The following story was related in a round-table Kahuna scrum, during a recent Covid spatially-distanced-virtual get-together:

.....Two Sheiks were walking along a newly bricked entrance to a newly-built desert oasis, when one caught sight of a strange, gyrating figure in full burkha garb, but with a strange, glowing white structure appearing slightly above it, as if a distant halo hovered near.

"Is it an angel?", asked one sheik, wonderingly.

"No, it's a strange Canadian woman doing new greenhouse specs in a hardhat,", said the other.

"Is she dancing?" said one, concerned. "It's quite hot out here. Maybe she needs some hydrating meds. What do you know of her?"

"Well...." said the first, dryly. "She's definitely not an omelette."


Recommendations followed immediately for the Sheik to be nominated for this year's prize. They just have to figure out how to invent it without anyone noticing.
