This is a fairly short post, but it is of pivotal importance for the society with no name and no eyes.
Right from the start our secret society was missing something. Nothing critical. Just a little something. Today Progressive Pilgrim was indoctrinated into Ocularus Incognitus, and simultaneously, the one small problem for this most un-secret of secret societies has been resolved.
I am about to spear off on a tangent, but it’s a necessary tangent so stick with me. Several years ago there was a movie starring my friend and neighbour, Nicole Kidman (well, she is from Australia) and that idiot from outer space, Tom Cruise. Remember Eyes Wide Shut. I’ll bet that secret society had a mascot. All the best secret societies do. In fact even the most mundane clubs often have a mascot. Now, we are not as elitist or promiscuous as the organisation that Mr Cruise tried to infiltrate, but we are equally entitled to have a mascot.
This rates special mention for one very important reason.
When I received the photo of the Progressive Pilgrim, it came pre-prepared with a white strip. A WHITE STRIP. Unorthodox to say the least. But then I looked a little closer at the photograph.
THE MAN HAS A GOAT!
I have already said that every secret society needs a mascot and the goat is probably the most "secret society" of all the mascots in the entire animal kingdom. So it’s only appropriate that the goat keeper has a ceremonial white strip, rather than the traditional black strip of adult members.
♫All hail the keeper of the goat♫
