No harm can come from questioning. "Best" case scenerio: You prove it right without relying on the fact that it is widely accepted. Argument strengthened. "Worst" case scenerio: You realize you might have been wrong. The new answer might or might not be what you want to hear, but it beats defending yourself with bullshit.

RJ Reynolds decided to name them "Camels" to give them an exotic mystique. It was spelled Kamel, I think. They took a photo of Old Joe, a Barnum & Bailey camel for the package design. It was then prepared by a Richmond lithography firm.

After ATC's breakup, another tobacco leader, R. J. Reynolds, swore that he would one-up Duke's success, saying, "Now watch me give him hell." Capitalizing on the attraction of Turkish cigarettes and the rage for things Egyptian, his advertisements announcing the new Camel cigarettes saturated the market for months before stores saw any product. The pack features a simple desert scene, with its namesake standing in front of two pyramids and an oasis. Restrained typography spells out the brand. There's not that much going on, yet the design somehow conveys a distinctive personality. In part, this is due to accident: the irritable camel being used as a model expressed its disdain just as the shutter clicked to take its portrait. In part, it's also due to the eye catchingly clean composition. The brand would become the first American standard, winning Camels a seemingly eternal share of the market.

Tom Robbins wrote an entire book with Camel cigs in mind. He has a fascination with pyramid power and redheads. Read "Still Life with Woodpecker" if interested about it. Great book.

Camels were first called dromedaries, then went to Dromes, then to Camel. The Kamel name is owned by RJ reynold but if you rad the package it says something like "established in 1932, re-established in 1995". So Kamels are a completly independant company i think within the RJ Reynolds corporation. I have never seen anything but them as "reds".
Since I am a Camel smoker (doesnt sound right) I found some nicotine chart for all their cigarettes. I thought it was funny that Turkish Golds, Filters, and Lights are all withing 1% point of each other and the Ultra Lights only drop 3-4% after that. I didnt pay attention to any of the flavors, cause those blow.

I would be interested to see this chart, I guess I could google it but I am just too damned lazy.
