Not everyone has exhibited the quality and thorough refinement required to be MA official. In fact, few can.
It is more than just a badge of honor, it is a medal of merit, an emblem of respect, a pin of esteem. It is a brooch of distinction, a button of prestige and an insignia of renown.
MA officialdom signifies entry into the highest echelons of elite society, ascension from the lowly gutters where troggles and groms squabble among the discarded crumbs from the ivory tables of those grand official members, who are so undeniably above them.
What does it take then? If you must ask, then you cannot possibly understand.
