12 Camels Were Just Disqualified From A Beauty Contest... For Using Botox

12 Camels Were Just Disqualified From A Beauty Contest... For Using Botox
Updated 4 months ago

 In what has to be the most ridiculous story of the year, a dozen camels were disqualified from a "beauty contest" in Saudi Arabia's anual King Abdulaziz Camel Festival for being inject Botox to improve their looks. 

  Ali Al Mazrouei, a son of a top camel breeder said:  

“They use Botox for the lips, the nose, the upper lips, the lower lips, and even the jaw."

The idea behind the injections is to make the camels' head, lips and nose have a larger appearance, thereby enhancing their beauty. This, of course, is from the human perspective of beauty since the camels have not voice an opinion and would no doubt rather be left alone. 

 The camel beauty pageant showcases more than 30,000 camels that are judged on the shape of their lips ,the size of their humps and the size of their nose.  Let's hope the winner isn't showcased in a magazine where Photoshop will be used to make them appear thinner. 

Twitter responded with the perfect amount of contempt this story deserves. 

For many concerned with the welfare of the camels this was no laughing matter. 

It didn't go unnoticed that the camels seems to get better treatment then women. 

The majority thought they were being punked by an article from The Onion.
