These are some shots from the annual Camel Festival of Bikaner in India. The event holds all kinds of camel competitions, like racing, beauty pageants, dancing, and even a haircut contest. Which, by the way, is not what you’d think — the camels GET the haircuts, they don’t GIVE the haircuts. I know, I know, I’m disappointed too. I’d pay good money to see a camel wielding a pair of scissors! The only thing missing from the competition line-up is a spitting contest. At first I was all “Ah man! No spitting contest. What gives?” but then I saw this picture of a camel in lipstick and I totally forgot what I was talking about. Quality reporting, folks! I’ve got a knack for it.
