  • Music with Fiddlesticks
  • The Asparamancer (Jemima Packington, is the world’s first and only Asparamancer, meaning she predicts the future using nothing more then a handful of asparagus spears tossed into the air, interpreting how they land)
  • Bobbby the Asparahorse
  • And not forgetting - Gus!
