I think I'd turn it down but I'd say no thank you.
I'd probably take one if she turned up at my door, but I can't be bothered travelling for it.
But I'd let her buy me a pint.
surname on things like WeGotTickets. It would be fun to say your an MBE outloud when you're at The Lexington.
you're* and not your. (Sorry)
but my mum would kill me, she loves the Queen.
you look bad either way though don't you. i hope i don't get offered one
it must have its perks
what are the drawbacks?
in that case I'd have to Falcon Punch old Liz and roundhouse kick Phil to the ground
I can get away with that if I have letters after my name right?
i don't think you can turn a nobel down? you can refuse the money but the prize will still be in your name (i think), like JP Sartre
What kind of needy belm wouldn't?
pretty embarrassing to accept one IMO
my dad has one, i'd like to get a better one
Imagine having some title referencing the British Empire after your name, I'm embarrassed for the people who've accepted one.
Enjoy your miserable guilt soaked existence then
and if she rejected it, I'd tell her to fuck off, then.
I'd definitely publically have a laugh at their silly little prizes for their imaginary empire, and request that Phil gets on his knees and shines my shoes instead.
it would be tempting to try and have a proper conversation with Liz, tho. I'd take it on the grounds that I could address her by her first name and have a cup of tea and a chat. maybe ask her if she really wants Andy Murray to win Wimbledon.
i'd accept it. It would make my mum really happy
got a room full of battered old drum machines and sequencers. samples her own public speeches, takes loads of ketamine and weirds out. starts picking her corgies up and twirling them around like furry batons.
Reckon I'd never stop ejaculating if I won that
look who won it in 1996
Is it because he can't stop ejaculating?
Reckon I'd never stop...etc.
I'd squeal and say yes.
and my dad.
Though to be fair, I'm neither pro nor anti royals so I couldn't massively care less. I just kinda think it would be cool really.
so yeah I probably would. Not sure when I'm supposed to be getting mine though.
So, what do you think?
I'm a muthafucking renegade.
(Thinly veiled I was invited to a royal garden party post).
Get a gig selling aftershave in a different set of toilets?
Get your facts rite!
and pretend to wash your hands, but you're accosted by some man who wants to spray your armpits and dry your hands for you.
And what are you supposed to do cause no-one has their wallet out in the bogs, so you have to get it out and choose what denomination to give him, even though he deserves naught, then even though you went in for the 5p piece you pull out a 2 pound coin every time
I'm not sure if they're just not that prevalent in Norwich or whether I'm too old to go to the sort of places that have them.
Either way I'm content.
And near death.
So Id have to say no, Im afraid
I don't personally have any reasons why I shouldn't (aside from never doing anything to merit it!).
though Danny Boyle's reasons for not accepting one were brilliant
as if we actually would. Fair enough people like Benjamin Zephaniah, I could understand his reasoning, or some uber-liberal anti establishment figure where it would be hypocritical to accept. But Mr AN Other from Dullsville, Normalshire like you or I? My Mum would fucking kill me if I turned an OBE down.

but I wouldn't write a snooty article in the Guardian about it.
I don't have any qualms with taking a bit of a pat on the back from the Queen if I did something decent and felt alright receiving recognition for it.
I'd like to think if I turned an honour down it'd be in the manner of Danny Boyle and Ken Livingstone - both of whom have done it incredibly gracefully.
I reckon I'd enjoy dropping into conversation that I turned one down and that I didn't want to make a big deal of it.
^everyone on here
Pretty much the opposite, acutally.
but it wasn't for something that had come from my becoming massively wealthy for the same thing or any other aspect of my life hadn't changed, I'd definitely take one. Increases earning power in certain areas, surely?

if I was proper famous I'd be all like 'yeah, turned that shit down', but as it stands I'd have to loudly tell everyone I ever met that I'd turned down an OBE. I mean, I could turn it down and keep it to myself but that would be no fun.
