4. Jay Critchley, FF Alumn, issues annual Ten Commandments

The IRS Issues the Ten Commandments of Petro-ideology - Part III

International Re-Rooters Society (IRS) President Jay Critchley issued his annual Ten Commandments at the 20th Annual Re-Rooters Day Ceremony on January 7 in Provincetown Harbor, Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The theme for this year's ritual, which includes the burning of a tree/boat on the water at sunset with discarded items from participants' lives, is "Personal Umbrella Handlers." This was chanted backwards,"lanosreP allerbmU sreldnaH."

And Our Lord appeared to Moses in the form of a Burning Bush and gave him... The Ten Commandments of Petro-Ideology-Part III

1. Oil is the Lord thy God and looting is thy credo;
(Chant after each commandment: LANOSREP ALLERBMU SRELDNAH)
2. Thou shalt not oppose simulsequel wars;
3. Thou shalt not question daddy's war in vain;
4. Remember thou keep holy the Birth of Crude;
5. Honor thy father and thy mother: Lube & Job;
6. Thou shalt not murder-but oil spills, boutique weapons branded Under God, unilateral elimidating, and barrels of laughs are OK;
7. Thou shalt not commit adultery-unless someone fucks with your pipeline dreams, extreme stock options, balance balls, or your dipstick;
8. Thou shalt not steal-except by greasing the frugal elite, lymposucking the earth, drilling into our predictive intelligence, and lubricating rogue states;
9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against cost avoidance-beware of false prophets who seek chat room contactees, Drive While Yackking, wear male pantyhose, and discard their plastic dildos;
10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's goods-unless you are a charismatic CEO, cloned ratbot, wrinkle reduction New Normal, have a personal umbrella handler, or use antimicrobial hand cream.

Let it be known that the devils and sinners who deceive us shall be cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and false prophets are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. AMEN. The ceremony also included reworked songs such as the Twelve Days of Christmas:

12 Days of Stockpiling
1. Abductees on Kneel TV
2. Radiation pills
3. Ratbots
4. Cooked books
5. Snakehead fish
6. Feng shui missiles
7. Calmatives
8. Bunker Busters
9. Simulsequels
10. Elimidates
11. Calf implant
12. Bald chickens

The IRS was founded by Jay Critchley in 1983 to reclaim and "re-root" ourselves to the earth.

7. Aaron Landsman, FF Alumn, at Dixon Place, March 5, 12, 19, 2003

Hi. I am doing three performances of my new play, Family Establishment. I am really happy about the amazing actors working on this show, and would love to have you come check it out, and let me know what you think, because I plan to keep working on it this summer. One cool thing is that it's performed site-specifically at a bar, so there's none of that annoying "where should we go for drinks" after the show.

Highlights include: a lawyer's harrowing jelly candy incident, a pen that comes back from the dead, and a juggler trying to hustle tourist traffic in winter, "shivering while his balls come down." I have a good feeling about this. Aaron

Details follow.
