I heard this story from a friend. Someone he worked with announced one day that his brother, who lived in the UK, was going to receive a really big award but it was still a secret. But it was really big. People thought he was going to be on the Honours List at some low level, then speculation centered on a knighthood, then as the days went by he was going to be an earl or viscount. By the end of the week everyone had him pegged to receive a dukedom, because whatever was going to happen to him was going to be really, really big. Finally, on the weekend the press announced he was receiving a Nobel Prize. What a let down.

At least with him there was no confusion what to call him. Don't you have to call your girlfriend's mum something different, now....like Dame Edna? That should make for interesting Christmas parties.
