When Queen Latifah was butchering America the Beautiful on Sunday, the kids at our party were being loud. So I told them to quiet down and show some respect, this woman is a queen.

Then I spent the better half of the coin toss wondering who appointed her as such. I figured she did.

So with that respect, I now ask to be called Doctor God Emperor Bad-Ass X. Ravenscroft, Esq.

Old hat.

Besides I'm not limiting myself to this continent, planet or plane of existence.

Also, as my first decree; play a game and treat yourself to something nice today.

Yes, and when spoken it must be projected louder than normal speak and quieter than shouting. Also, you have to say it like you think Kaiser Wilhelm would say it. Or at least like Baron Bomburst.

This kind of reminds me of when I was in Corps school in the navy. We had this guy in our class that was from somewhere in Africa--I don't remember where though. He had this deep booming voice and kind of a French accent. Anyways, he claimed that in his tribe back in Africa that he was a prince. He would go into great detail describing customs and rituals and so forth. He had my convinced, but a lot of the other guys liked to give him a hard time about it. I figured what the hell, I'll call him Prince. I also told him that my ancestors were Dukes in Scotland. (On a side note I have seen our family tree that goes back to about late 1500's and at one time the family was in Scotland, and we have a coat of arms, but thats about the extent of it, I'm quite certain we weren't Dukes). Anyways, he apparently bought it and was glad to have someone else around that was royalty. Whenever I'd see him in the barracks he'd boom, "Ahhh, Duke. How are you doing?" with that accented voice. "Very well your Highnes..."

I was always impressed with the title: Supreme Allied Commander



You'd be hard-pressed to find a better sounding one without being royalty.

Quote:
At manufacturing company W.L. Gore & Associates, the unconventional workplace culture has become nearly as legendary as the company’s weather-resistant Gore-Tex synthetic fabric is ubiquitous.

There is the story of the employee who told company founder Bill Gore that she had to attend an outside meeting where hosts would expect her to have a job title--a custom banished by Gore, who believed that such distinctions stifled freedom, communication and creativity. He jokingly suggested that she call herself "supreme commander." The employee reportedly liked it so much she had business cards printed with that inscription.

Years after I got hired, my employer decided I needed a job title, and since the HR manager has no clue what I actually do, she asked for a suggestion.

I suggested 'Overlord'.

They didn't bite.

The title of this thread is much more amusing if you read the second l as an i.

I'll address you as you wish, if you address me as:

The Right Reverend Honorable Doctor Lord Sir Lt. Bocephus James Holland IV, PhD MD DDS RN CNM ACE ASE OBE A+ MCSE Esq. (Notary)

And that's Leftenant, not Lieutenant. It's from my RAF days.

As I recall (which means it's too good to Google and possibly have to correct) some years ago Viscount Nelson, decended from the victor of Trafalgar, died and the next nearest descendent became the new Lord Nelson. Now the Nelsons were never rich, and hadn't got richer over the years, so the new Lord Nelson was a sergeant (of police).

Incidentally don't you mean Leftenant not Lootenant. Don't let them have the spelling unchallenged.
