Each rabbit would show respect to me, the chipmunks genuflect to me

I think the slang use of 'czar' as shorthand for bureaucrat-in-charge-of-whatever works significantly less well when using the alternate Anglicization 'tsar.' On the other hand, the BBC has just provided me with the momentary mental image, amusingly absurd, of an anthropomorphic red squirrel incarnation of Nicholas II. You win this round, my thrice-damned foe. (Via Fark.)
