"There are only two classes that really can't help taking life seriously - schoolgirls of thirteen and the Hohenzollerns; they might be exempt."

--Saki, quoted in Vesna Goldsworthy, Inventing Ruritania, p. 125.

Meanwhile, Cusack reminds us whate emergency precautiouns to take when surprised by a Hohenzollern in your study. Also, Wikipedia: "Traffic police in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan also use a form of the Pickelhaube."
