Dog Eared Page: How the Camel Got His Hump

Just so Stories, Rudyard Kipling, never fully dressed, withoutastyle, dog eared page,

In the beginning of years, when the world was so new-and-all, and the Animals were just beginning to work for Man, there was a Camel, and he lived in the middle of a Howling Desert because he did not want to work; and besides, he was a Howler himself. So he ate sticks and thorns and tamarisks and milkweed and prickles, most 'scruciating idle; and when anybody spoke to him he said 'Humph!' Just 'Humph!' and no more.

- "How the Camel Got His Hump" from the Just-So Stories by Rudyard Kipling
