did someone ask for a camel?

I am pretty sure that in the stuffed alligator discussion, someone said they wished I’d been mailed a stuffed camel.

Well, wish no more.

The camel joins the as-yet-to-be-named alligator on the desk, but try as I may, I can’t remember who wanted a stuffed camel. If it’s you, lemme know. πŸ™‚

    Oh. My. God. I can’t believe you got a stuffed camel. It was me. (see my facebook) How the hell did you get a camel? Are you kidding me????

    THAT’S IT! It was Facebook!! I knew SOMEONE asked me for a stuffed camel, and I went through the blog comments and couldn’t figure out who and I hadn’t checked Facebook yet. NOW I remember.

    The camel came in the mail today. It was to invite me to an event at Mount Vernon.

    And, well, since you were the first person to ask for a stuffed camel, it’s got to go to you. On top of the eerie as hell coincidence that 48 hours after you ask for a camel, one appears.

    I KNOW- I now believe in the power of The Camel. I’m gonna name it Humperdink! This is too fucking funny.
    Should I put in a request now for a gorgeous man and a million dollars? I promise to donate to charity!!! πŸ˜‰

    I’m literally stunned that you conjured a camel.

    Start wishing for anything and everything to come to me in the mail. Money, men, free liquor that doesn’t smell funny, CDs, DVDs, A CAR!!!

    Is that how we’re getting the children to smoke these days?

    Since we’re placing requests, I also would like someone to mail you money, a new car and B.E. Taylor.

    B.E. Taylor shows up in this office and I’ll throw hands. You better believe it.

    Are you sure someone wasn’t offering you a dowry?

    Speaking of mail, my addition to the Happy Hour studio decor is still languishing in my car…

    Also, given the fact that said camel appears to be excreting dangerous push pins, you might want to turn it over to the authorities.

    Well, hold on there, Paige. That camel’s standing right by the keyboard; he looks like he’s ready to get to work, which is more than we can say about the lady behind the camera (much love, GoDub πŸ™‚ ). If said editor is smart, said editor would just give said camel a desk in the bullpen and put him to work. Even if said camel turns out to be a terrorist, at least she can get a couple articles out of him before Homeland Security figures out he’s an Animal of Interest…

    TW: Oh no you din’nt.

    Leave my sleeper cell camel out of this! He’s standing watch over the yet-to-be-named alligator and the purple piggy bank. So far, he’s just the desk bouncer.

    TW: Oh no you din’nt.

    Yes, I did πŸ™‚ As Chris Rock put it, “Yeah, I said it. It had to be said.”

    Leave my sleeper cell camel out of this!

    I think you just came up with a name for your camel: you can call him Sleeper, or Sleepy for short… After, it beats the heck out of Sopwith…

    He’s standing watch over the yet-to-be-named alligator

    The UF mascot’s name is Al Gator…

    and the purple piggy bank.

    Ask Cookie for help there, as naming cubicle pigs is her specialty, even though it was a cubicle pig who ratted out her identity to me (you can ask her about that too :))

    If he’s excreting thumb tacks, you might wanna take him to the vet… Cause you know that can’t feel good.

  14. November 21, 2008 at 4:13 pm

    TIME OUT PEOPLE!!! I’m protector of said camel (Humperdink) and he is not a terrorist! He arrived at gowdub’s cube at my request! Though I’m with Paige. If he’s dropping dueces filled w/ pushpins, he needs to go to the vet. ;-( Send me the bill.

    He’s not dropping thumbtack biscuits. Those were on the desk before he showed up. He seems to be resting comfortably, though I notice he’s moved to a more aggressive position over the yet-to-be-named alligator. If I were that ‘gator, I’d be nervous.

    That’s right– Humperdink has special powers. πŸ˜‰
