    Kim is the funniest person I know on this website. If Kumarmani Mahakul can bestow titles, then so can I.
    I hereby bestow upon Kim the title of
    The Clown Prince of Poem Hunter.

    Kumarmani Mahakul bestowed the title of Heavenly Fortune on me. How he came up with that, I'll never know. If I did have a fortune, that would be heavenly!
