No hoods, capes, or torches Raine, I believe that's the Elks Club.

For our new members here who are unfamiliar with it, here is a brief outline of what they have to look forward to: Each new initiate will place themselves upside down upon the wooden school chair, perched atop a precarious pile of furniture in the Mess, with the soot-encrusted soles of their flying boots pressed firmly against the ceiling. Vice President Dej, or in his stead Robert, (or for that matter any other senior member who wishes), shall then give each initiate three whacks with the cricket bat, following which the initiate shall recite the words, "Oooh Matron! Is that a dodo in my trousers?", in an octave higher than his normal speaking voice. Upon descending from the perch each new member shall then be given a glass of Warsteiner which they will raise in salute to our assembly, saying "Per dementia ad astra!", at which we shall all down our drink in one.

Let the rites of passage begin!

A friend of mine (now sadly gone) once told us that he was apparently talking in his sleep, because over breakfast the next morning his wife asked him "What does 'break left' mean?"


Aha! I knew I'd sheen you beef- sheen you bee *hic* sheen ubefur. Shtand shtill you shwabbie, you obviously don't have your land legs or you'd be shtanding shtill like *hic* like *hic* like me. Neither does your twin or that other guy on your left who looks jusht like you too. *HIC* Shouldn't be in the offishers bar without your land legs, itsh bad form. All of shtand shtill, you're making me shea shick.

Now, "Break left" means, tacitcally turning left as fast as you can without breaking anything. Like thish...

*tries to perform a right turn and falls through the mess's new piano*

Let's pretend I got the BWOC badge to embed here.

Gentlemen, and I use the term most loosely, we have another new vict - err - umm member. Welcome aboard Wulfe, your tab has been started at the bar and will be abused most heartily. And speaking of abuse - Robert! The cricket bat, if you would be so kind.

BWOC BWOC BWOC!

Here, here. I heartily welcome this gentleman as he has shown himself to be the right sort! And now for the spanking!

To quote the eightscore young blondes and brunettes of the Castle Anthrax: "A spanking, a spanking!" To be fair though, in this case it's really more of, "A beating, a beating!"

Wulfe, are you sure you still want to join? Believe me, no amount of padding in your trousers will help. Welcome to the Brotherhood, Get used to seeing this room from the worm’s eye perspective, a lot.

The connecting rod out of my brain, my brain,
From out of my arse take the camshaft,
And assemble the engine again."
