My very own aristocratic title

From Fr. Dwight at GKupsidedown.
I've always wanted an aristocratic title, although this one doesn't roll off the tongue that easily.
And what the heck the Defenestrated mean?
It sounds awfully painful.

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:
The Right Reverend Lord Andrew the Defenestrated of Lardle St Earache
Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title

Thanks Vernon,

Then it is as painful as it sounds.
No wonder I'm from Lardle St. Earache =)Earache indeed.

Thanks anonymous. I'm starting to get a little alarmed about being defenestrated.

Perhaps I'll go for von Hohenfall as one of the Prague defenestratees did?
