I remember a joke version from x decades ago, or almost remember it: I
can't recall the first name involved. Say it was Anna. "Anna" Head was
(and maybe still is) THE premier B'way costume designer and regularly
swept the awards in that category. Somewhere there was the line
        "Anna" Head gives great costume.
 Obviously not productive, but there it was.
