If you watch every State of the Union Address since it’s been filmed and available on tape, you’ll see that halfway through–exactly halfway through–the President always says the same word. Most say it under their breath during the standing ovations, but some are forced to work it into the speech itself.

    @xD

    Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.) (Order of the Temple of the East, or the Order of Oriental Templars) is an international fraternal and religious organization founded at the beginning of the 20th century. Originally it was intended to be modelled after and associated with Freemasonry,[1] but under the leadership of Aleister Crowley was reorganized based on the Law of Thelema as its central religious principle.

    Use google…

    This is a really common (and mediocree) pasta, but I have never read the last paragraph before.

    Doesn’t make it much better actually =(

    I always kinda liked this one for the mystique around it…I’ve seen the “peony” bit before, though, and it frankly ruins the feeling.

    But without that last paragraph, it’s a solid, staple pasta.

    I agree wholeheartedly, the part about the flowers is nonsense, most ridiculous nonsense at that. I’ve listened to a few speeches since I read this…from the current administration, as well as others by JFK and Nixon. I still don’t know what it is…but it made me shiver, nonetheless. It felt like a welcome to an invading presence from beyond.

    Do you think it would be best if I cut out the last paragraph and just left it at that?

    @ PHONE

    Yes, fer sure.
    The first paragraph is mysterious, unsettling.
    The second paragraph basically makes no sense.

    I’d take the sound that pronouncing the word would create, seal it into a glass jar, and crush it under several tons of concrete.

    Edited the second paragraph out. I agree, it sounds like it was kind of mashed on there, like the first paragraph had been written by one person and the Peony BS was added on later.

    Eh. I like it better now but it dosen’t really leave much to be creepy. Interesting sure but there’s no consequence to the word.

    I think it’s not as good without the second paragraph. It just feels too… short, I guess. :/

    ScoolyardHero, it wasn’t worth reading tbh. It was jut some b/s that someone tried to add to it to make the story scarier. They failed.

    I dunno, if the president kept saying “the” or “America” under his breath, I’d be kind of wigged out.
