That was such a secret society that even the members didn't realize they were part of it....
Nobody even told me that I'd signed up.
Seriously, it's just for fun. In truth, there's nothing very funny about the actual Illuminati... if they truly do exist, then I think we should send Baby Wiggle (The World's Smartest Tot - Mutant - Detective) after them with a loaded, stinky nappie.
I don't think there's anything funny about it at all, and IMO to even joke about these things says a lot. You know what they say about "imitation." But there is obviously more to it than that, and in fact, ONE word from the following statement proves it:
... "Update: NIR is down, too.
Their agents will probably soon get things up and running, but IHQ will continue its disruption and disinformation campaign." ...
A full admission, straight from the horsefly's mouth.
