Occult Exposure

Mockery is at the heart of Satanism.

In and Out

In the ranks of our Armenian organizations, there are a significant number of self-promoters who know how to talk themselves in. Unfortunately for them, they don’t know when to stop, and eventually talk themselves out.


Subtle Alternative

The matron asked the pretty young thing at the information booth of a department store to direct her to the perfume counter. “Just walk this way,” she said, taking the lead. “Humpf!” the matron said, “if I could walk that way, I wouldn’t need perfume.”


Legal History

A federal court case concerned the attempt to cancel the citizenship of an Armenian on grounds that he did not meet the legal requirement of being a free, white person. See: http://www.leagle.com/decision/19259256F2d919_1595/UNITED%20STATES%20v.%20CARTOZIAN


A Matter of Semantics

Edo: I heard you tell Ouspo that your father was in the CPA business. How can that be? He barely finished high school.

Bedo: That’s true. What I meant by CPA was Cleaning, Pressing, Alterations.


What’s in a Name?

Bezirganian: Turkish in derivation, identified as an occupation, bezirgan is defined as a merchant, peddler.


Immortal Dialogue

U.G.’s Column: I don’t see my brother column across the page. What happened to it?

U.G.: It is now appearing in The Divine Gazette.

U.G.’s Column: Will we get to see it?

U.G.: Some day, when your author joins Tom Vartabedian in the hereafter.

‘I don’t see my brother column across the page. What happened to it?’
