You can become a Scottish Lord or Lady for only $50.
An organization dedicated to preserving Scotland’s vanishing woodlands is offering to sell Californians one (1) square foot of Scottish land as a means to preserve the parcel totaling 700 acres. Since under Scottish law anyone owning land in Scotland has the legal right to use the title of “Lord” or “Lady” this makes the proud owner of the kitchen tile-sized plot a Laird. While this law makes Lords about a dozen to a shilling in Scotland, they are pretty rare in the states. Might get one a few more dates or maybe help you talk your way out of a speeding ticket, what?
The name of the organization doing this is Highland Titles. The parcel is located in the Scottish Highlands near Glencoe.
The neighbors might be a bit noisy though. Ozzy Osbourne has already bought one.

… we have a small favor to ask. More and more people are reading the Humor Times, but advertising revenues for internet sites everywhere keep falling. And unlike so many other websites, we have not put up a paywall -- we want to keep this much-loved (and much-needed!) political humor free, if possible!
So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Humor Times' unique content takes a lot of time and effort to produce... but we do it because we believe uncompromising political satire is more important than ever these days.
If everyone who reads and likes our website helps fund it, we can continue to help people laugh at the news, rather than cry about it! For as little as $1, you can support the Humor Times – and it only takes a minute. Thank you!
Or, please consider becoming a Sustaining Supporter via our Patreon Page, contributing a certain amount each month. You can do it for as long or as short a time as you like. It's a huge help with our monthly budget!
