HUMORISTS ANONYMOUS MEMBERSHIP

                  The Loon Chapter of Humorists Anonymous
                    has a membership which is nominated
                   because of each member's addiction to:
          Absurdity, Cartoons, Comics, Fun, Humor, Idiocy, Irony,
          Jokes, Laughter, Parody, Satire, Spontaneity & Wit.

       Intermittent gatherings have occurred at the Finnish Reading Room,
       which has thus far served as headquarters. Regularly scheduled
       meetings will be possible upon the completion of the Procrastinators
       Anonymous building, a work in process, apparently. The meetings will
       be held in the St. Urho Memorial Corner of the FRR.

        WE HAVE ONLY SEVEN STEPS:

STEP 1. When in charge, ponder.
       When in trouble, delegate.
         When in doubt, mumble.
           (by Jim Loren)

STEP 2.     Expect  Nothing 
       
Expect nothing. Live frugally on surprise.
Become a stranger to need of pity.
Or, if compassion be freely given out
Take only enough.
Stop short of the urge to plead
Then purge away the need.
Wish for nothing larger than your own small heart 
Or greater than a star; Tame wild disappointment
With caress unmoved and cold.
Make of it a parka for your soul.
Discover the reason why
So tiny human midget
Exists at all
So scared unwise.
But expect nothing. Live frugally
On surprise.
     (By Alice Walker)

STEP 3. Attitude for a Political Year

     THE PEACEFUL LIFE

I used to flit about hoping
To brush up
On what everybody
Said was special.

Well, I saw the big shtoonks
Kicking the cans off
The little shtoonks - and!...
Charging them for the service.

Now, I admit that's a
Pretty good setup.
But if you don't mind I think
I'll lie this one out in my own way.
       (By Kenneth Patchen)

STEP 4. 
  Pray to God but row toward shore.
       (Russian Proverb)

STEP 5.
  Always spend a penny
  as if you were spending a dollar
  and always spend a dollar
  as if you were spending 
  a wounded eagle and always
  spend a wounded eagle as if
  you were spending the very
       sky itself.
   (By Richard Brautigan)

STEP 6.
  I don't want to know about it.
  Tell it to somebody else.
  They'll understand and make you feel better. 
   (By Richard Brautigan)

STEP 7.  KARMA REPAIR KIT: Items 1-4
 
  1.  Get enough food to eat;
          and eat it.

  2.  Find a place to sleep
      where it is quiet,
          and sleep there.

  3.  Reduce intellectual and emotional noise
      until you arrive at the silence of yourself;
          and listen to it.

  4.

   (By Richard Brautigan)
