Irish Circus pulls camel to McDonalds for some publicity
Oh, Limerick. What a wild county you are. Townsfolk were shocked the other day to see a camel being brought to the McDonald’s drive-thru. It looks like Courtney Brothers Circus had a hankering for both flesh and a good bit of attention, which, of course, they received when their stunt blew up all over social media. I mean, I too would take a photo of a massive herbivore being pulled to the drive thru window for a fast food chain known for exorbitant animal slaughter just because of how horrifically ironic the whole debacle is. Ew.
According to Irish Mirror, “Animal Rights Action Network (ARAN) spokesman John Carmody encouraged people not to find the photo funny but to get in touch with local councillors at the “absolute craziness” of the situation.” Irish Mirror reader Eric Hudson was able to get a snapshot of the absurdism of it all.
As I have a mild obsession with my Irish ancestry, I can assure you there are better ways to get your craic fix when visiting Ireland that don’t involve going to the circus. Trust me, the locals in the pubs are far more fun and a real delight.
