Sorry I took so long to decide, but there's a lot of good stuff here, so it wasn't easy!
I'll start with the honorable mentions:
Kajun Firefly: "Captain Palindrome" - great sidekick idea
lemur68: "Hell? Eh" and " 'S Satan at ass"
fpd: "Robot mum Tobor", "Dog God", "Soap Opera Recaps" - in the words of Bill Murray in "Tootsie", "that is one nutty hospital!"
fuzzyman: "Call me Sidney"
andydougan: "He won a Toyota now, eh?"
And now, the moment for which you've all been waiting ever-so-patiently...
The winner is ...
for his combination of "Writer's block" for the nice palindrome pun, and "ABBA brainstorming session" for the clever rule bender and Swedish flag background!
And thanks, everyone, for your efforts!
