Tony Robinson has been knighted at the Queen’s Birthday Honours, while Rowan Atkinson has been made a CBE. I think this calls for a quote from Blackkadder!

From Season 2, Episode 6 [1]The one where the evil German Ludwig (Hugh Laurie) kidnaps and kills them.

Blackadder: Madam, life without you is like a broken pencil.

Queen Elizabeth: Explain.

Blackadder: Pointless.
