I'm working on a limerick... but it's damned difficult to give equal time to two in 5-line verse. Congrats, meanwhile, both of y'all.
As for you, maverick... YOU should win an award for something... Your contribution was stunning. What do we call that form of poesy?

Jacks and Max, congrats!

Champagne all round - or since this is Oz, I'll make it a barbecue. And Jackie, I'll toast you till you're well done. Max, you're just rare!

I still feel very uncomfortable receiving any plaudits for my effort. The terms of the contest keep pestering me, like Banquo's ghost: "Continuing a regular theme, here is a challenge for those of you who do not speak (predominantly) British/UK English as your first language."
Surely if the IOC can call a 16 year old girl a cheat for taking an NSAID, I should be pilloried with equal ruthlessness and savagery for entering a contest whose rules disbarred me. }8^(

No way, uh uh, no fair, I won't allow it! Max SAID that he
wasn't intending it to be a real entry. Even with that
disclaimer, he still got his award. So he can most certainly accept accolades, darn it! Max, don't you DARE
try to weasel out of this again! Grr.

I have posted a reply to this issue in the main competition thread. The rules were clear and you were a clear winner of the "prize for the fastest entry by a Kiwi". Not only were you the winner but you were also the only competitor! If you are looking for Olympic analogies, you only have to think back to early stages of the swimming where there was an unlikely medalist who had never been in a race before.

On the other hand ...

You raise the issue of drug testing. I think this might be a good idea to incorporate into future competitions!
