“When did Patrick Chan become a T-blogger? Did I miss something?”
Yes, you missed it, but the induction ceremony is by invitation only.
We flew the company jet to Stonehenge to perform the customary rites of initiation under the superior conjunction of Venus.
The installation involves the usual formalities, viz. blood pact, Latin imprecations, hazing rituals, secret handshake, trial by ordeal, and cyanide caplet (in case he’s ever captured by the liberal establishment), &c.
(We used to dispense cyanide capsules, but due to product tampering, it was necessary to switch to caplets to preserve the purity of the dosage.)
Our trial by ordeal is modeled on the venerable precedent of David’s dowry (1 Sam 18:25f.), only Philistines are hard to come by these days, so the novitiate is permitted to substitute Darwinians for Philistines to complete the quota.
Another novitiate was initiated into the Hermetic Order of the T-Blog that evening, but we have yet to release his name to the media since we have him working under deep cover to facilitate the pending coup d’etat by the Truly Reformed.
