The Fastest Camel

A man had traveled into town after several weeks in the desert with his trusty camel. The camel had been his sole companion for years but eventually, time had slowed the poor beast down.

The man was considering getting a new camel when he saw a sign outside of a store advertising the following:


The man looks at his camel and decides to give it a shot. He goes in the store with his camel and the vendor asks him,” What can I do for you?”.

“Well, sir,” the man replies, ” I noticed your sign and I’m interested in your help. You see my camel’s been slowing down a bit and I don’t really want to trade him in for a new one.”

The vendor says, “That won’t be necessary here. We make your camels run faster. It’s guaranteed.”

“O.K. Let’s do it.”

The vendor says,” Please pull your camel over this way onto the platform.”

While the man is steadying his camel onto the platform, the vendor disappears into another room and returns with two large bricks.

“Stand back,” he cautions the traveler.

The vendor goes behind the camel with bricks in hand, and smashes the camel’s balls.

The camel runs out of the place like a bat out of hell.

“Wow!,” said the man,”That’s the fastest I’ve seen him run in years! But how am I going to reach him now?”

The vendor says with a smile,”Please step onto the platform, sir.”
