Secret Societies and Clubs. 3 of 4. The Odd Fellows, the Masons, the Knights of Pythias: all  ancient, secret, solemn orders full of the pillars of the community, right?  Then what do we make of some of the super weird stuff they did, like pushing  each other around on mechanical goats or pretending to be Iroquois sachems?
