SEE!?! I Told You!

Given these recent developments, I'm so prescient.

Sure it's all about beer and trivia now, but they're milling about and organizing. There are weekly meetings that serve a roughly sketched, "figuring it out as we go along" initiation purpose. There's even a blogroll so we know who is a member and who ain't.

Yes, kids. I think we all know where this is headed.

The MOB will soon be applying for a charter and requesting entry into the Panhellenic Council. It is, in short, turning into a Fraternity or a Sorority.

What's next? A reworking of the initiation ritual to something where we all have to bow down and pay homage to Lileks, Hewitt, NARN and the Powerline guys? Will ritualistic chanting be involved? Will we all be uttering shortly, "Thank you, sir! May I have another?" What else will be required? Candle passings? Serenades? Will we be ordering sweatshirts with 'MOB' scrawled across them? Will we be participating in Greek Week and the compulsory bed races? Will we be forced to whip out our trusty cordless screwdrivers to construct a homecoming lawn display? Will float building two weeks before finals be mandatory? Will we now have to perform intricate Rush dances on the front lawn of the MOB house? Or---holy of holies-- will the ghastly phrase, "Fire UP!" be repeatedly squeaked out by perky blondes for motivational purposes?

Heaven forfend!

Soon, I am pretty damn sure, I'll be drafted into licking envelopes. This is how it always starts.

Join up for the fun and tongue numbness will shortly follow.

Hey Congratulations! Don't forget us little people... (can I be part of your cabinet?)

Yeah, as long as you take over my envelope licking duties.

Heh. I like that.

I intend to use it to dig at certain individuals who may, or may not, enjoy a thirst-quenching beverage at Keegan's on an occasional Thursday night.
