Seems there is a pecking order in the Mohicanland trading guild,
and I have been so pecked. Hmmm. Not my fault that while some were scratching in the dirt looking for fallen grain off the trading wagons, and doing some tom fool funny lookin dance that produces a blizzard of feathers - mostly grey I understand - others were hanging up shingles and going to work. Chicken Dance indeed. Initiation my left foot - which since it seems not to fit limbs is to be held against me. A fowl plan methinks to impede free trade in the colonies. While innocently trying to "feather my nest" I am told that in order to be able to do so I must lie with skunks, hop around on hot coals (seems that was threatened on me once before only a stake and a rope were involved), walk a tightrope when I can only waddle side to side and am lucky to be able to do THAT with recent injuries to that self-same left foot mentioned earlier, and dance around when to do so would likely cause a 6.7 richter scale trembling to the detriment of the village. Not asking much are you?
Fie upon thee. I believe it not. Had you all done as you ask of me I would have heard from NONE of you, but would have grown hungry at the smell of you hens broiling and a-bar-b-q'ing.
Assuming you had not taken the skunk onto the hot coals WITH you of course.

: Now what is going on here? While we traders take some private time to consider new business opportunities with the old country, in slithers a new unknown trader by the name of Rooks! We are not amused. Especially so, because, to our knowledge, this one has not undergone the Mohicanland Trading Initiation Rite of Passage. We demand this be done, and proof send to us.
: The Mohicanland Trading Initiation Rite of Passage consists of the following steps:
: 1. Perform the Mohicanland Chicken Dance
: 2. Perform the Mohicanland Chicken Dance while walking on hot coals
: 3. Perform the Mohicanland Chicken Dance while walking on a tightrope
: 4. Perform the Mohicanland Chicken Dance backwards while holding a skunk
: 5. Perform the Mohicanland Chicken Dance
: If our demands are not met, we will be forced to consult with the Wa-Tah-Wa Warriorresses about further action.
: Yours sincerely,
