    It's funny, I know all about the "turtle." I know the "ritual" and the sign and the handshake and everything! But I don't know any turtles that can officially "confer" the degree on me, lol

    I am an official Snapping Turtle. This honor was conferred on me by the son of the man officially credited with developing the Turtle organization. So ... I can confer, if you'd like.

    Ummm ... I don't think they DO charters. But I'd be happy to confer anytime you're in my neighborhood.

    Indeed, the alcoholic beverage of one's choice is a part of the GTM. (Great Turtle Mystery). But the degree MUST be conferred in person. No other alternative available.

    The Turtles are a vast secret organization with members in the highest levels of government and business. The goal of the Turtles is what is called, "A New Whirled Order" (it must always be capitalized and quoted, btw). The Turtles control the banks and have stolen the gold from Fort Knox. What is left at Fort Knox is actually lead painted gold. The Turtles are most definitely after you. I am a Turtle, so I know this stuff :p
