Lady Binki

Esmerelda P. Binki, wife of the legendary sufi master and acclaimed dervish, His Holiness The Bahbra Binki, was herself quite famous in certain circles. She not only started the first all-female chapter of the Whirling Dervishes in 1894, but was also recognized by the Anti-gravitational Society for her ability to levitate to such extreme heights as to be barely visible to the naked eye. Madame Binki was also terribly fond of carrots. Upon her death in 1911, six acres of the Binki estate were designated as the Lady Binki Memorial Carrot Farm and Educational Center, and to this day some of the world's finest carrots can be found growing there.
