I’d never even heard of this chap “Ken” before today. I happened upon his twitter page by chance, & felt compelled to click PURELY because of his very impressive sounding name. I mean, who doesn’t wanna know a fellow w/a name like SIR KEN ROBINSON? Having checked him out, I’m duly impressed, & have decided to change MY name to… SIR MARY BIRDSONG
Oh, Mr. “Sir” Ken Robinson (if that’s your real name), I SEE your Sir Ken Robinson, and I raise you a third.
Still, names can be misleading. I had a brother named DONALD EDWARD BIRDSONG, THE 3RD. Impressive, right? Right. Well, he was a truck driver. Family called him Bubba. Still, he was smart enough to write his full name (including the “third” bit) on job applications, letters, & forms of all kinds. Why? Because they’d call him in just to meet the man behind that incredibly impressive sounding epithet. So, maybe he WAS impressive after all.
