Unto Alfredo el Bufon does Eldred send greetings and pasta!
Thank you for keeping it all in perspective. What else is a fool for?
Come over here and have a mug of mead with Tibor and myself....
Just don't spill any with your capering.... 8^)
%If I saw someone flying a banner of my arms, as that Eastern Peer
%recently did, I think I'd handle it something like this:
%"Did you make this banner?"
%"Well, it's really very, very nice workmanship. I must say
%I'm touched. Is it a gift for me, or may I offer you something
%for the time and materials?"
% "No, this isn't for you at all. It's my banner. Everyone
% in my barony associates this symbol with me."
%"Incorrectly. Why don't you think up some other symbol for
%yourself and make a new banner. In the meantime, I'd be happy
%take this one of your hands for you."
% "No, I'm going to keep this banner. As I said, everybody
% who knows me knows this banner."
%"Well, you certainly have every right to fly my arms as your
%banner, and there's nothing I can do to stop you, but there's
%one thing you will never be able to do: You'll never get this
%registered with the College of Arms of the SCA, Inc."
% "I don't want to get it registered."
%"That's clear enough. But even if you wanted to, you CAN'T.
%Not ever. Not for a million dollars. Not with all the kings
%horsemen and all his foot soldiers. Never! So there."
