A husband, wife, and son arrive at the entrance to an English royal palace for an evening dinner...
Before each guest enters the palace, a butler formally introduces each family to the guests with an announcement.
As the family approaches the butler at the entrance, the butler asks:
Butler: “And your family name, sir?”
Husband: “Bates”
The butler opens the door and with loud and eloquent speech, announces:
Butler: “Dear guests, I would like to introduce to you, Mr and Mrs Bates, and their son, Master Bates.”
