Mali to replace French president's eaten camel

"Francois Hollande had left the creature with a family in Timbuktu for safekeeping, after it was presented to him by local residents in February. But it was promptly slaughtered and used in a tagine."


  1. I love the Reuters quote in the linked article:

    As soon as we heard of this, we quickly replaced it with a bigger and better-looking camel

    I mean, if you’re going to give someone a camel, you’d better not pick an ugly one.

    1. upto I looked at the check for $8157, I did not believe that my friends brother woz actualie erning money part-time on their computer.. there sisters neighbour haz done this less than 12 months and resently cleard the morgage on there house and purchased a brand new Aston Martin DB5. read more at, fab22.comCHECK IT OUT

  2. Maybe I’m wrong, but leaving a camel with someone ‘for safekeeping’ is really asking quite a lot.  I’m irritated when people bring less than perfectly behaved dogs into my house, even temporarily, if someone left a camel here because it was too much of a hassle to take with them I’d be super pissed.  And from what I’ve heard, camels are jerks, what kind of gift is that?  WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE? 

    1.  I missed the /sarcasm tag.  Maybe he paid the family?  Maybe he agreed to let the family use the camel as a beast of burden (not unknown in that part of the world)?
