(ANOTHER CLASSIC MEMBER BENEFIT)
Jester Nate’s Newspaper Report To The King – Inspired by the Boston University Professor of History, Joseph Boskin’s 1983 hoax where he provided an alternative explanation for the origins of April Fool’s Day to the Associated Press. He claimed to have traced the practice to Constantine’s period, when a group of court jesters jocularly told the emperor that jesters could do a better job of running the empire, and the amused emperor nominated a jester, Kugel, to be the king for a day. Boskin related how the jester passed an edict, calling for absurdity on that day and the custom became an annual event. Boskin explained the jester’s uses humor to put serious matters into perspective…which is a vital need when making decisions for the kingdom. An Associated Press article brought this alternative explanation to the public’s attention via their news services, not knowing that Boskin had invented the entire story as an April Fool’s Joke itself (and were not made aware of this until some weeks later).
In particular, Jester Nate will pick up a couple of newspapers and report on the newsworthy business, government and defense dealings (and documents) mentioned within. Dealings such as:
- internal policies, procedures, protocols and rules
- externally promoted claims, declarations, decrees & promotions
- laws and government regulations/legislation
- purchase orders, agreements and contracts
- technical specifications
- industry standards and codes
- insurance policies.
You will get a special report somewhere around April Fool’s Day, which covers the sensationalized Front pages (which are usually designed to attract the greater public – sales that is, right?). (Of note, Gold Executive Members will get Part 2 which covers pages 4-5 which are usually focused on the business and diplomatic community – and a back page sports bonus, if lucky.
All the major newspapers could equally be targeted – NO ONE WILL BE SAFE. This includes, but not limited to:
- The Guardian (UK)
- The Wall Street Journal (USA)
- The New York Times (USA)
- The Washington Post (USA)
- China Daily (China)
- The Times of India (India)
- The Sydney Morning Herald (Australia)
- The Asahi Shimbun (Japan)
- Dawn (Pakistan)
- Zaman (Turkey)
- Handelsblatt (Germany)
- Les Échos (France)
- The Moscow Times (Russia)
- O Globo (Brazil)
As a bonus, ‘cause I’m feeling like a beer as I write this, combining two club benefits here, this one and the Guest Passes at Local Chapter Meetings. When we run such a meeting in Austin, Texas, I will buy you and your guests a beer or two at the “Jester King Craft Brewery” just because they’re as serious about their ‘Jester King’ beer as I am about this ‘Jester Newspaper Report To The King’. We will of course, be reviewing the regulatory regimes that they brew under – starting with USDA Certified Organic requirements, detailed below. Here’s a little bit from them to salivate over.
Jester King Craft Brewery, located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, Jester King is an authentic farmhouse brewery committed to making artisan ales of great depth and character. Like the small, farmhouse breweries that inspired us, we seek to embrace nature and local terroir in our brewing, giving our beers a true sense of place. We draw water from our well at the brewery to make our beer and at times call upon naturally occurring yeast from the Texas Hill Country to shape our unique flavors. We use as many organic ingredients as possible with the majority of our beer being USDA Certified Organic. We do not rush beer to market, but instead allow it to mature naturally – often in oak barrels – prior to re-fermentation in the bottle, cask, or keg.
If you’re salivating right now, then go ahead and check out their beer selection at http://jesterkingbrewery.com/beers/
