A respected captain in the foreign legion was transferred to a remote desert outpost. On his orientation tour, he noticed a very old camel tied out behind the barracks.
He asked the sergeant, "Why is a camel tied to the barracks?"
The sergeant replied, "It's a long way from anywhere, and the men have natural sexual urges, so when they do, uh, we have the camel."
"Well, I suppose if it's good for morale, then I guess it's all right with me."
After he had been stationed at the fort for six long, lonely months, the captain simply couldn't control his sexual angst any longer. He barked to his sergeant, "Bring the camel into my tent."
The sergeant shrugged his shoulders, looked at the other men, and led the camel into the captain's quarters.
Within a few minutes, the captain emerged from his tent, fastening his trousers, almost beaming with pride. "Well, sergeant, I must say that animal's service is certainly worth its keep," he said with pride.
The sergeant replied, "Well, actually, sir, usually the men just use it to ride into town."
