The Noble NoZe Brotherhood ... at Wikipedia?
Readers may recall that I 'fessed up to having been a member of Baylor University's Noble NoZe Brotherhood during my callow youthful college 'daze' ... which may help explain some of my occasional absurdist humor.
Be that as it may, I was surprised to find a Wikipedia entry on the NoZe Brotherhood. It's full of lies, fabricated scandals, and outright slander directed at the Noble NoZe!
I proudly added a few of my own.
I see from Googling that the NoZe Brothers celebrated their 80th anniversary this year, according to an article in the Waco Tribune Herald, which means that the Brotherhood was founded in 1926.
That's a lie! It was founded in 1924, precisely as the Wikipedia entry states!
Actually, that's also a lie.
In truth, the NoZe Brotherhood was founded before the foundations of the world but lay hidden away among the deep things of Elmo the Lightning God until its revelation in these latter days.
Hmmm ... I ought to add this fact to Wikipedia's store of lore about the NoZe.
Anyway, speaking of the NoZe religion, my official post in my NoZe days was "Keeper of the Prayer," which went something like this:
The Brotherhood had bequeathed me this honored "Pray-er" position in virtue of my obvious qualifications.
Hope wake I.
Before die I.
If keep to NoZe my Elmo to pray I.
Sleep to down me lay I now.
Namely, my NoZe moniker: "Brother AgNoZetic."
As you can surmise, we were a pretty silly organization, and intentionally so, but belonging to the NoZe gave one a certain cachet ... except that one's membership was supposed to remain so damned anonymous.
Yet despite our Groucho Marx noses, big wigs, and shabby tuxedos, other students managed to see through the disguise.
And not a single one of us had plausible deniability.
