Jay,

The problem is... my two Petros guitars each have a unique voice... both of them are amazing. I don't play as much as I used to... so I wouldn't mind selling the more expensive of the two. But my wife loves the sound of both guitars.

Tough call. Go with the wife, guitars don't love you back. I've never heard of guitars having a "voice" before, but that's a very good description.

I think the TF spelled "beknighted" wrong, if that's even a word. Can I get a judgement here?

I judge you GUILTY of tempting the TF. Your sentence is.... to have your title mutilated regularly and forever.

I just went to dictionary.com, typed in "beknighted" and it came back with "benighted" no definition then said "More suggestions: bigoted"

I then went to google, typed in "beknighted" and it came back with Did you mean "benighted" which had a link to "Urban Dictionary (external link)"

( Maybe beknighted is a kinder way of saying beheaded? )

"Benighted" is indeed a word. It well describes anyone who doesn't know better than to tease the local bestower of epithets.

I don't think a knighthood is sufficient reward for a lifetime of good work, I think he should be ennobled. "Lord Moose of Muffinland" has quite a ring about it I think.

Really, even rock stars get knighted these days. Although Muffinland seems a bit blasé. Maybe Lord Moose of Moose Mosque Muffinland. Although that does sound like a rock band kind of. Heavy Metal I would think.:lol:

Dave I had considered a title such as you suggest, but found the alliteration too much, I think my simpler title is more appropriate on many levels.

If he is invested by our Queen at Buckingham Palace (need to take out British Citizenship though Moose) I'd love to see Her Majesty's reaction if the one guest the Moose can bring is one of his curvier Muffins!

The Queen has already met the High Muffin herself. I'm sure she'll take anyone I introduce her to in stride.

You are correct, ma'm. However, after looking up the definition, I have decided that it does not apply, and should be replaced by "knighted."

I knew I liked you for a reason. If I'm in need of a squire, may I call you?

If you're going to be working for his, you can call him "Sire" - except when guests are present.
