Bedouin Feasts

According to my brother John;

Bedouins have made it into the Guinness Book of World Records for creating the largest item on any menu. This mammoth item is stuffed camel. Chickens are stuffed with rice and hard-boiled eggs, then a lamb is stuffed with the chickens. The skinned, cleaned camel is then stuffed with the lamb, broiled over a charcoal pit and decorated with nuts. Legend has it that this dish (serving 80-100 people) was served at Bedouin wedding feasts.
Nobody is quite sure of the veracity of this story, despite its entrance into the record books.

My guess would be that to be authentic, the chickens should be stuffed with gerbils, which in turn should be stuffed with locusts.
