Hey "Baron" Danglars, what's this I hear about you dissing me on Facebook? You know you got off lightly last year. Maybe you should check the status on your friends' pages? Last I looked, Fernand's status was "mort" and de Villefort's was "fou". Also, been a while since Caderousse updated his myspace, if you get my drift. Check yourself before you wreck yourself, man.
Also, leave Albert alone. Kid turned out OK even though his parents were cousins.
In answer to your question "How did Edmond get to be such a Count?", the answer is: like you, I bought my title. But I carry it off with a lot more style.
And you spelled "Count" wrong. Moron.
