Never pass up the unusual, you fine old girl,
or the truth might make your whiskers curl
after all, in Babylon Gardens you do reside;
is it impossible for the strange there to hide?
Peanuts’ guessed at the gaggle of guests
after dealing with Tarot and Joeys’ pests
but he doesn’t realise that in comes a Milton
to go and steal the treasure the house is built on.
Here he comes, all decked out in flannel;
and somehow he knows how to speak Camel .
The human enters, seeking fortune and fame.
I doubt he’ll find it. He is kinda lame.

What's with the Arab outfit? He's already sneaking around with the intent to rob the place, a simple ski mask would've sufficed as a disguise, there's hardly a need to cosplay.

Looking authentic certainly doesn't seem to make the camel any more cooperative.

Well, we got the name, and likely the Gender of the Camel... And she's snarky as all Howl.

From what I can guess, she's saying: Like I'd take orders from a Man in a Stupid hat.

Of course, for all we know, Rick may have used this to Slip a Profanity in the place of the word, 'Stupid', and unless you know the lingo, can't read it.

Rick's Arabic font seems all broken apart. Here's from Google Translate (let's see if the forums can handle right-to-left mid post :twisted: ):
ولكن لماذا لا احصل على قبعة؟
Translation: But why not get a hat?

More specifically, Sophia is asking why she doesn't have a hat. No, I'm not literate in Arabic, I'm guessing from context and the strip's alt-text.

Do humans even get hat powers?

It would be aMAzing if Thomas got turned into an animal. Maybe another camel.

I think you're missing a squiggle on one of the letters :)

ولكن لماذا لا أحصل على قبعة؟
which Google translates as "But why do not I get a hat?"

Two things we found out:

1) The camel is intelligent (but only speaks Arabic).

2) The camel is a girl.

Now the question is, what is Thomas' fate going to be? Will he get the Raiders death, or the Crusade death? :twisted:

Well, considering the only humans we know of who interacted with Pete and/or his temple aren't really human anymore (One is currently a dog, the other was shown in heaven to have the soul of a ferret), and we know Temple Effects linger (magic glowing rabbit's foot)...

Thomas may not be 'Thomas' much longer.

Camels are notoriously intelligent, so getting turned into one would be a step up for Thomas.

The question seems legit now, Peanut. :) You saw that camel too, Fox? How come you consider it a guest star? :P Come on, Sabrina, a camel can be always useful. ;) It's again Thomas, he doesn't give up... :P Oh, he knows Arab, and good to finally know the camel's name. :D Thomas won't "survive" inside the temple, I bet so. ;)

I'm going to go with neither, because without invoking my folly of claiming no-one dies in this comic, I'll just say that neither scenarios are particularly palatable considering how upbeat HPs! is most of the time.
Oh, and Karishad's shenanigans have eaten away at the SFX budget like it's no-one's business...

I still think that Sophia is the same camel as the one in the 10,000 B.C. arc.

I wasn't expecting the camel to speak at all yet alone speak in Arabic. I was expecting it to be like the chicken, a non-speaking background character used for a gag every now and then.

NOTE: The arabic has been updated with the proper ligatures. Manga Studio doesn't support them so I basically needed to import a sufficiently large enough raster image of the text to get it right.
