*slowly and quietly slides down the chimney* [if ther isn't one I'll damm well make one! quietly and silently]
*sees that nobody's noticed his presence, extracts small smoke granade and very small flashbang granade, pulls both rings and hurls them to the ground shouting:*

CA-POW, BEHOLD!

I am still confused as to why Jupiter threw those two rings on the ground and then disappeared in a flash of smoke?

They are my secret weapon, the dreaded REVERSE GRANADE!
Just pull the ring off, holding the body in the other hand, and throw said ring on the ground.

i invented them to stop the enemy from using them against me  :P

Good job the ring is still connected to the pin, otherwise they would have gone off!

This cryptic map seems to be out of date. They change every week, psn1der, you know. You DO know, don't you?
You HAVE been fully initiated haven't you?

Sadly I cannot not turn up to the Not so secret meeting or the Not so secret society.

But I can't tell you why.  If you need me, I'll be over here (potentially)

Oh, whilst I'm not here - do we have a set secret laugh?  Are we going for a cackle? A traditional Muahahahaha Or more of a Bwahahahaha

It's important to sort these things out now, just incase a not so secret service tries to stop us.

Greetings, Private and welcome.

Personally, I go for the Mwah-ha-ha-ha style, but I cannot speak for anhy other non-existent members of a society that only exists in fevered imaginations.

Help yourself to refreshments, by the way. I'd recommend the coffee, but don't eat the biscuits, they're for the dogs.

I am afraid I am not at liberty to discuss that given the present level of security.
All I can say on the matter is, "The goose with the greenest eggs flies south in June"...if you know what I mean.

Shh...don't tell everyone about them.

No, just the one. Well, we did have before June at least.

The "Muahahahaha - Ahem" is personally my Secret Snigger, I must say. However, I think the accepted form is that any style of laugh is permissible as long as it is followed by a swift "Ahem", and a beady look left and right whilst raising one eyebrow. If possible, attempt to shield your mouth with a cape or some such whilst doing the shifty glance. Please destroy this post after you have read it...

You may well be right. I noticed a lot of moons just before he departed.

Er...I don't believe that was a planetary moon, Cubinoid.  You were obviously distracted by a more...um...shall we say...fleshy sphere.  No wonder you lost track of Jupiter.

Oh! And I had already sent the dog outside.

Not that we have any dogs, of course. Or a door to the outside world. If there is an outside world, that is - I would prefer not to admit to anything today...

*opens the door from the outside world*

Excuse me, but does someone in here own the dog that just made a mess in the shop next door?
And what does this sign here at the door mean? "No meeting of not existing secret society. Do NOT enter at your own risk!"

A good question... a better one is, why the hell am I here, what's with these damned black robes, and why can I taste pickles?

Quick! He's coming to! Roll down his trouser leg, someone! Hide the pickles!

By the way, in the interests of security, I have ordered this huge brass 5 key lock that only opens when all five keys are inserted in the correct order and turned simultaneously. It has the initials of the Non-Existant-Secret-Society on it. Now there have been rumours that this incredibly secure device is not even real! Vicious rumours! Scandalous lies!  >:(

I would like to put those rumours to rest, and finally assure all of us...that 'Lock NESS' really does exist. 
Now, if anyone would like to see a photo...it is rather blurry I'm afraid...black and white...can't really make it out - a bit grainy; just there...I think...See? It was taken at night. That shape there? Or...there. That could be a corner.

;D

That's just GREAT.  We have a monster lock that no one has the keys to and the whole of Uranus knows we exist...

Next thing you know, we'll be posted on the interweb and Justin Bieber's fans will want in!   ???

However, I'll take the package and leave it just here for the next owner - it looks quite important. Good day."
