VALID, obviously, since there were no previous rules.

The rule is witty and uses the theme well; it includes numerous
restrictions, but still leaves open plenty of room for further rules.  I
would give it a 3, but since it is the first rule, and did not have to
obey an previously existing restrictions, I will lower that to 2.5.
So, 2.5 Style points for 194:1

            Your Judge, Jesse Weinstein
