Conversations with my brother-in-law

My sister- and brother-in-law were over for dinner Sunday night, and I can't remember how it came up, but S. commented (about someone's name) "Oh, that's like Richard Rich!"

BIL: The cartoon character?
MV: Um, no, he's a historical personage. He betrayed St. Thomas More at his trial?
NSLR: At least according to "A Man For All Seasons."
BIL: Looks slightly befuddled, or perhaps horrified.
MV: Yes, we're trying to ensure that our children are as vigorously ostracized as possible at school.
BIL: recovers quickly And, uh, we'll help you out with that.
MV: I'm sure we'll all do what we can.
