: 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,
: On behalf of the Mohicanland Trading Guild,
: The Canadian and Dutch Trader
Open Letter to Would-Be Traders:
I wish to support my Esteemed Colleagues, the Canadian and Duthc Traders, in their Establishment of Rules for Rites of Initiation. For it must be said, not all Persons are fit to be traders in Mohicanland, a point to which I myself can testify, based upon mine own Experience one year past.
I wish, moreover, to clarify one point about The Skunk in said Rules for Rites of Initiation. The Skunk must be Alive. For I have seen the French Trader in his tent with a Dead Skunk and clearly he had mis-understood the Rules, was attempted to thwart the Rules of Rites of Initiation through a Ruse (can the French Trader be trusted? one asks), or merely felt something -- er, special -- about lying on the floor next to a Dead Skunk. In any event, let it be known that the Skunk Must be Alive whilst one does Perform the Mohicanland Chicken Dance backwards while holding a Skunk.
