WHEREAS, This proclamation does hereby announce to an unwary and oblivious public this charter, formation, founding, and congealment of The Cartoonists’ League of Absurd Washingtonians, otherwise to be known as: C.L.A.W. view press release
WHEREAS, Our mission is to gather talented Washington State cartoonists of great skill and humongous egos in frequently secluded gatherings during which the secrets and mystic arts of their sublime craft are practiced. Behind closed doors and away from prying eyes, the most pointless and silly of rituals will be freely indulged, much to the shame of our spouses and children. Oh, and we will give a scholarship to an art student, probably a very meager one, while we wait to welcome our Robot Overlords.
WHEREAS, Our membership, self-selected by the membership swears to adhere to the Constitution of the CLAW, to follow the Practices set forth in the Semi-Sacred Book of Rituals, to abide by the Rulings of the Council of Four Eyes, and to adopt such Amendments as set forth in its Constitution.
THEREFORE, So say we, in full and wholesome agreement by the scrivening below of the names of…
The Founding Council of Four Eyes
