There's no initiation,
Yes there is. I had to be tied up, blindfolded, and ball-gaged while J
took turns spanking my ass with wooden spoons. I asked them if they were just trying to trick me, but they promised me this was an official ritual sanctioned by Gene Roddenberry himself and was totally legitimate.
When they branded your arse with the IDIC symbol did they ask for a small fee to cover costs as they were a bit short right now but it's all cool and they'll totally pay you back and everything and it's all on the level honestly?
Because it's true. They totally will. I'm expecting a check in the post any day now.
Any day now.
