Titles are all the rage in this country. It would be blasphemous to be called by the Title your loving parents spent a lot of time and energy researching and carefully selecting to fit you. (This doesn't apply to our Shia brethren. Your name was chosen by a coin flip. Heads=Hussein/Fatmeh. Tails=Ali/Zainab.)
You don't really have to earn a title to claim it. As soon as you set foot in a hospital you'll be known as Doctor, even if you're a male nurse. Grab a mike and show some tits and you're an Artist . Grab a Mike, Show Tits, and Shake them and you're a Star Artist. Grab a Mike , Show Tits, and Shake them when you're pushing 100, and you're a legend.
Write the obits in the paper and you're a Philosopher. Go to Saudi Arabia and you'll be christened as Hajj. If your great great great^100 grandfather died in Karbala, you are a Sayyed. Coincidentally if you die in Karbala today you are collateral damage. Things aren't what they used to be. On that subject, if your grandfather used to toss Turkish salad you are a Beik or a Mir, these days if you toss Turkish salad, you're a Fag.
So what happens when you merge 2 political parties with 2 different presidents? Does one of them, God forbid, lose his title? Of course they both stay as president, you just tag one of them High President.
The more titles you have, the better person you are. So naturally a man who is a General, a President, a Zaeem, a Parliamentarian, and a Midget makes the best candidate for the highest office in the country.
Let's not forget the King of Taouk and the Sheikh of Shawarma, it sure beats sandwich wrapper.
So How many titles can you claim?
