Well, SHAKSPEReans, according to the AP (Associated Press):

"Mick Jagger to Get Knighthood on Dec. 12
Tue Dec 2,10:23 AM ET

LONDON - After months of uncertainty, Mick Jagger (news) has managed to
fit Queen Elizabeth II (news - web sites) into his busy schedule.

The Rolling Stones star said Tuesday that he will go to Buckingham
Palace on Dec. 12 to accept his knighthood."

Well, well, well.  How *nice* of him to accommodate HRH Queen Elizabeth
II.  Sir Mick!  Sure makes a *mockery* of Sir William, as in:
Shakespeare, Gent!
