for ilex

angry camel, originally uploaded by Margo and George.

If Herman the frog is the heart of "Whatev" - camels are the soul of disdain.
(btw, the original statue can be found in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC)

Oh, my friend Margo, that's awfully sweet.

Is that an expression? "Camels are the soul of disdain"- I'm not familiar with it. It has a great ring to it, though.

Glad you like it! Actually, that's a line from my father, "camels are the soul of disdain." We always make a point of visiting camel statues or images in any museum we visit together.

I'm still rather fond of Herman though, he's very cute :)
