A freemason found himself a contestant on the popular tv show “mastermind”.
After the presenter had exchanged the usual greetings and enquired his name and occupation the brother declared his “chosen specialist subject” to be “the history of Scottish Freemasonry since the foundation of Grand Lodge”
The first question was, in what year was the Grand Lodge of Scotland founded? To which the brother answered “pass”.
Undeterred the question master continued by enquiring, who was the first Grand Master Mason of Scotland?
As in the former instance the brother’s answer was “pass”.
Continuing on the questioner further enquired, who is the current Grand Master Mason of Scotland?
And for a third time the answer was “pass”.
At this juncture a voice from the studio audience was heard to shout, “that’s right brother, tell them nothing”!
