[The Teutonic Order, or the Little Teutonic Knights, as they are commonly
known, tend to be centered around (Fayetteville?  Wilmington?  Can't
remember) and they're a household, whatever their name actually is.  I
don't know, and everybody I know has always just called them "The Little
Teutonic Knights" even though they obviously aren't knights.  The
joke/reason they're called the LTK's is because most of them are short,
except for Jonas, who lives in the Hickory area anyway.  I think the word
"Knights" was added because "The Little Teutonics" didn't quite cut it,
although I have heard just The Little Teutonics before.

There, that ought to confuse the issue even more...
