which is of course garbage.

I blame a combination of late evening, and family who don't take either
lettuce or fruit salad very seriously.  It's still disrespectful to the
people who've earned them, to miscall the gongs.  (I say *nothing* about
the people who haven't but get them anyway.)

MBE is Member of the Order of the British Empire
OBE is Officer of the Order of the British Empire
CBE is Commander of the Order of the British Empire

Sorry about that.
