Nominative determination alert.
James, Blackwater, UK

"She can wear a tiara with ease and she doesn't look vulgar". Surely, you meant a crown?
R.G, Watford, Herts

Can we please have a moratorium on nominative determinism? We get it. Some, in fact quite a lot of, people have names that fit what they do. Let's move on. See also: letters that end with coat getting or hilarious variations thereon. Call me a party pooper if you will.
Richard, Aberdeen, UK

Tim McMahon, Martos/Spain

Nigel, Newbury
