The Irish actor has been nominated for a Knighthood in the New Year Honors.
The Knight of the Crown is a hereditary gong that comes with its own splendid castle, thousands of rolling acres and some very swanky burial rights.

'It's probably because of Neeson's existing hereditary Irish bloodlines,' one of Neeson's backers explained, 'conflict of interest and all that stuff.
'Still, a bit harsh of the Honors chair to file the application under 'More Sir Liam Crap'.
