Camel racing is pretty big in parts of the Arab world, and the camel jockeying used to be done by little kids, since they don’t weigh a whole lot. But then, after it came to light that most of these kids were being horribly abused, and not having many tiny Latin Americans at their disposal to jockey, they turned to remote controlled robot jockeys. Which is all fine and well, except now the camel racing world is in an uproar over the use of tasers in the robots to make the camels go faster. Call it Robo-Camel-Don’t-Tase-Me-Brobotgate if you will.
Several men that sold the taser camel jockey bots have been arrested, but is it the end of the controversy? What if someone’s using ROBOT CAMELS?
