This is the scanned-in 1930 DeMoulin Bros. & Co. Fraternal Supply Catalog No. 439 in its entirety. This may be the best thing to ever appear on the Internet. The names of the gags and punishments in the catalog alone are a kind of wild poetry ("The Rollicking Mustang Goat, The Fuzzy Wonder Goat, The Bucking Goat, Ferris Wheel Coaster Goat, Whiz Bang Aeroplane, The Submarine, Trick Bottom Chair, Trick Chairs, Electric Chair, A Pointed Affair, Bomb Stunt, Electric Bench, The Trick Camera and Surprise Chair, The "Jag" Producer") but they are nothing compared to the illlustrations, each of which is better, weirder and more incomprehensible than the last.

Wow that was a nice trip to the past!. Its funny to see some of the jokes that were played in lodges in the past, like the molten lead test. Hilarious!. I dont think however its still happening today, Every lodge and rituals ive been attending in the past few years were serious and by the book, and sometimes even boring.

Hilarious!

Not sure it's got much to do with freemasonry though. Seems more applicable to college frats and fun side orders than FM proper.

It doesn't. The "molten lead test" was (is?) part of the Oddfellow ritual. The other gadgets were used by a wide variety of different fraternal orgs.

For those who get the Scottish Rite Journal there was a great article about this subject just a couple of issues back. I belive it can still be found on the Supreme Council's web page.
