An earl is the British equivalent of a count. The name is an Anglo-Saxon cognate of the Scandinavian word jarl, meaning a chieftan. Interestingly, there is no feminine equivalent of the title, and the wife of an earl is called a countess.
 Joke recycled shamelessly from The Goodies.
Goodie, Goodie, yum yum!
 Perhaps ironically, all three of The Goodies have since been awarded OBEs, Bill Oddie in 2003 for wildlife conservation and Tim Brooke-Taylor and Graeme Garden in 2011 for services to light entertainment. None have been made earls, alas.
