It appears that my esteemed government has changed the rules about about 
which pets one might keep at home. Apart from all the usual suspects, it 
appears one may keep a water buffalo but, crucially, one will *not* be 
able to keep a camel. Apparently, camels are dirty, disease ridden 
animals but water buffaloes (by definition) must be clean and 
(contagious) disease free.

Given the respective O'Reilly colophons ("MSCE Core Elective Exams in a 
Nutshell" and er.. the Camel Book) what does this all mean?
