Camel Poo Lip Gloss.

On our recent holiday we had great fun going camel riding along the beach. The man who owned the camels was such a funny man and talked non-stop teaching us all about camels and how they were introduced to Australia, how many of them were in the wild, what they ate, how old they were when he retired them....
He was a mine of information. And then he told us this little gem....

"You know when you are lost in the desert? 
And you get dehydrated? 
And your lips get all cracked and chapped? 
And you lick them to soften them? 
And it doesn't help? 
And you lick them again? 
but it makes them worse? 
You look for some nuggets of camel poo on the sand. 
You break one open to expose the inside. 
You rub it back and forth across your chapped lips.....

You're thinking I'm going to tell you that it fixes them aren't you? 
Well it doesn't. 
It just stops you from licking them!"

  2. Okay - I did one of those embarrassing little snort/laugh things the ending was so blunt :) very funy!

  3. Oh, I am so glad you said it would stop the licking. My stomach was thinking about doing a turn over. LOL

  4. ROFL...phew I thought I was going to have to go out to my pasture and politely ask Gizmo for a donation when I ran out of lip gloss!

    That is hilarious! On my next camel post may I link up to this? Kim

  5. This reminds me of a program I was watching one day when I was home alone. My oldest daughter use to watch it so I took a look...it is this guy who shows you how to survive in all kinds of situations. He was in a desert setting and talking about if you were thirsty how you could find a pile of dung (can't remember which animal for reasons to follow), crack it open and drink the juice. Yes, drink ~ and he even demonstrated by taking a good, long drink...I almost lost my lunch! I was able to handle the eating of bugs, but that was too much ~ off to another channel. Leave that show to the kids cause I would have to die of thirst if dung juice was my only option! Shudder :)

  6. Yeah, that would stop ME from licking.....no doubt there!

  7. Can't. Stop. Laughing!
    I love this!
