Very nice modest variant, very clever name. And rather than pardon the pun, I salute it; we need more humor here [okay, puns may not be humor, but...]. Being an iconoclast and a grouchy old man, I don't believe in giving modest variants a rating higher than 'good', but this is such a fine, offbeat idea that I have to give it at least a 'good+'. And the rules are well-written. Congratulations, Charles, on an excellent little conceit.
