I have to say that this made me larff like a drain.

Thank you.

You are too kind. I can let you have an MBE for £80.
Betty, I can do you one for £60 OK.
Whenever I face some awful festive-related duty over the next few weeks I'm going to think of the Mark Phillips being melted down for fertiliser to take my mind off it all.

I don't think I could face being an MBE. Even if there are perks to having the title, they're not the sort of perks I would want to have anyway.
Tom - you and your scummy capitalist ways, trying to undercut ...

I am a woman of principle, and a republican to boot.

I would never pay more than £20 for an MBE.
Betty, I readily admit I was asking well over the odds for that MBE, but cut me some slack, a guy's got to make a buck where he can these days.
Betty - that was priceless, the image of Tim saluting anyone who walks past will bring a smile to my lips over the next few days. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
Tom - no hard feelings. Besides, I managed to haggle someone down to £3.25 for an OBE on e-Bay.

Jane - I always try to believe that Vicus's posts about the Royals are completely true. I fear the reality might be a lot more dull.
