Nay, kind sir, Au Contraire!  You have just earned the humanitarian-of-the-week 
award.  And you stand exposed for all the world to see, that you are a man of 
rare taste in fine german metal and encyclopedic knowledge; the very embodiment 
of chivalry, a truly noble spirit.

Ain't it a pity there's so few of us left...?
