Camel Power has multiple aspect - leave Perl aside. One use I will never forget.

Some years ago, we made a desert tour in Egypt some days around New Year's eve. It is terrible cold in a desert, when the sun is gone. You are glad for everything to warm yourself (no petting with camels in mind). A hot tea would be great. We stopped between some bushes and one Egyptian showed us some small, brown egg-shaped pieces, we should collect. We did, made a small fire with them, boiled some water to have some tea. That was a great experience.

Thanks to camels (dromedars in Egypt) I learned that even if you have to collect sh*t with both hands, the result can be the top of a great experience.

My vote is energy from Camel-droppings.

And it came to pass that in time the Great God Om spake unto Brutha, the Chosen One: "Psst!"

    Thanks, but I'd prefer the power of Camel Toe.
