A Blackadder by any other name

Some fan-art based on one of my favorite British comedy series, Blackadder, about a recurring malcontent/creep, Edmund Blackadder, who through each era of British history tries to backstab and kill his way to becoming King of England.
pictured: (from left to right, though not in order of cunning) The Mini-brained Prince Regent, George, Lord Edmund Blackadder the First, of the court of Elizabeth, Captain E Blackadder, of the Hull 3rd Battalion, Baldrick, a wretchedly stupid dogsbody, Lord Blackadder the time traveller, later King Edmund the third, and The Mad Queen Elizabeth the first.

"The sound of hoof beats 'cross the glade,
Good folk, lock up your son and daughter,
Beware the deadly flashing blade,
Unless you want to end up shorter.
Black Adder, Black Adder, with many an cunning plan.
Black Adder, Black Adder, you horrid little man."
- a popular Anglo-Saxon rhyme

Love this! May I use it for an icon challenge at http://community.livejournal.com/bladdericontest/ ? We would certainly give you all credit for the image :)
