Sad story.  Did anyone notice the ad for Stayfriends Klassenfoto?   What caught my eye was the suggested graduation years, starting in 1940.

Must be hard to put together a reunion class from the war years.

// No, I did not see that.

The fire, which was reported by local residents around 2 a.m., engulfed the barn housing the camels in flames. Only five camels that were not in the barn at the time could be rescued by the owner.


What a horrible way to die. :-(

FTFA:
"The cause of the fire remains unclear, and local police said they were investigating all leads. "We're looking for the needle in the haystack," one investigator said. "

Maybe they should look for the lighter instead...

You know what other German lit up a few Camels in his day?

Clearly he didn't heed the Surgeon General's warning.

The good news is there's a giant camel roast tonight. 1/2 off. Delicious, delicious camel. Get it while it's all hot and juicy.

The owner of the farm, his family and employees had to be counselled at the scene of the fire. "His life's work has gone up in flames," a police officer said.

That is so sad.  I can't even make a joke about all the camels spitting madly on the fire before they all perished.

According to media reports, he had unsuccessfully sought a buyer for the farm in recent years.


Insurance fraud.

That was my first thought...  it's sad either way.

Who farms Camels? Do they eat Camel over there?

I think the person who coined the phrase, "I'd walk a mile for a camel" figured on lighting it when he arrived, but I'm not sure this is what he had in mind...

Oblig..

If they're anything like horses a barn fire is absolutely awful.  I took part in recuing 18 horses from a fire a bunch of years back.  They were frantic (Obviously) and 3 people got severely hurt.  1 with a broken back, one with a broken pelvis, don't remember the third.

Basically you open the doors and start kicking their asses to get them to run into a burning shed row and hope they don't turn back.  Then you spend most of the next two days finding them because once they clear the fire they're headed for the hills.

I saw that, but I don't know if I agree.  It sounds like this guy devoted his life to these animals.  Only a psycho could take care of them for years, then just cold-bloodedly burn them all up.  And most psychos don't commit so much of themselves to any other person or thing to the extent it would take to run an operation like this one.

So, camels died for lack of water to put out the fire. Might this qualify for the irony tag?
 
2013-02-01 12:59:02 PM
I heard they were going to make a show about that farm, called "Drama Dairy".
 
2013-02-01 01:17:03 PM
That is really a horrible story.  I hope most of those animals died from the smoke.  It's gotta be better than burning to death.

86 camels 86ed.  Film at 11 on 29.

25 is 6 to 4.

Too bad, I always liked camels.

I hear they can be nasty mofos, but they always like they're chilling. I can dig that.

It's because they are doing advanced mathematics in their heads.

Actually, he got lit up by an Australian on the ground.
