"Caramba! The cable car bell ringing contest has already begun," called Bingo to Bubba.
"It looks like Charlie's turn!" Bubba clamored.
The Byrd siblings circled to the right, luckily finding an air current to coast quickly to Union Square.
Clang! Clang-clang-clang! Clang-ity, clang clang, clang clang! Clllllaaaaangggg! Clang!
The crowd roared their approval.
Charlie the Camel blushed a crimson red, as he clip-clopped down the cemented sidewalk to the contestants' corner.
"That was brilliantly cacophonous, Charlie!" exclaimed Bingo as she landed on his right shoulder.
"Awesome, Dude!" said Bubba. "That was mighty crisp and clear. We could hear it from above the Courtyard Hotel."
"Thank you, thank you," said Charlie, coyly covering his face with the charming beret that Agathe the Aardvark sent him from France. Bonne chance, mon ami, she wrote.
Minutes later the winners of the annual San Francisco Cable Car Bell-Ringing Contest were announced. Charlie was not crowned the champ. He was, however, given a special award for being the first Camelus Bactrianus to enter the competition.
Three cheers for Charlie!
