Sounds like an epithet for Madonna. I can see it used in a concert review...

"The lights dimmed as Her Madgesty took the stage."

OMG, people are actually spelling majesty with a "g"? I have yet to see this!

Why is no one in the schools stopping this?

(And people wonder why I want to run for school trustee here next year ... )
