You can have a camel fall on you and live

Years ago, I knew a couple whose four year old daughter was hit by a car. When asked if she'd learned anything, she replied, 'You can get hit by a car and live.'

At the time it was a scary thing. Later, it became an amusing anecdote. Well, several people will no doubt recount the Christmas a camel fell on them in Florida.

Everybody sing!: For onto us a camel's fallen ...: Animal topples into audience in rehearsal at Fla. church Christmas pageant

No animals (or humans) were harmed in the making of this Christmas pageant. The camel was supposed to kneel and, well, being a camel, it balked and stepped sideways instead, toppling off the stage and into the pews. But everyone's okay, so like I said, it'll be one of those amusing family Christmas stories.
