I had to give it this title because I think it's a genius euphemism. Like all the best ones, it dresses up a statement highly unflattering to the speaker and makes it sound somehow technical/analytic. Meanwhile I am totally baffled by Dad's moves here: low-earning David is acceptable, with Dad himself making up for his shortcomings, where Willem is disqualified for his first name? I'm not a huge fan either, but since when is Dad the bleeding heart aesthete?
