…and apparently that camels could skate. It’s Jon Stewart’s own “Turkey Drop“:
No joke: The Daily Show brought a camel to the protests in Madison the other day, presumably to help make fun of the Cairo/Madison comparisons. As this video shows, the gag didn’t turn out so well:
Who knew that an animal indigenous to the Middle East couldn’t walk on snow and ice in the Midwest? Local firefighters eventually rescued the camel. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the Daily Show didn’t use any footage of the camel in its Tuesday night broadcast.
Poor thing! I wonder if PETA will protest the Daily Show?
