A new Army Captain was assigned to an outfit in a remote post in the African desert.
During his first inspection of the outfit, he noticed a camel hitched up behind the mess tent.
He asks the Sergeant why the camel was kept there. The nervous sergeant said,
“Well sir, as you know, there are 260 men here on the post, and no women. And sir, sometimes the men have ‘urges’.
That’s why we have the camel.”
The Captain says, “I can’t say that I condone this, but I understand about ‘urges’, so the camel can stay.”
About a month later, the Captain starts having his own ‘urges’.
Crazy with passion, he asks the Sergeant to bring the camel to his tent.
Putting a step-ladder behind the camel, the Captain climbs up, pulls his pants down and has a wild and insane time with the camel.
When he’s done, he asks the Sergeant, “Is that how the men do it?”
Very embarrassed, the Sergeant replies, “No, not really sir!”
“They usually just ride the camel into town where all the girls are.”
