Was there? Do provide a reference (if you can). I suspect it is an exercise of your prolific imagination. Almost Dali-esque, one might term it.

For this is surely the first I've ever heard about it! (Of course, I must check with Mr Greeno about it).

Apart from this "budding partnership", have you been seeing many other imaginary beings, beauties and beasties around you these days? Any pink elephants, perchance?

As to the 'leveraging of common sense', I would certainly seek to do that - but not by invention of the RH kind as instanced above.
