Well I thought that it was funny...

Our rector (you'd call him president or chancelor in the Anglo-Saxon world, anyway, the chief executive of the university) was made a baron last week!

Every year, around the national holiday, the king announces new members of the nobility. This year our dear rector was among them.

I know one thing, I'm not going to adres him as such during the next boad meeting...or maybe just to annoy him :biggrin:

Since they're usually a pain in the bu++, the name you use is apt. :approve:

More apt than the original latin meaning of "ruler" :biggrin:
