Winston groundwards. The name of the camel was not recorded.

That's all I know about camels: now you know.
