When you are granted a wish by a genie, and instead of wishing for wealth, women, or power. You wish for a carrot.

In my experiences, there is something better to wish for than a carrot...

wish for a wand of polymorph, and polypile (zap it at a row of 5 stacks of 5 junk items each), you are very likely to obtain several carrots that way, and you also gain perception from zapping the wand itself.

Me? Normal ^^ but i think kaethos says that they were originally using donkeys to carry their bananas but then someone dropped a magical bomb which mutated all the donkeys and so now they're using levitating ostriches instead
