They say a picture paints a thousand words.
My best friend, the arch-genius Max Tunguska *, dropped in on Sunday afternoon for a cup of coffee and a cake. As ever, it was great to see him, and it got even better; as we sipped our EolistBlend (TM) espressos and nibbled on a brace of amaretto über-eclairs, Yavin popped by.
[ * Max writes a terrifically loony blog. Click! This week? Scratch and sniff character cards, including the Squiddrel. Go check him out, he's daft.]
It's so rare to get a snap of these two together, and I didn't miss my chance.
Yes, the two brightest minds this side of the badger-built Ernest Borgnine Transatlantic Memorial Bridge. **

The pair were consulted on the recent Higgs Boson discovery. Yavin's crew had dug the perfect circle of the Geneva CERN tunnel without instruments, and Max's groundbreaking work with Quantum Caramel Condensates made him a prime candidate for the hardware; he knocked it up in Shed Four (now the stickiest of five) in his back garden over a long weekend.
When the CERN team made the final breakthrough, with Dr. Tunguska still grumbling that he'd practically had to point their collective experimental noses at one, Yavin was so moved as to award Max the highest honour that can be bestowed upon a non-badger:
The Order Of The Clan.
Max is now an honorary badger.
And as a result, can get all the worms he can eat.
Remind me not to go over for homemade chili.
