The other day I was talking to a friend of mine, who happens to be an officer in one of our local Masonic lodges; these conversations are always enlightening.
On this particular occasion he told me he’d taken some secret filming,of a lodge meeting, on his camera phone; he then asked if I wanted to see it? I was of course eager to get a glimpse of the secret brotherhood, the cabal that controls the world, the nefarious secret masters who play with our lives as if they were toys, the dark conspiracy that holds the true identity of Jack the Ripper and who knows what else? ….
He pressed the play button, and there they were….. Sat in ranks, dressed in their dark suits and finery, using their silver tea spoons and crystal wine glasses as musical instruments, grinning like imbeciles and enthusiastically tapping along to a recording of “Jingle Bells”….
As my friend has often remarked, ” control the world? Half of this lot can barely control their own bladders…”
