Well, you seem to have indoctrinated your nephew in the Napoleonic mindset, so I thought you might be familiar with it. (I won't ask whether you throw the rocks at people....)

Clearly, I have people to throw the rocks for me. I just sit on my horse and give orders. Whenever I try to ride into battle at the head of my army, my portraitist yells at me not to move and if I'm doing this on purpose so that none of his works will ever make it into the Louvre. No idea what he's talking about, so I deem it better not to get into an argument.

Somehow the original Napoleon didn't seem the non-confrontational type to me.

What about the part where the Duke of Wellington shoots guns too long, so you get bored, sneak into his room, and play with his toys? I thought that's what you indoctrinated your nephew with....

Admittedly, the Duke of Wellington's toys are rather boring, but you can still ruin all his pipe tobacco.

My nephew is not going to get his hands on any tobacco!

Your nephew's smoking habit. As in, the one you caused. Didn't it ever occur to you that he's way too young?
