Today I was thinking back to an experience I had in Gurdon, Arkansas. The experience involved running into a very strange group of people, along with two children - a boy and a girl - on some remote railroad tracks in the middle of the night. As the incident bubbled up in my mind today, I decided to kill some time by looking into some historical research on the Gurdon area.

And that's when it happened....I came across a Secret Society which originated in Gurdon called (and yes, this is all real....)


Concatenated Order of Hoo-Hoo






The order was more informal than other secret societies of its day. It did not have lodge rooms, enforced attendance at meetings or anything else that other orders had that could be avoided. The executive committee of the Order was known as the Supreme Nine and consisted of the Snark, the Senior Hoo-Hoo, Junior Hoo-Hoo, Scrivenoter, Bojum, Jabberwock, Custocatian, Arcanoper and Gurdon. Judicial affairs and care of the emblem were delegated to a House of the Ancients which consisted of the past executives of the Order and whose members served for life. A each Hoo Hoo annual the order would perform an embalming of the Snark, passing him into the House. By the late 1890s the House included B. Arthur Johnson, William Eddy Barns and James E. Defebaugh. Each state or foreign country was ruled by a Viceregent Snark. Local groups were called Concatenations




Okay...this was just too damn funny to let it pass.

Very new information. Would you mind expanding on your meeting and what exactly made you think these were the people you met.

And here I thought "Concatenate" was just the most useful Excel formula of all time!

I'll keep an eye on this
Black Cats = are associated with the moon, and attributed to darkness and Satan, and evil, though some countries see it as a good luck charm. In general, they are seen as representative of Wicca and witchcraft, and are at times subjects of ritualistic sacrifices by non-witches. Of course, unfounded superstition is attached to this creature.

Sorry just noticed the tail, number 9? = 3×3
The number 3 has been used in both Christianity and various occult orders

Oh, I don't think this "secret society" (loosely used term, in this case) is related to the incident on the tracks. I just came across it while doing some research and thought it was hilarious. I gather from the Wikipedia link that they intended to sound like something out of a Dr. Seuss book.

Bear in mind that this "Secret Society" was a joke; an excuse for guys to get together once a year and party.

Aha! This explains some mysterious lyrics. Obviously, Brian Eno is a secret member of the Concantenated Order of Hoo Hoo!

I found people will make all kinds of groups or what ever in today's age to feel like they have some kind of special unknoWn power that the masses will come begging to learn...sigh.

I must be having trouble with my glasses today...because I thought you just said Conctrate was better that COUNTIF and VLOOKUP...but that's just not possible

On topic...

what a weird set of requirements they started with..




Membership was restricted to white males over 21 who were engaged in the lumber industry as lumbermen, newspapermen, railroad men and saw mill machinery men.


Now they say Forest/Lumbermen...or men who want to better their world...which I suppose being a Mason shouldn't surprise me as much...we aren't actual masonry workers...this just seemed like an odd jumble of figures

interesting read Gypsy
