The friendly staff here at Gormogons.com (which you really should visit) would like to correct some items from previous posts.
- In a recent post dealing with liberalism, we indicated that Mr. Tuck Pointer, 42, of Deer Lick Falls was a rampant pederast and was the leader of an animal molestation ring. Mr. Pointer is indeed a well-respected Lutheran minister in good standing. We regret any error.
- While discussing modern-day hedonism, Mrs. Kay Ella Menopee was identified as a practicing cannibal. Mrs. Menopee, along with several of her friends, disputes this claim. We however are pretty sure shes up to something, and cannibalism is not explicitly out of the question.
- In one of GorTs recent science and technology updates, GorT made reference to Rayleigh scattering in the atmosphere. Rayleigh scattering is responsible for turning our skies blue, and it is not an edible outdoor carpeting substitute as erroneously identified. We believe this was a transcription error.
- Similarly, Puters post on immigration reform should have prioritized border security, amnesty claims, normalization, and employer verification, rather than accidentally reprinting a grocery list. To our knowledge, no serious proposal for reform includes carrots, onion (Vidalia), milk (half gal skim), and fabric softener. Even Ron Pauls.
The Mandarin, whose real name is 吏恆, joined the order in 1309, and introduced the Gormogons into England during the 18th Century.
The Mandarin enjoys spending time with his pet manticore, Βάρἰκος, or Barry (who can be found in the Bestiary). When not in the Castle…well, frankly, nobody is quite sure where he goes.
The Mandarin popularized the fine art of “gut booting,” by which he delivers a powerful kick to the stomach of anyone that annoys him. Although nearly universal today, the act of gut booting or threatening someone or something with a gut boot is solely due to him.
