Trying to be funny on Event Registration1 min read

Event registration is more than just a formality with certain organizers.  I remember signing up as and when I received the email. They did not like the fact that I placed my occupation as ‘rightful king’ or wording to that effect.

Dear Sir/Madam

Please note that my registration was entered by a friend who holds strong Republican viewpoints and as such believes that the declaration of royalty is as true for himself as it is to Queen Elizabeth. I am self employed and don’t hold such controversial views. I would like to attend the conference and even if I am not allowed would like to express my regret on the manner in which that form was filled.
