Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
I was at the University with British chap named Andrew Tesing-Ryde. His family was some sort of minor nobility, but like so many others now had only dreams of past glory. Andy (who had gone to someplace like Oxbridge or Camford for his AB) was proud of his family's history, of course (one of his great-grandmothers had some connection with Edward V) but he also knew that he had to do his own part to continue the Family Honour. He was a good student, studying physical chemistry and that's NOT an easy road by any means. But Andy seemed to slip more and more into The Past, even going so far as to have his family coat of arms tattooed on his left shoulder.
You can imagine my dismay when one day I read that he'd been arrested for molesting women in the University Park! Apparently he'd snapped and ran through the Park kissing every woman he saw, including the policewoman who'd arrested him.
At the hearing he wore the blazer with his family's coat of arms on the pocket and when the judge asked him what in the heck he thought he was doing, Andy simply replied, "Your honour, A. Tesing-Ryde sifts all lips."
