    The "name a star after someone" thread reminded me of this special offer:

    Yay! Everyone becomes royalty and then no one is special!

    It probably wouldn't work if you're an American though... Americans have no former history with socially accepted royalty (although our own version of super-CEOs tend to be our notion of the elite) and they would probably be subsequently beaten up (imagine a lord/baron with an distinct American accent).

    Hmm... can't one just legally change their first name to "Lord" to bypass this mess altogether and save money?

    That doesn't seem logical. People with titles of "Lord" like to live rich, thus employing those types of people would be prohibitively expensive.

    Hmm...I'm trying to decide which I'd prefer, Lady Moonbear or Princess Moonbear? I considered Queen Moonbear, but that just didn't have the right ring to it. I sort of fancy the idea of men bowing down before me, kissing the back of my hand and addressing me as M'Lady. :biggrin:

    I like Princess Moonbear a bit more.

    Why is it the man pushing this only calls himself Steven Scott sans Regal Title? Perhaps he is only playing the fool to catch the wise elitist wannabees. If you look closely at his photo you can see he has been laughing so hard over all this he nearly soiled himself. :tongue2:

    Too busy making a Royal Killing to take time, I would venture.

    I just like the idea of being able to say OFF WITH HIS HEAD! And then having my faithful army carry out my commands.
    No wait, I guess that doesn't come with the title.
    shoot!

    By far the easiest way to get yourself such a title is to legally change your first name to "Duke" or "Baron" etc, so that people would have to address you as such.

    Tsu says that I'm a royal pain the butt. Does that count as royalty?

    Yes it does, butt only in certain areas... :rofl:

We shall ride in defense of your holdings and shall slay any challengers to your honour and blessed name, fair princess. Your faithful servant, Sir Artman the Elder of Jersey (New).
