A camel met a turtle on the hot Sahara sands. Said the camel, “It’s a puzzle as I wander through the lands, but no matter where I travel, I am much ashamed to say, I get baffled and befuddled, and I quickly lose my way."
Said the turtle, “How I envy you your long and slender legs as I slowly trod and toddle on these short and stubby pegs. Though I never lose direction when I travel far and near, just to go the shortest distances can take me half a year.”
“Then it’s settled,” said the camel. “We were meant to be a pair, and with one upon the other we can travel anywhere.” So they nodded to each other, and they set off down the track with the turtle at a waddle and the camel on his back.
