    So what happens if the SW shudders?

    Or worse, forgets his line?

    Regrettably the joke misses the meaning of the Sun rising in the East.

    At the rising of the Sun a stream of Light flows across the Earth and into the lodge through the East. The Master on occasion may facilitate the flow so that the lodge is filled with that spiritual Light even at night.

    There are of course a lot of other spiritual Lights in Masonry.

    The "equal regularity" is the hardest part. With old Masons, it often calls for prunes and laxatives...

    Which, all to often, begin to work their progress before my fellow "ole cutes" vacate the tiled sessions.

    I recognize this picture.

    There's this one Worshipful Myself-master I know who has his stage crew follow him where ever he goes.

    Yes ... collars sometime make the man.

    As a long-standing Lodge Secretary, the WM no longer says, "Brother Secretary, retire and collect the usual fee" at the start of the First Degree Work. It has been modified to, "Brother Secretary, retire and take your usual pee."
