*SIR* Eddie Kramer...???
« on: April 28, 2010, 10:28:22 am »

I'm rather puzzled by this Prosoundweb page:

 http://www.prosoundweb.com/article/adk_endorsed_by_engineer_ sir_eddie_kramer/

I was under the impression that -apart from under only extremely rare circumstances- it would not possible for a South African-born individual to use the title 'Sir' in the united Kingdom... -And South Africa did not recognize dual-nationality prior to 2004.

For comparison, Rudy Giuliani received an honorary knighthood from the queen, but -as a non-British subject from birth- is forbidden from going by the title 'Sir'.

-So I'm confused as to how Eddie is permitted to use the title. -It'can't be legitimate, surely?

He seems the type that may take license with a license.

I'm equally puzzled by Sir Mix-a-Lot's misuse of the title.

Keith,


next time I am having tea with her royal maj I will wait 'til she takes a sip and mention that I was listening to an album produced by SIR Eddie Kramer.

Her reaction will tell us what we need to know.

Why?

When I was a kid I liked the idea of ESQ after my name - until I found out what it meant.

As an ardent lover of classic Warner Brother's cartoons, I'm partial to Sir Loin of Beef and Sir Osis of Liver.  Laughing  Laughing  Laughing

The collective noun...?

A flock of sheep, a herd of cattle, a coven of witches, a murder of crows, a parliament of owls, a pride of lions, a sword of mallards...

A fist of hams, perhaps!

(well, it fits in my case!!!)
