Project Christmas Fail

December 10, 2010

First Baptist Church of West Palm Beach’s Project Christmas 2010

Maybe they should cancel the camel for next year?

UPDATE: Brian has written the commentary for this video that I was too lazy to write:

That is classic! What the hell was the thought process behind bringing a live camel into the church?

Pageant Director: “Attendance was down last year at our Christmas pageant. We need a real hook for this year, something to pack ‘em in!”

Sycophant 1: “Maybe we could get Rick Pino to perform?”

PD: “Nah, he’s so five minutes ago…”

Sycophant 2: “How about a live camel? We could get one of the kids to lead him in from the atrium, down the aisle, and into the back corner of the stage.”

PD: “I love it! A large animal, known to be ill-tempered and skittish, bring it in the darkened, unfamiliar building with a bunch of camera flashes going off all around it! We’ll let one of the youth who has a horse, or maybe a large dog, lead it in… surely that’s no different from handling a camel! How could that possibly go wrong?!”

    Here’s Rudyard Kipling’s opinion of camels (“oonts” in the local Indian dialect)…

    What the video didn’t show was the circus bear that was rolling down the aisle behind the camel on a big ball, some jugglers and a contortionist from Cirque du Soliel.

    And can you imagine the amount of rabbit shit that must be everywhere in that church at Easter?

    Fortunately, “all appear over the hump”, including Lula Bell the camel. If you want to see the performance, you can still get tickets for $5 or $10, but alas, they took the Lulu Bell out of the act.
