Here's a Monday poser for you: qu'est-ce-que c'est?

Sometimes, I see something on the wires that begs the question: What in Satan's overflowing laundry basket is this? So, campers, let's go.

1. An unused prop from the credits of Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic.

2. A prototype hairdryer for hirsute fish.

3. A novel way of making kids get the right amount of Omega 3.

4. The latest musical instrument from Moog.

5. N.P.I.*

It's actually a conceptual health-slash-art-slash-who knows piece by Will Carey. Going by the name of Gifted — sorry, make that lower-case g: gifted — that attempts to "shape the future by engaging with the generation who will be filled with such scenarios and decision." Sorry?

Let me try again. "It raises questions about how children could use their fantasies and dreams to imagine an alternative genetic future." You're saying that this little girl's fantasy runs to blowing a fish backwards? Oh, come ON, as GOB might say. All this kid wants to do is shrink herself down to the size of a postage stamp and become Goldfish Rider, sea detective extraordinaire. And did I mention that she's the most beautiful lady-cop (and secret princess) ever to grace the ocean floor? Hmm, weird of me to leave that out.

*It's Spanish. And rude.
