“No need for the cannons. Their range is too short.”
“Sir, we have no-”
“And equip the bayonets!”
“Oh for the love of-”
“Onward, men! The city of Azer- Azerbai-”
“Yes, that’s it! Their Persian rugs are for the taking!”
The Georgian army quickly entered the city only to find its streets empty. Thinking that the city had surrendered they made their way to city hall.
“Come on guys! The 1st will be the first to make it to the city square! Get it?”
“Stop with the corny jokes sergeant! They are as bad as you smell!”
“That’s not me! What the- Camels!”
“Those idiots are riding our dinner boys! Get them!”
After cutting thick camel steaks, the Georgian army finally engaged the Persians in battle.
“We can beat them boys! Keep fighting!”
“Wait-where’s the general!”
“He’s right over-I don’t know!”
“Well, if he’s not here we’re not fighting! I’ll like to enjoy my steaks before I die! Retreat!”
“No, the army must fight! Look more camels! More camels means-”
“More steak! Charge!”
Fortunately, the desire for camel steaks kept the Georgians fighting long enough to break the Persian army. The victory gave the Georgians control over Azerbaijan.
