Maryland Mechanic Discovers He Is … King… of WHERE?


Isn’t it amazing, the things you can discover online?

Take David Drew Howe, for example. This mechanic from Maryland fired up his computer and discovered something that changed his life forever. And no, it wasn’t a new recipe for pudding. (Ha!)

Howe, you see, is descended from the very first King of the Isle of Man, a tiny nation off the coast of Great Britain. And yes, just like in a Hollywood movie, that means this blue collar worker is now a monarch of Europe.

This isn’t a joke. Europeans, you see, take their royalty very seriously. Howe (or King David, as we must now call him) scored tickets to the wedding of Prince William and Katherine Middleton, and he’s currently in Europe learning how to behave more like the aristocrat.

His adventure will be screened on TLC this fall, so we peasants can see what life is like for the newly minted 1%.

In the meantime though, you non-Kings can let us know what you think in the comments section below.

And be sure to visit the London Mail for more details on this spectacular discovery.
