: Does anyone know the origins of Lady/Lord Muck?
The term I'm familiar with is Lord High Muckety-Muck which I'm guessing might be related. According to a recent Word of the Day on Merriam-Webster's site http://www.merriam-webster.com/cgi-bin/mwwodarch.pl?Mar.07.2008 it's from a Chinook jargon term.
