It could well be a deliberate pun on someone's part somewhere in the oral
or written tradition.
Or it could be intentional. [On a less serious note:] After all, how do
you get a camel through the eye of a needle? By first putting it through a
meat grinder (or food processor) and straining it through the needle bit by
bit. How's that for a starting point for a fire-and-brimstone sermon on
the evils of wealth? ;-)
I apologize if I have offended any animal rights people.
