FACADE... ( but i know not how many of these there might have been in Titipu)

Not a bad guess, since SUFFIX ought to be the singular form of the plural noun SUFFICES. But no.

Endy got it. The Town of Titipu. "The benefit that I'd DIFFUSE" etc. is from G&S's Mikado. And Pooh-Bah is a title that you have gained and them outgrown if you've become a Carpal Tunnel on the Board. And "Sing Boo to you, Pooh-pooh to you" is from another G&S operetta, Patience. (I don't blame you if you're losing yours by now...).

But, but, the Pooh Bear is English and English English as a rule retains the "e" when a sufefix is added. So please don't argue and give me credit for being a good sport.
Just change the "D" to "X" and apologise and I will forgive you. frown

DIFFUSE

Will D-->X and E-->S suffice to FIX the FUSS ?
