The Post Mayan Apocalypse Issue


This being the Post Mayan Apocalypse Issue, in which we announce a new blog, extend a discount deadline,
reveal who's listed in the New York Review of Books, and turn our pineapples upside down.


The envelop for the post apocalyptic The Order of the Pineapple, please. The pineapples go to:

Adam Gorightly and S. John Ross.

S. John Ross (Pope Leo). The mind behind Novus Ordo Discordia, the Gospel of St. Pesher the Gardener,
author of Steve Jackson Games’
Warehouse 23, creator of Risus and fonts used by Discordians, and
“foreplayer” (foreword writer) for
Ek-sen-trik-kuh Discordia: The Tales of Shamlicht. Patriarch Wilhelm
Leonardo Pesher-Principle was a major contributor to
Apocrypha Discordia, likely the first (and often
considered one of the best) Discordian work of the 21st century.

Adam Gorightly. Author of The Prankster and the Conspiracy: The Story of Kerry Thornley and How He
Met Oswald and Inspired the Counterculture. This is considered the primary work covering Thornley and the
early Discordians, and uncovered much that was unknown.
The Shadow Over Santa Susana: Black Magic,
Mind Control, and “The Manson Family” Mythos is one of the most complete compilations of Charles Manson
and the Manson family. He is known as the “Crackpot Historian.”

The Order of the Pineapple (aka The DisOrder of the Pineapple) honors those who contribute to discord
and ek-sen-trik tendencies above and beyond the call of duty. It was first given in 1982 and is given each
year on January 18 which is Pat Pineapple Day. Last year’s winners were
Doctor Demento and R. Crumb.

Congratulations to the new winners! Remember to eat something having to with pineapple on January 18!

If you or someone you know wants to begin getting our absolutely free Snooze Letter and other cool
emailings (we usually send about one email a month), send an email to the address listed on our
with the subject
Add Me. If you want us to take your name off of our emailing list (which means you will
remain unilluminated), send an email to the same address with the subject

Send your comments on our Snooze Letter or proposals or opinions on submitted pieces or a request to
review future submissions or anything else other than submissions to the same address, but put something
Discordian (ED, ECG, Eris, etc.) in your heading so we'll know it's not spam. (We get a lot of spam, and don't
want to unknowingly delete something from a Discordian).
