The Turkey Curse is what I remember most fondly, and indeed the only part of that book I remember with any particular clarity.

I've yet to actually use it. I know you aren't supposed to ACTUALLY use it, but I kinda wanna try it anyways, just to see what would happen.

Our in-depth research indicates that it "makes you look like an asshole."
"Letting a God into your life is like letting "Bob" into your wallet.  It's going to hurt, because they always grab more things that they said they would."

Best case scenario: people look confused and say "is it Thanksgiving already" or "what the fuck is up with your goddamn turkey noises".

In the United States, the police may just roll up on you and shoot you in your face.  YMMV.

Probabilities based upon melanin content.

Melanin content, poverty, in that order.  Black dudes are shot for holding a cell phone, white kids are calmly arrested after murdering a couple of dozen people at the local high school.

Just imagine what would happen if someone that was poor and non-White started making gobbling noises at someone on the subway.  They wouldn't know which bullet holes to bleed out of once the MBTA cops were done with them.

A Sermon on Ethics is probably my favorite.

Bitter Tea and Starbuck's Pebbles run a close second and third.

That one is a great one! It is at it's core, a very thought-provoking section 👍

Well... whenever i perform the turkey curse (which happens about monthly because i am suspicious of those around me... and prefer they would be ...free from the curse of greyface...) i often get the response (in some variation.) "What the hell are you doing?"
Which then this response transforms me into a cat... and i flee the scene before they realize what just happened.

Though the most memorable experience was when a fellow who i just happened to be walking down the street and meeting, decided it was a great idea to counter it with a turkey curse... :O which shocked me... so a pleasantly asked them, "Are you a discordian?"
they had no idea what i was talking about. :D so i assume to this day that i have accidently performed the turkey curse on another discordian... who is now probably a super discordian.

The bit on Grids - which I've discovered likely came from Alan Watts. Alan Watts had a radio show at Berkely in the late 50s, and teen Mal and Omar probably listened to it. Here's a section from his book  On The Tabboo Against Knowing Who You Are - http://cramul.us/post/27126060129/from-alan-watts-on-the-tabboo-against-knowing - looks a lot like the Reality Grids section, right?




"Some say he was a holy man, others say he was a shit head." - this one brings me down to earth when I need it



"Oh well, then stop"



And so it is that we, as men, do not exist until we do; and then it is that we play with our world of existent things, and order and disorder them, and so it shall be that Non-existence shall take us back from Existence, and that nameless Spirituality shall return to Void, like a tired child home from a very wild circus.

Remnds me of Foucault 1969, surfaces of emergence and grids of specification. Very fond of The Book.

My favorite part is the one where we learned that we're all Tyler Durden.
There's no sun shine coming through her ass, if you are sure of your penis.

Paranoia is a disease unto itself, and may I add, the person standing next to you, may not be who they appear to be, so take precaution.

If there is no order in your sexual life it may be difficult to stay with a whole skin.
