A Conversation for Emperor Joshua Norton I of America

Emperor Norton and Discordianism

Post 1


Emperor Norton is a Saint Second Class (the highest level attainable by non-fictional characters) in the 'religion' of Discordianism (Edited Entry A258608)

The Joshua Norton Cabal (in San Francisco), one collection of Discordians, has as their slogan: "Everybody understands Mickey Mouse. Few understand Herman Hesse. Only a handfull understood Albert Einstein. And nobody understood Emperor Norton."

You can find the full text of the 'Principia Discordia' (Discordian Scripture fnord) at A536988, and it's also photocopied online in several places, so you can see the illustrations and layout and whatnot. Try a websearch.

Hmmm... I've just noticed that the Discordianism Entry ought to link back to this one. Any inhouse editors reading? I'll drop an email to Anna. Links, links, links...

Thanks for the link. Discordianism seems to make a lot of sense! I'm sure Enperor Norton I would have thought so too.
