Bert the PR Camel--this could only happen in El Lay.

Sounds like a photoshopportunity (Hurry--before Big Tobacco sues for mascot infringement).

Send him over to Iraq.

I knew the world couldn't go long without a scrotum-nosed mascot.

Hey he's "He's very intelligent"
2003-04-06 10:29:59 AM  
Good thing he's in PR, he'd probably spit all over civil rights.

2003-04-06 10:42:07 AM his sheriff's ID card after a swearing-in ceremony Saturday

How exactly does one swear-in a camel? Doesn't a swearing-in require that the swearee be able to speak?

We all know where that camel came from.
2003-04-06 11:44:16 AM  
He is a PR person?! Son of a biatch, that bastard is taking away my future job...wah!
2003-04-06 12:00:32 PM  
Nope. He's a PR CAMEL. For the Po-LEESE department, of course.

Try to keep up, here, will ya?
2003-04-06 12:03:23 PM  
Camels can launch a huge gob of spit to an accuracy of about 40 feet.

"He's very intelligent," Fite told the Inland County Daily Bulletin

Yeah he'll probably raise the average IQ of the department by a couple of points.

Seriously, only police officers could be retarded enough to get a "PR camel". I mean ive seen the LAPD do some stupid stuff, but a farking camel?

They probably figured that if a camel can sell cigarettes to kids, then it would be the perfect marketing tool for brainwashing kids.

It is now my mission to find this so-called "PR camel" and get it intoxicated...

And History repeats itself, but not as badly as the first time.

I'm talking about that Roman Emperor who appointed his horse Consul. I don't remember his name, which is probably why I did badly on that test.

How long before is receives a billy club and the go-ahead to beat minorities?

I can think of two pretty silly safety mascots who have been retired.

Elmer the Safety Elephant - was around for a years and years until he was 86'ed someone finally asked "what do ELEPHANTS have to do with safety?"

Barney the Safety Beaver - was a safety mascot for the local transit authority. He had a good reign until the other meaning for "beaver" became popular!

Come to think of it, this would be a good photoshop theme - silly safety mascots!
2003-04-06 05:29:11 PM  
this is very lol.
2003-04-06 07:43:39 PM  
hmmm...reminds me of Emperor Caligula's horse.

(for those not remembering Roman history, Emperor Caligula made his horse a member of the Roman Senate.)
