When pressed further as to why this specific step was being taken and why now, Art replied, “Okay, Okay! Let me put it kindly… we’re hearing terrible stuff from the Brothers, at least, from those not too dramatized to talk about it. A whole lot of our members are being driven off by the Rubbish these rogues are throwing at them.” He paused and continued, “Seeing as there’s only one source of Rubbish that we know of, we’re aiming our sights quite literally on taking out the trash. The fact that we're having some good old fashion Southern style fun at the same time is purely a way to increase the retention of who we truly want in the organization.”
When old timer and Past Master Worshipful Brother Willy Listen was asked his thoughts on this, his only reply was, "I sure wish we had free license to do this in my day. It would have made a world of difference for generations of men coming through."
