Guess What? Camel-Riding Robots Are Armed With Stun Guns
Our friends over at Gearfuse aptly point out that the execution of this swindle is indeed sad for the world of international camel racing, but they also encourage us to hold the flippin' phone: Camel-riding robots? With stun guns? What are these playboys thinking? This practice is not only cruel to camel-kind, but humankind, too, seeing as the race participants are creating -- nay, encouraging -- a cavalry of stun-gun-toting, camel-whipping robots. The robots ride on the camels' backs, everyone. And then shoot people (err... camels) with stun guns. And apparently international alarms have not been raised.
Dubai police have reportedly gotten the situation under control, so, if you are ever in the Middle East, please, by all means, take in a camel race. And watch the jockey's metallic, manipulative, soul-less form riding expensive, lightning-fast camels.
