Camel Happiness

I feel like I owe readers more camels on this blog, lest I get charged with false advertisement. And if Google search words that lead to my blog are any indication, there is a demand for posts on camel sex that I have not been meeting.

I do not, as of yet, have anything interesting to say about camel sex. But I do have this wonderfully happy camel picture. Hopefully it will do as a first step towards a blog that better lives up to its name.

    Love those faces.

    …how about more posts with hammers? Or Hammer…

  • ‘Tis Himself

    You’ve done camels, so when are you going to do hammers? Then there’s the conjunction of these two items which supposedly the blog commemorates.

  • Jeremy McMillan

    That picture would be slightly more apt if there was a way to make it orient to whichever side your blog’s ads are.

    You’ve seen images of the camel beauty pageants, camel grooming contests? The fur is clipped and maybe even hennaed into fabulous designs worth of the most elegant carpets. It’s pretty out there.

    Eh, I think Camels with Hammers is a pretty cool guy. Philosophizes and doesn’t afraid of anything.

  • Pierce R. Butler

    Can the camel give a Vulcan salute too?

    Heehee – the absolute delight in the image put a smile on my face at the beginning of what promises to be a long and trying work-day. Thanks :)

    Dan, this is an awesome picture – so full of joy. Mind if I share it on my own blog?

    I feel like I should know this, but what does the blog title mean?

  • BenSix

    That picture is the best thing I’ve seen on any blog ever.

      Pretty darn good, but needs more lion. ;)
