Drumroll and a camel.

Ready? brrrrrrrrrr…you know, I can’t actually make that drumroll sound with my mouth.  So I guess it makes sense that I have no idea how to write it here, either.  Anyway, picked at random using a random number generator (I had this whole elaborate plan of writing the numbers of all the comments down and [...]
