Who amongst us, having been thus far slighted by Emperor, Monarch, Sovereign, Pasha, or Czar, feels that the hour-- nay, the moment-- has arrived when one should be duly accorded the accolade of knighthood?
I refer not to the assumed wearing of some ersatz trinket pendant from a tawdry ribbon around one's neck-- a veritable social hangman's noose if ever there was one -- but to the bladed accolade that accompanies one's reception into a confraternity of like-minded gentlemen possessed of those certain chivalric virtues which pass unheralded by today's conformist classes.
Gentlemen, I ask: Who amongst you will answer the call to the chivalric crusade?
All you need to do is to purchase an estate with an attached landed title. Quite simple, actually. It might even come complete with a seat in the House of Lords.
My Battle axe and Helm! My musket at your service Sir!!
