Welcome Willing Student,
You are being initiated not just into a secret society but into an elite academy of the knowing. We will impart wisdom to you so we can all improve the world until we are enlightening the public to the meaning of life. Which is 100% true, if you replace, “impart wisdom to” with “bum money from”, “improve the world” to “drink ourselves stupid”, “enlightening the” with “jailed for”, and “to the meaning of life” with “displays of lewd behavior”. A solemn oath each Lodge member lives by.
P.S. The passphrase is, “New World Hors d'oeuvre.”
