"Wanted a camel".
The funny thing is, here, in my rural suburb, some people have them (I don't know why, but they do).
They should have asked me. A friend of mine was the promotions manager for a large cash and carry, they were promoting Tilda rice and he asked if I knew of where he could get an elephant, I said I'd do it, not knowing where I'd get one. I called Billy Smarts circus and managed to hire one. The next request was for a camel. I got one of those too.
Then there were flamenco dancers, jazz bands, (booked the Temperance Sever, for anyone that remembers them), and all sorts of other stuff.
