My nomination for “news release with the greatest distance between promise offered in the title and reality offered in the body” goes to Unique Invention Helps Cut Work in Half.
Here I was, thinking “wow, I knew some Islander would crack the fusion/fission thing eventually” and what I get, in return, was a cauliflower “banding aid.”
Not to suggest that if I was in the cauliflower business I wouldn’t welcome such a product. But I thought they were talking about my work!
Wow! If I could find an invention to cut my work in half, I’d buy two!!
I wondered how long it would take to get some variant of this particular “invention” into the Government garage. As I read the release, my sense of suspended reality grew and grew till I found myself wondering if I had missed a few months and we were at April 1. But then these same people tell us about the Charlottetown Smart Community and the ATC.
