ISIS Beach Party

Abdullah just can’t wait for dark!  Look at those beauties!!

ISIS_Beach_PartyMidnight at the oasis/ Send your camel to bed
Shadows painting our faces/ Traces of romance in our heads
Heaven’s holding a half-moon/ Shining just for us
Let’s slip off to a sand dune, real soon/ And kick up a little dust
Come on, Cactus is our friend/ He’ll point out the way
Come on, till the evening ends/ Till the evening ends
You don’t have to answer/ There’s no need to speak
I’ll be your belly dancer, prance/ And you can be my sheik

Maria Muldaur – “Midnight at the Oasis”


Pissed Camel Decapitates Negligent Lover

From the Times of India comes this stomach churning reminder that even if you named your camel Clyde, you still better not piss him off,  “Tied in heat all day, angry camel severs owner’s head“.

JAISALMER: Left in the heat with its legs tied all day, a camel attacked its owner and severed his head in anger in Rajasthan’s Barmer district on Saturday. About 25 villagers struggled for 6 hours to calm the animal down.
Camel_Xing_Warning_Sign_250Urjaram of Mangta village was entertaining guests at his house on Saturday night when he suddenly realised that his camel had been out in the heat all day with its legs tied. He was attacked when he tried to untie the annoyed animal.”The animal lifted him by the neck and threw him on to the ground, chewed the body and severed the head,” villager Thakara Ram said. Villagers revealed that the camel had attacked Urjaram in the past as well.

As a general rule, camels are much easier to reason with when “It’s Midnight at the Oasis“.
