Every waking minute of every day those of us at the Mushroom Clan are asked by friends and Romans alike a striking question..."Exactly how doth one becometh part of thy Mushroom Clan?"
Well we're sorry to announce that no set standards are in place when considering an individual for Clan membership*. We challenge all those who desire admittance to our prestigious organization to follow the guidance of the Spirit Children inside them and allow none but the gods of Earth and Sky to determine their fate. For as the Greek Stoic and Honorary Clan Member Epictetus once said, "...every man must get to heaven in his own way."
If you find yourself still perplexed and feel a need to truly understand what it takes to be one of the best, here's an example of a successful application for admission we chose in 2004, submitted in portfolio format:
Clan Member Big Rainbow-Maker, formerly Little Blackfoot of the Sioux tribe.
*Membership is restricted to males, a principle based on the longstanding trend of men going out and changing the world on the daily while women have lazily stayed in the home, cleaning and giving birth while failing to contribute to society or significantly alter the course of human history for the better.
