Agreed. It would make a great title for a Twilight Zone episode, I think.

De rien! C'est simplement la vérité

Dunno about you, but I'm a big fan of google translate... ;p

My French is just about up to the task, but I'm still working on that Latin translation... ;-)

Thanks Jon, for organising a splendid event. I consider myself well and truly puddled!

My commiserations go to my fellow finalists in what turned out to be an exceedingly close contest. My own favourite came joint second. (And yes, I did vote for it!)

I shall now celebrate in the customary fashion...

As Peadar said, a worthy winner.

Congratulations, Vaughan :)

That year of Latin I took at school in England wasn't totally wasted :)
