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