    Write a blog and bombard people on Twitter with shameless self-promotion.

    Tempting, but that requires a little to much effort for my liking though.

    Wear a hat and use the phrase "a certain je ne sais quoi" as often as possible.

    Yeah that's more like it. May also go for a Richard Hingston-esque popping of the collar as well, but I doubt I could stomach that.

    I regularly refer to things as being "inexpedient", I imagine this would have the same effect.

    That wouldn't make you a pretentious idiot, that would make you a douchebag.

    Wear a top hat, tails, and cultivate a moustache that would make a Victorian (as in the era, not the **** bit at the bottom of Australia) gentleman proud.

    Not removing King's College London from your location. Actually remove the London bit and people might be duped into thinking you're at King's College, Cambridge.
