Conversation between Dad and C this morning:

Dad: "C, did you know that King Henry VIII was called "Henry the Eighth, by the Grace of God, King of England, France and Ireland, Defender of the Faith and of the Church of England and also of Ireland in Earth Supreme Head"?

C: "Wow. Why did he have to use so many words to describe himself?"

Dad: "I don't know. Probably to match his ego."

C: "What's an ego?"

Dad: "An ego is what you think of yourself. Someone who thinks they are better than everyone else can be said to have a large ego."

C: "Oh. You mean like the KKK? They think the white race is better than everyone else."

Dad: "Huh?"
