Lewd Lyrics

By | October 28, 2006

Extract from a smutty rugby song that came back to me while washing the dishes this morning:

The sexual life of the camel
Is stranger than anyone thinks
At the height of the mating season
It tries it on with the Sphinx
But the Sphinx’s posterior passage
Is clogged with the sand of the Nile
Which accounts for the hump on the camel
And the Sphinx’s inscrutable smile

– Origin unknown

Well, it made me laugh anyway. In case this is a cultural thing, “Having the Hump” is an expression meaning being disgruntled/upset/pissed off, specifically because of another party.
