Rev. DrJon

Rev. DrJon aka His Wholiness the Rev. DrJon aka Dr. Jon Swabey was announced as one of two recipients of the Order of the Pineapple with Miley Spears on 18 January 2014. He is the only honoree to decline the award, citing Groucho Marx who said, "I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member."

BackgroundEdit

His Wholiness the Rev. DrJon compiled what is probably the 21st century's first Discordian tome Apocrypha Discordia which included both new and old-but-previously-unknown Discordian material. He also retrieved an early version (thought at the time to be the first) of Principia Discordia from the John F. Kennedy archives. DrJon was chosen to write an outroduction for what was the first hardback edition since 1976 of Principia Discordia.

After the Roman Catholic Church released a document on 20 April 2007 that some claimed discounted the concept of Limbo, DrJon released a report claiming Limbo for Discordians on 23 April 2007. (The Catholic church had not, in fact, discounted the concept of Limbo, but stated that it was possible that the unbaptized who died as infants might enter Heaven. "The Hope of Salvation for Infants Who Die without Being Baptized" does not negate nor affirm the idea of unbaptized infants being in Limbo).

AcceptanceEdit

"Dearest,

"Thank you for your touching recognition, however it is with great regret that, due to the St. Groucho Principle, i must sadly decline the honour of 'The Order of the Pineapple'."

"Yrs, &etc., Martin Luther Blissett Jr.
