SECTION 8. THOU SHALL BE HONEST AND HUMBLE THYSELF BEFORE THE SUFFICIANADOS
Subsection 1. HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY
Cross section A. Our society is built upon a great moral tradition. When George Washington was asked "who cut down the cherry tree?" he proudly said "I did!"... The sixteenth president was know as "Honest Abe"... Oliver North, when asked "who was responsible?" replied "he was!" ( or was it dead men tell no tales?)... This great banner of truth is displayed proudly by the sufficianados, who never attempt to deceive, mislead, or trick the callers around the world in the sufficianados reaffirm their sacred vow to the truth... "We don't, We don't, we don't mess around!! Hey!" And any caller who doesn't adhere to this motto, will be blotto!
Cross section B. If any caller attempts to mislead, misdirect, or intentionally phrases his questions as to entice the sufficiadados into an incorrect answer he ( or she) will receive a gift of enlightenment from the sufficianados. A 40 Megaton gift.
Cross section C. It is a clear infraction to... ask who won an event relating to horses and then to try and give the horses name as being the correct answer.
Cross section D. It is a clear infraction to... ask a question about a player or even that occurred in spring training, exhibition, or pre-season, and the reveal that the player never made it to the majors or regular season. For example... asking the question " What player from Ohio, played on a NBA championship team and was also a first round professional draft choice?" IS A TRICK QUESTION! Because the call hasn't revealed that the professional football ranks he is referring to is the CANADIAN Football league.
Cross section E. Let's face it... if your really stupid enough to ask a trick question you get what you deserve. BYE!
Subsection 2. HUMILITY IS NEXT TO CLEANLINESS WHICH IS NEXT TO GODLINESS
Cross section A. In every profession there are "hot dogs", those players who attempt to make up for their lack of skill, by shooting off their mouths. So too, do certain callers attempt to place themselves at a level above that of the sufficianados themselves. Remember my friends, the difference between "confidence" and "cockiness" is the ability to back it up. And if your a "hot dog" you could find yourself char-broiled.
Cross section B. It is proper to humble thyself before the sufficiandados, showing respect for their wisdom, and reverence for their experience. This applies even to "quest sufficianados", the "gummies" and the "sales gerbils". These individuals have undertaken the challenge... they have dedicated their very lives ( or at least a few minutes) to becoming "black belt" suffinianados. And you'll live a lot longer if your nice to them. It is clearly a violation for the caller to take a "combative" nature in addressing the sufficianados.
Cross section C. It is the responsibility of the host or moderator, to verify that the proper decorum is used when addressing the sufficianados. As the keeper of the sacred flame, you should show this individual the utmost respect, for it is he whose finger rests upon the trigger.
