Just about every traditional song in my repertoire has the randy old bugger exercising his right.

Or his wife exercising her right ish...

Sometimes with seven gypsies.

Good job they didn't have Facebook really. Let alone YouTube.

Back to the honours system.. It plays second fiddle to academic achievement you'll be pleased to hear. Many a Prof. Sir or Prof. Dame, but never Sir Prof. Etc.

However, it does knock Dr out of the arena, as does Prof.

Perhaps best to be offered a suffix gong such as OBE, CBE etc just to be safe if you are clever.
