Journal Entry: Addendum to Minutes

Journal entry, 9/14/14: President Justice Minotaur asked that the following be added to the official minutes of the one hundred and third annual meeting of the International League of Fire Tenders:

Let the minutes reflect that Prince Henry the Navigator was also present at the meeting and is a member of the Lodge. Mr. Navigator was manacled in a dog catcher’s van in the parking lot but the proceedings were relayed to him in a crude sign language by a Boy Scout eager to earn service hours. At the time the meeting was adjourning, Navigator broke free from his fetters and killed the driver of the van, the Scout, and Participatory Shelves with a mailbox that he (Navigator) had pulled out of the cement. Using his executive power, Minotaur replaced Shelves, who had been appointed to a special committee assigned to look into selling camel rides, with Brian Hallelujah.

(End of addendum)


Journal Entry: Fire Tenders’ League Minutes

Journal entry, 9/14/14:

Dockery Crunch

Minutes of prior meeting had been lost but were nevertheless approved by unanimous vote.

President Minotaur rebuked Mr. Crunch for wearing a T-shirt bearing the words “Don’t hate me because I like sharp cheddar.”

Mr. Hallelujah inquired as to the location of the Lodge’s hand-cranked ice cream maker. No one could remember that there was one. After further thought, Hallelujah apologized for having brought up the issue. He remembered that the ice cream maker was something he had lost in his recent divorce and was not relevant to the Lodge.

Mr. Schule reminded the men that “hard drugs” are illegal but said that if anyone needed “a source” he could provide one. Minotaur asked that the comment be deleted from the minutes.

Discussion of “dire” funding situation. Possibility of selling camel rides at New Salem Halloween Festival broached. Committee formed of Lambson, Shelves, and Willis. To report at special meeting September 20, 11:30 p.m., at League Lodge.

Meeting adjourned.
