A Flaubertian Irony.

In order to outrage the middle class[es]
– épater les bourgeois –
you have to be middle-class.

And there will (eventually,
probably) come a time
when the FOMO* Principle
will take effect.

*Fear of Missing Out.

Ha! Ha! Many thanks.

Really, honestly, truly, sincerely I wasn't thinking of myself, who was born into the Lower Bourgeoisie (Class 2b).

Many thanks for the information on Caer Iborneith (who I first thought to be Welsh!). I wonder if the 'fortress on the River Boyne' was the now-desecrated archæo-supermarket of Newgrange (which I remember as a grassy mound) ?
