Bo­tox camels banned from beauty show

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A DOZEN camels have been dis­qual­i­fied from this year’s Saudi Ara­bia camel beauty con­test – be­cause their han­dlers used BO­TOX to make them more hand­some.

Seek­ing to trans­form the con­ser­va­tive king­dom, the Saudi au­thor­i­ties are try­ing to smooth the path for re­form by em­pha­sis­ing tra­di­tional as­pects of their cul­ture.

For the Be­douin of Ara­bia, noth­ing is more es­sen­tial than the camel – used for cen­turies for food, trans­port, as a war ma­chine and also as a com­pan­ion.

Au­thor­i­ties ramped up the coun­try’s an­nual month-long camel fes­ti­val, which was re­lo­cated last year from the re­mote desert to the out­skirts of the cap­i­tal Riyadh.

But speak­ing about the Bo­tox ban, chief judge Fawzan al-Madi said: “The camel is a sym­bol of Saudi Ara­bia.

“We used to pre­serve it out of ne­ces­sity, now it’s as a pas­time.” HAVE we got great news for you, folks – you can get your UN­MISS­ABLE mix of babes, boobs and crazy news THREE TIMES A WEEK!
