wanted to rent a car but seems the only one left had just
been rented by 2 sailors off the same ship--a red Fiat
convertable. "But," said the rental agent, "Not to fear.
I have this camel you can rent real cheap, just as good
as a car and you don't have to put gas in her."
"Camel," said the Marines. "How the hell do you drive a
camel down 5th Avenue?" "Well," said the agent, " you
just get on the hump, take the reins and say go! The
camel does the rest. If she comes to a red light, she
stops and when it turns green she goes--you don't even
have to put on the brakes to make her stop."
So the Marines rented the camel and got on and headed
down 5th Avenue. Sure enough, everything the agent said
was true, all they had to do when they wanted to turn was
tap on her shoulder and she would turn. She always
stopped at red lights and when the light turned green,
she was off like a herd of greased turtles! So, they
decided to take her down to the Village and pick up
some girls! Pretty soon the marines came walking back
to the rental lot, without the camel. "Where's my
camel?" demanded the agent. "Well," said the Sgt,
we came to a red light and the camel stopped, just
like you said. Then them two swabbies pulled up next
to us in that red Fiat. One of them jerk sailors said
"Look at them two assholes on that camel..." well, we
got off to look, the light turned green and we ain't
seen your camel since."
