Chateaubriand, a metaphor, took great pains to fulfill for the city of Grasse, some many imperial miles to the southeast of Paris, his bullshit duties as Comptroller-Designee. At last month's quite imaginary Conference of Petty Officials for the Eastern Provinces, where the prior year's vassalages are reckoned and totaled, he had held a particularly headstrong turd in check for the duration of the meeting, taking impeccable minutes all the while.
Gratified was he then when the news arrived by wax courier: "Congratulations from the Sun King, asshole -- you've just been promoted from Petit- to Medium-bourgeois!"
