A dozen beasts have been disqualified from this year’s Saudi "camel beauty contest"because their handlers used Botox to make them more handsome.

12隻牲畜遭今年的沙烏地「駱駝選美比賽」取消參賽資格,因為牠們的訓練者用了肉毒桿菌素來讓牠們變得更帥。

"The camel,"explained the chief judge of the show, Fawzan al-Madi, "is a symbol of Saudi Arabia. We used to preserve it out of necessity, now we preserve it as a pastime.”

該節目的首席裁判法贊.馬迪解釋道:「駱駝是沙烏地阿拉伯的一項象徵。我們過去出於生活必需而保存牠,現在我們把牠留著當消遣。」

For the Bedouin of Arabia, nothing is more essential than the camel, used for centuries for food, transport, as a war machine and companion.

對阿拉伯貝都因人來說,沒有東西比駱駝更為必要,數世紀以來被拿來當食物、運輸工具、戰爭機器與同伴。

So, the authorities have ramped up the country’s annual month-long camel festival, which was relocated last year from the remote desert to the outskirts of the capital. On a rocky desert plateau, the government has erected a permanent venue to host the headline events races and show competitions with combined purses of 213 million riyals.

所以,當局擴大舉辦該國一年一度長達一個月之久的駱駝節,該節慶去年從偏遠沙漠搬到首都外圍。在一座岩漠高原上,政府建了一處永久會場來主辦頭條重點活動:賽跑與走秀競賽,合計獎金高達2.13億里亞爾。
