Apparently you can buy beauty pageant winners in the United Arab Emirates.

Dubai’s crown prince bought a camel for an unprecedented high price of $2.7 million during a desert festival in the emirate of Abu Dhabi.

Sheik Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, the son of Dubai’s ruler Sheik Mohammed and his heir apparent, bought 16 camels for $4.5 million during a camel beauty pageant taking place during a desert carnival that aims to preserve the nomadic way of life in the oil-rich Gulf.

I’m at a loss for words on this one.
