Camel Tow: Business Is a "Snatch" for Towing Company With Quirky Name
|Camel Towing business card|
Daily RFT: How did you come up with the name Camel Towing?
Christopher: A buddy of mine from high school and I have been talking about this for ten years. Finally, we were sitting around drinking one night and I said, 'What the hell, I'm going to do it!' Now, in thirteen weeks, I've gone from not having a penny to my name to having one tow truck and now three trucks. I'm just a dumb ass who worked as a teamster truck driver for 25 years until I got hurt on the job three years ago. I don't know why other people haven't come up with this idea. They're just too ball-less to do it, I guess.
So it takes balls to be a Camel Tow?

Do you offer any discounts?
We already offer the cheapest rates in town -- $45 hookup fee and $3 a mile. But I'm thinking of running a promotion for ladies where I give them a ten percent discount if they show me their camel toe. But be careful ladies. If you've got a moose-knuckle, I charge a 25 percent surcharge.
That's a fat girl with a camel toe. No one wants to see that!
And you'll make the call?
My god, yes. The worst thing that could happen is I drive around town and have pretty ladies show me their cooch. What the hell? Hey, dude, I'm a sick fuck. I don't care. If you want to be a bear, be a grizzly. Fuck it. Go for it. We also offer another special.
Uhm, what's that?
