11 Things That Change For The Better After You Lose Your Phony Euro Non-Landed Title To Divorce

  1. You can drink beer out of a bottle again.
  2. You never have to play doubles tennis with a guy wearing floral shorts again.
  3. You may not be a Countess anymore, but at least you don’t have CRAZY EYES.
  4. No more confusion on magazine subscription cards–happily check “Ms.” and be done with it.
  5. Next time you write a book on etiquette, you can come up with a good title that actually makes people want to buy the book.
  6. No more “family pride” trips to the Statue of Liberty. (BOR-ING! LULZ)
  7. You can try out your talking quietly method of seduction on a whole new, younger generation of men: the baby boomers this time!
  8. If you can still afford a driver, you can now be introduced to him by your first name only.
  9. No more of those annoying bi-monthly dinners and wifely duties visits from the Count.
  10. [singlepic=531,320,240,,right]It will be nice to stop appearing at public events with a dead ringer for Dr. Strangelove.
  11. No more long drawn out explanations of what exactly a Countess is to the group of underprivileged children to whom you’re “giving back.” And who couldn’t care less.

    Bwaaahaa! Did you see this blurb about the Countess’ book?

    “Being an extremely low-born and gauche person, I rely heavily on the Countess for tips on good manners and etiquette. She has also taught me how to be more sassy and alluring.”
    -Simon Doonan, creative director of Barney’s New York, author of Eccentric Glamour

    That has got to be a backhanded slam.
