Dr Johannes Blofli MLC JSPC research fellow, faculty of human engineering, Hiroshima
"Picture, if you will, a crisp, early summer morning in Hiroshima. I had just delivered a triumphant speech to a top secret United Nations assembly at which it was my solemn duty to expose the entire city of Paris as a fake - and a rather bad fake at that. I must say, the French took it rather well considering. But barely had the applause subsided when I was dragged off stage by Barnaby - my faithful assistant. What happened next will remain clamped to my frontal node for the remainder of my mortal days. From a glistening, translucent sack that gave off a faint, sweet smell of (I think) pineapple, Barnaby produced an object so exquisite that at first I thought he had mischievously slipped me another one of his famous morphine enemas. But this was no mere psychotropic episode. This was history! Before me was an item so mythic, so sublime, that the angels might have fashioned it from snow clouds. Indeed, when Barnaby placed this heavenly relic upon his head and yelled "Yes Johannes, it really is the Great Birdy Birdy Funny Ha Ha Hat of Dis'nay!" I knew for certain that we had at last uncovered the Holy Grail of archaeology. And to think Barnaby found it in a rustic metal vessel inhabited by small, flying beasties."
