Steamed Kau



Dume: Well, Vakama, I made it... despite your directions.


Vakama: Ah, Turaga Dume! Welcome! I hope you're prepared for some unforgettable Kanohi!


Dume: Yeah...


Vakama: Oh Great Beings, my masks are ruined! But what if... I were to purchase someone else's masks and disguise them as my own crafting? Oh ho ho ho ho... magnificently Makutaish, Vakama!


Dume: Vakama!


Vakama: Turaga, I was just, uh... just stretching my calves on the windowsill. Isometric exercise! Care to join me?


Dume: Why is there smoke coming out of your forge, Vakama?


Vakama: Uhh... no! That isn't smoke. It's steam. Steam from the steamed Hau I'm making! Mmm... steamed Hau!


Vakama: Turaga, I hope you're ready for mindblowing Kaukau!


Dume: I thought you were making steamed Hau.


Vakama: D'oh, no. I said steamed Kau! That's what I call Kaukau!


Dume: You call Kaukau "steamed Kau?"


Vakama: Yes. It's a regional dialect!


Dume: Uh-huh... uh, what region?


Vakama: Uhh... Metru Nui?


Dume: Really? Well, I'm from Ta-Metru, and I've never heard anyone use the phrase "steamed Kau."


Vakama: Oh, not in Ta-Metru, no. It's a Ga-Metru expression.


Dume: I see. You know, these Kaukau are quite similar to the ones they have at Nuhrii's forge.


Vakama: Oh ho ho ho... no, patented Vakama masks. Old crafting recipe.


Dume: For steamed Kau?


Vakama: Yes.


Dume: Yes, and you call them "steamed Kau" despite the fact they are obviously injection moulded.


Vakama: Ye- hey- you know, the- one thing I should- excuse me for one second.


Dume: Of course.


Vakama: Well, that was wonderful. A good time was had by all, I'm pooped.


Dume: Yes, I should be- Great Spirit, what is happening in there!?


Vakama: The Red Star?


Dume: The Red Star!? At this time of year, at this time of day, in this part of the city, localized entirely within your forge!?


Vakama: Yes!


Dume: May I see it?


Vakama: No.


Brander: Vakama, the forge is on fire!


Vakama: No, Brander—it's just the Red Star!


Dume: Well, Vakama, you are an odd fellow, but I must say... you steam a good Kau.
