Big thumbs up and congrats to Rick and Jack for their outstanding Js. Let's analyse the medal winners for this letter:

Gold: Outstanding syllable matching gigglefest to Queen's most theatrical moment

Silver: Stream of consciousness brilliance to the Beatles' most inpenetrable psych-out

Bronze: A song about a dog that fetches booze to...The Monkees? How did I even get a 3rd?   http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/03/conf.gif
