If there is an "Inner Clique", then logically, some or all of us who are not in the "Inner Clique" should form an "Outer Clique".
I propose the following:
(1) We adopt a left-handed secret handshake.
(2) We adopt the Aardvark as our "Outer Clique" Mascot. (Down with possums!)
(3) If any member of the "Outer-Clique" should inadvertently mention the word "POSSUM" he must grip his nose tightly between the thumb & forefinger of the right hand, and hop in a circle (widdershins) three times chanting, "Aardvark Aardvark, this is bloody Aard-vark" in a loud voice, to ward off bad luck.
(4) No members of the "Inner Clique" allowed. (you may be asked to prove your non-membership)
(5) Membership fee is one groat (No not GOAT, GROAT) or equivalent in CSA or Phenoecian currency. (American express? That will do nicely")
If you wish to join the "Outer Clique" please send your membership fee, and proof of non-membership of the "Inner Clique" to Crazy Eddie NOW!
