I'm not sure but Schwarzenegger sounds like one of those to me.

Hmmmm. I thought that Schwartzenegger meant black plowman, per The Arnold.

During a top-secret meeting of the Cabal of Pooh-Bahs....

I know you are sworn not to reveal much, Max, but please tell the plebes a little of what y'all do at these meetings! And is there a secret handshake? When we get elevated, do we get secret decoder rings, and baseball [delicate cough] caps with 42 stitched on them?

Yes, is it one of those " 'Scuse the warts!" jobbies? Reveal all!

Max Quordlepleen>>>>
The idea for a thread soliciting such pleonasms was proposed, and here it is. Does anyone have any other "pleonastic" names to offer?


MaxQ, I am still not sure if I got the idea right of the word "neoplastic" so please let me know if Jasmine Flores (Jasmine is a flower and Flores is Spanish for flowers) is one of those names. Just so I get the concept right.
