Make Up a Title For Yourself

Someone here asked me for my official title. My
smart-arse response was:

High Grand Poobah, Chief Exchequer
of the Western Region, Ex Officio
Cultural Resources Program Manager.
Cultural Attache to the Isle of Mann
by request of His Majesty RVZ (HMRVZ).
Appointee to the burrito wagon. Lord of
everything else.


I find titles of nobility both funny and charming.
A sign of class oppression but also silly. The Spanish
really seem to like long titles and names. None in particular
come to mind but they like the "y" thing and other
oddities. CF Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca.
