That's it, I QUIT!

Cargo Cult - Who is John Frum? He is known to us by many names, this Visitor from Elsewhere, dispenser of endless abundance and wielder of mysterious technologies: John Frum, Quetzalcoatl, Osiris, "Bob." His cargo is splendid, his generosity boundless, his motives beyond our understanding. But across the ages and around the world, the stories all agree: one day he will return, bearing great gifts. Our theme this year asks three related questions; who is John Frum, where is he really from, and where, on spaceship Earth, are we all going?

I don't see the point of this year's theme at all, I don't even like cargo pants!

You don't quit because of fashion. You quit in order to express your deep connection to the brown and oppressed.

I remeber Clutch Cargo very well, but that "mouth" always creeped me out.

I just heard from The Hat. He heard that OED isn't going, so he's going to change the theme to one we all loved....

NEBULOUS ENTITY!

(Now that was a theme with maximum suckage.)

BTW, Does anyone really notice the theme when they get to the desert????

Actually, I even missed the desert, much less the theme. I guess I was kind of out of it.

The only time I ever would have guessed the theme immediately was during 2008's American Dream, because there were so many flags (and constitutions, and bills of rights).

I was already working on my costume for a Strange Lady, who makes folks nervous . . . then takes them in, and makes them breakfast.

Cargo pants make your butt look big. That is why they are popular in the Marines.

Of course they do. If they don't, they certainly aren't looking at any art while they're there.
