In April of 2014, the Grand Poobah (RVM 1) held an opening ceremony to our grand gathering of mutants. There was quite a build-up via the RVM thread about what was hidden inside his komono. At the opening ceremony he exposed what was in his komono. It happened to be 25-40 mascots for each of us. We still proudly display our mascots in our MH's. At the ceremony the lady folk all wore kimonos to surprise RVM1 when he arrived in his. It was very, very funny.

A mini-C is a mini meeting of mutants. It might be 2 couples in Texas, Indiana, or Arizona or it might be up to 5 couples. A midi-C is a meeting of mutants larger than 5 couples (my limits for gatherings to determine their name designation).

The grass skirts? Well, someone else will have to explain their significance in detail. Has to do with eye-searing acts of grown men trying to terrify an entire gathering.

Excellent reply Papaw Steve...
And for the unfamiliar - C is short for Curiosity. A gathering of mutants is a colletive noun know as A Curiosity of Mutants!

You sure Dave wasn't wearing a kimodo?

Oh, Moonbeam ... Moonbeam ....
I fear you have wandered into the realm of sick, twisted mutants in the land of never ending weirdness. It's too late for you now, though. Once you're in, there's no going back; and if you try, the Grand Poobah will send his Minor Poobah, his deputies and his flying monkeys after you. So, the best thing simply is to give in and mutate. It's relatively painless.

Welcome aboard!

MPH,


I enquired because I did not understand all the terms being bandied about. As far as escape; how do you know that I was not meant to come here to find those of like mind?


Pawpawto5,


Eye-searing acts of grown men trying to terrify an entire group gathering? Bring it on, sounds like my kind of fun! Feels like home. Now I just need to retire so I can come to these parties and afternoon teas. Three years and I will be there.

We were all destined to be here. More are coming. The siren lure of the Grand Poonah calls to all.

Lynne the grass skirts came about due to the theme of this years Grand Curosity. Last year we had a Maudi Graus night, this year is a planned Luau hence grass skirts and coconut bras For The Ladies ( nothing required ) and Luau apperel for the men.

AND if Papa Steve shows up in a sumo loin cloth it could be a sign of the apocalypse!

We don't normally direct people to this thread, those that find it on their own have a higher apptatud for the Mutant Life.

Not even The Shadow knows what magical and mysterious things will be cloaked in....The Kimono!
Truth: I'm still pondering and conjuring the contents.

Sometimes confused with a gaggle of geese or a murder of crows because both come to mind at these gathers.

The beach was marvelous. The oysters were mutantlicious. And the onion rings were crisp but not too large... and someone but shrimp and oysters in my bacon. 81 degrees and full on clear skies all day.
