Default Billy a Freemason?

On Fallon Billy had a freemason badge. What's up with that? Is it for publicity or something.

I want to be in a secret society. I want to credibly claim to know shit that's occurring at the highest levels. Let's look up how to join them... hmm, nope, invite-only. Invite-only. Invite-only. Billionaires only. Royal blood required and invite-only. Shit. Freemasons, my backup school... ah! I just need to shoot them an email! They count as secret, right? They were doing secret shit like... hundreds of years ago? Must still be dialed in to the upper echelons...

I remember some years back Dave Navarro posting on his blog about how he had just become 33rd degree. I’m sure if he is Billy probably is too.

Yeah I was pretty shocked seeing that.

Billy seems like the type who would buy into all the post-DaVinci code hyped up BS about how Masons are part of a nefarious conspiracy to rule the world, and who would most definitely NOT want to associate with them.

So it could either be a kind of "fuck you" to Freemasonry (by wearing a symbol which must be earned)...or he's really actually into it.

BTW Freemasons do not encompass just rich, elite-blooded folks. I know some who happen to be black (and also white), and do professional skilled but working class occupations. It's just a social fraternal organization. It's not what is was 100 years ago in the deep south, with only WASP males of English/Scots background controlling county governments.

Itís cool because of the history behind it, the founding fathers, the mysticism, the map behind the Declaration of Independence, Nick Cage, etc.
itís stupid and cheesy because itís a current group, mainly composed of old farty white men that meets once a month.

He may as well have a rotary club patch on there.

Unless he, or Linda strawberries, doesnít understand or grasp that fact. A random patch of anything would have been better because now it looks like heís commercial and in a legit group like the Kiwanis club or the nra or something cheesy. Itís lame and cringe.

Heís pretty resentful of being seen as a 90s man actually. He thinks he can become relevant in a modern sense.

Isn't Masons just an excuse for old guys to wear funny hats and get together and drink on weeknights?

Wonder if he’ll be wearing a Knights of Columbus patch on his tour dress.
