If you’re thinking to yourself, “Is that a robot camel jockey??,” the answer is yes, yes it is.

I assume the replacement of child jockeys is motivated by humanitarian concerns, but is anyone going to want to watch a race in which a robot rides a camel? Okay, okay, I agree it’s really cool and I *would* want to see it and probably would laugh my ass off the first ten times, but after that…?

Would Americans still want to watch Nascars drive around in a circle hundreds of times and occasionally burst into flames if they knew there were no people inside? My suspicion is maybe still yes, but not as much…
