You can't really see it very clearly in the picture, but the object in the centre is a bread roll with a rainbow flag protruding, bearing the legend "Society of the Year", stuck on in candle wax. You see, I was at the Trinity College Central Societies Committee Awards tonight; the LGBT society (for which I am treasurer) was entered in a few categories, but didn't, in the end, win anything. The bread roll was our own self-made trophy.
Now, originally, two candles were placed in front to draw attention to the text. Feeling bored, I put a chocolate in between them (one of the event sponsors having put a small box of chocolates at each place). The end result looked a little like a shrine to the chocolate, so I have decided to attempt to bring a cult of the chocolate in as the LGBT society's official religion.
This will mean, for a start, electing a priest every year along with all the other officers; it will be the priest's duty to keep the fires ever-burning, and to protect the chocolate. I would like to build in a few bizarre restrictions for the priest, similar to those placed on, say, the Roman Flamen Dialis (an extraordinarily restrictive office apparently at one time occupied by Julius Caesar the dictator). So far, the only one I've been able to come up with specifies that the priest must not partake of non-chocolate confectionery. Suggestions?
Of course, by the end of the night the question was more or less moot, as the ever-burning fires had died down and the chocolate had been devoured (even the bread roll, I think, did not survive). Still, it could be kept on as an Ark of the Covenant-type item.
This is exactly why I shouldn't post things on the Internet after coming home from a night out, of course.
