Alexander the Great

I bet people who didn’t like Alexander the Great tried to get away with not saying his whole name.
“Hey there, Alex.”
[Alexander the Great just stands there.]
“What ho, Alex.”
[Looks around.] “I’m sorry, but who are you talking to?”
[sighs] “What ho, Alex the Great.”
“Alex the Great, who’s that? That sounds very similar to my name . . .”
“Hello Alexander the Great.”
“Oh, hello! Hi. Nice to see you. So—are you ready to be beheaded?”
“Yeah, great.”
