LGF: “In the religious apartheid kingdom of Saudi Arabia, women are forced into shapeless black sacks, forbidden to drive, and beaten by the religious police if they accidentally expose an ankle, but camels have elaborate beauty pageants.” Not a joke:

The legs are long, the eyes are big, the bodies curvaceous. Contestants in this Saudi-style beauty pageant have all the features you might expect anywhere else in the world, but with one crucial difference — the competitors are camels. This week, the Qahtani tribe of western Saudi Arabia has been welcoming entrants to its Mazayen al-Ibl competition, a parade of the “most beautiful camels” in the desolate desert region of Guwei’iyya, 120 km (75 miles) west of Riyadh.

“In Lebanon they have Miss Lebanon,” jokes Walid, moderator of the competition’s Web site. “Here we have Miss Camel.”

Question: Do the pronoun police at PETA approve?
