Camels are pissed by default, though. --Kels 22:24, 5 January 2008 (EST)

I like how the news that camels can fit through eyes of needles comes on the Feast of the Epiphany. CЯacke® 22:46, 5 January 2008 (EST)
Not sure if it's apocryphal, but isn't camel (the animal) actually a mistranslation of some similar sounding word that actually means a type of rope, or very coarse yarn? I remember hearing that, but I honestly can't remember where. --Kels 23:00, 5 January 2008 (EST)
I've also heard the "needle" being a style of gate (like in a walled city) a "needle gate" that is only wide enough to allow single persons to enter/exit, to cut down on marauding bands coming into wide open towns.
I think though, this was supposed to be taken literally, to show the impossibleness of the situation. (Of course this is where fat preachers decide this part is figurative.) 23:12, 5 January 2008 (EST) CЯacke®
