There was a tour bus in Egypt that stopped in the middle of a town square. The tourists are all shopping at the little stands surrounding the square. One tourist looks at his watch, but it is broken, so he leans over to a local who is squatted down next to his camel. "What time is it, sir?"

The local reaches out and softly cups the camels balls in his hand, and raises them up. "It's about 3:00", he says. The tourist can't believe his eyes.

He runs back to the bus, and sure enough, it is 3:00. He tells a few of the fellow tourists, "That man can tell the time by the weight of the camel's balls! One of the doubting tourists walks back to the local and asks him the time, the same thing happens! It is 3:05.p.m. He runs back to tell the story. Finally, the bus driver wants to know how he does it. He walks over and asks the local how does he know the time from the camels balls.

The local says, "Sit down here and grab the camels balls". "Now, lift them up in the air. Now, look underneath them to the other side of the courtyard, where that clock is hanging on the wall."
