Entitlement

Having virtually visited my recently titled friend Don, I sought the Philomath of Fishbourne Sneething for advice.

Is it really so great to have a title, I asked the Very Lady R the P of FS?

She lowered her demitasse and sighed disappointedly. If you must ask, she admonished me, you probably don't deserve a title.

I excused myself and walked out along her lane in the direction of Marble Arch. I gave the matter two minutes' thought. Really, I concluded, except for most OBE's and knighthoods, titles aren't usually deserved. Lords and Ladies are usually just born into some entitled family. So what's the big deal about deserving a title? Sorry, Sneeth Sister, I did the cheap thing, and grabbed myself a title as though it were a one-dollar bra on Wing On Lane.

The virtual land grab:

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:
Lady Madame Seraya the Subservient of Bumswick by the Hole
Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title

Hmmm... Kind of reminds me of my Chinese name, Fok Wan-Lei. Lesson of the day: stick with the culture and class of your birth.
