John at Transylvanian Dutch had help deciphering an old family joke from the tombstone of his great-grandmother's father.
Whenever you invoked his Hebrew name, Moshe Leyb, you were always supposed to follow it with, "the King". She never explained why.
We left it as a quirky inside joke we would probably never understand completely.
And then I found his tombstone, and discovered the answer was written on it.
