Camel At The Raymore-Peculiar High School On Hump Day
Some Wednesdays are just plain old Wednesdays, and some are Hump Days. But on last Wednesday, Hump Day meaning was taken to a whole new level. In a peculiar little town in Missouri, which is actually named Peculiar, high school seniors decided it’s time to start traditional pranking around.
Their first stop was a Raymore-Peculiar High School front yard where they exhibited an exotic sight: an actual live camel. A few of senior students, Bekah Mueller, Suzie Lottie and others, came to school early, around 6:15 a.m., to welcome their prank star: a camel Gabrielle. Around 6:30 a.m. Jerry Aswegan, the owner of A-Z Animal Adventures, set up a pen on the front lawn.
Previously, students behind the prank arranged a meeting with the principal Steven Miller, to make sure that the whole event is safe, harmless, and in accordance to the school rules. They planned it all out, and easily convinced the principal that everything is going to be fine.
Explaining how they came up with the idea, Suzie Lottie said that there were some commercials that inspired them, which used Hump Day as a main theme. Mueller added that this was going to be their last Hump Day at Ray-Pec High School, so they simply had to bring the camel. For Aswegan, the camel provider, this request was not a surprise, since he was previously asked to bring pigs to schools for “kiss the pig” sort of events.
Lottie said that everybody from the school came out to see the camel, adding that they were all super excited and laughing. “They couldn’t believe we actually got a camel,” said Lottie, while Mueller claims to have heard some of the juniors and sophomores saying that they have to do something better than what class of 2014 did. Even teachers enjoyed the prank, and one of them said that that was one the best pranks in her 23-year-long career.
According to students no punishment will be given for their prank, but the school declined to comment about this event to media.
There were no official comments coming from the camel, but Gabrielle seemed to enjoy the hour she has spent at the Ray-Pec High School. According to Lottie, Gabrielle likes to give hugs and kisses, but not many students enjoyed them, since they are quite slobbery.
Students took pictures with the star of the day, Gabrielle. They can be seen on Instagram and around the Internet.
