Hey, Max, congratulations on achieving POOH-BAHism. When was the last time an elder statesman hailed from Hawkes Bay, huh?

Now, one of you is clearly Octavianus. And one Caesar. Oh, and the other one over there must be Antonius. But which is which?

The idiot also known as Capfka ...

Thanks, CK. Uneasy lies the head of the clown, I can tell you.

Congrats on your achievement, Max (done with a minimal amount of "cheating," I might add )

Now, one of you was clearly born great. And one achieved greatness. Oh, and the other one over there must have had greatness thrust upon theirself. But which is which?

My sweet Max,

I am thrilled! You are the most lovable Pooh-Bah there
could ever be. Congratulations, Dude!

or, more appropriately perhaps, the choice is between First Lord of the Admiralty, Lord Chamberlain, Attorney-General, Chancellor of the Exchequer, Privy Purse, or Private Secretary -- so there's still room for a further three Pooh-Bahs before we have to consider cloning!

and what's the Japanese word for "troika"?

as pooh-bah i, I'd select Chancellor of the Privy (if I had a choice).

Congraduations indeed, M'Lud Pooh-Bah the thrid.

And paulb, in answer to what's the Japanese word for "troika"? . There is no Japanese word for troika; the country's not big enough to fit three horses across on any one road.

Sanjin might work for triumvir.

Max !
Please forgive the delay in my response to the news!
It took me awhile to find the notice of your elevation - I had to go down to the cellar, with a torch, (this was complicated because) the stairs were gone .. I eventually found it on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying Beware of the Leopard

Congratulation! Douglas would be proud!

The Poohs are really starting to pile up. Must be the season.

I would also like to add to the accolades. Congratulations!Is the crown very heavy?
I will always remember you as the one who introduced me to colors. You are surely one of my admired AWADers.
