Apparently Lord Aelfgar either didn't see or chose to ignore His Majesty's
Standard Disclaimer at the end of His missive. No poo-poo for the Poobah.

And you were right.

Your Majesty, if I may, as one of Your Barons, suggest that Lord Alefgar,
being very fond of the trappings of Court, is really trying to suck up
to You here for yet another Absurd Award (the OUB and the OUB, respectively).
Therefore it would certainly be within Your Right to think up something
exceedingly supercilious (say that three times real fast...I know, that,
that, that....sheesh) with which to burden.....I mean reward Lord Aelfgar
for so magnanimously bringing to your attention the Proper and Correct 
Usage<tm> of the title Grand (copyright 1997, Muckety Mucks, Inc.).
