A pantomime dromedary, in a sufficiently unionised theatre, is a creature of Equity.[2] Note capitalisation, so save you confusing it with a creature of equity like a constructive trust.

If you try to make a dromedary out of pâpier-maché and an old curtain, ask two people you found in a job centre in Bratislava to stand in it so they can’t see what each other are doing let alone where they are going, then you have an excellent metaphor for the conventional offshoring strategy of a modern multinational organisation.
