This Day In Discordian History: June 11, 1970

According to the June 11, 1970 edition of The San Francisco Chronicle:

“Two willowy blondes walked nude down Market street yesterday, hand-in-hand with a naked dwarf who had a peg-leg and a beard.

“The three of them, at the height of the evening rush-hour traffic, commanded considerable attention.

“They said they were soldiers in the Om United New World Nude Brigade, whose objective is to free mankind is to free mankind from 6000 years of sexual guilt…”

This public display was all part of a “Go Nude Now” campaign sponsored by the OM United New World Nude Brigade (OUNWNB), overseen by the great religious leader, Baba Om, according to the group’s propaganda.

Greg Hill (under the guise of Dr. Ignotum P. Ignotius) sent five pope cards to Baba Om, “the girls and the little fellow, plus one extra on general principles (to accord with the Law of Fives)…”

In addition to a sermon on the benefits of chaos, Doc Iggy congratulated “OUNWNB for your masterful positively–directed-disorder, by parading about the streets baldassed naked, with magnificent effect!”
