* The Church of the [=SubGenius=] is a send-up of fundamental religions from Dallas, Texas that worships J.R. "Bob" Dubbs. It's a figurehead of the face of a smiling, pipe-smoking man that teaches us how to get back our "slack," which the Conspiracy has been taking from us since birth. It also explains how those who have accepted Bob into their minds will be taken to their financial rewards when the spaceships from Planet X take them away from Earth before destroying it. $25 for eternal salvation. If you don't get salvation, you get triple your money back.

** Followers of Occultism's Lore of the Old Ones are not aware that the writings of HPLovecraft were intended as fiction, and regard them as holy documents offering both wisdom and warning. The Lore of the Masons likewise misinterprets Freemasonry as an independent religion rather than a fraternal brotherhood.
