Freemason Magazing NSW & ACT
I now present to you the working tools of the Festive Board. They are the Knife, the Fork, the Goblet and the Common Gabble. The Knife is to cut off all knobs and etceteras from anything edible, digestible or comestible and so to render it fit for the jaws of the expert workman. The Fork is intended to convey the materials so prepared and is placed between the two rows of pillars situated at the porch way or entrance somewhat below the temple. You will notice, brethren, that the Fork has several points or prongs. At first all are disclosed, but soon all are hidden, and the number of times this is done to the minute denotes the progress you are making in the science. The Goblet is to hold what the Stewards feel disposed to contribute, which will be thankfully received and faithfully applied. It is only to be used when there is one, and only one, Worshipful Master of the lodge present. If you see two, then you are making too much progress in the science. The Common Gabble is used to cheer and edify the workmen whilst waiting for material; also for ornamenting, adorning, embroidering and embellishing our speech, so that as members we may say of our Worshipful Master and Officers, however they work, ‘Oh Wonderful Masons’. The peculiar sign of this degree is called the ailing sign or sign of repletion. It is given by a distinctive pressure on the last two buttons of the waistcoat and denotes plenty. But as we are not all operative Masons, but sometimes very speculative Masons, we apply these tools to our morals. In this sense, the Knife teaches us to keep our portions in due bounds and the Fork teaches us to estimate and determine the limits and capacity of our distended structure. The Goblet makes us all tell the truth with a freedom and expression that is at once surprising and illuminating, whilst the Common Gabble tells us the value of goodwill, kindness and friendship. Thus, let our Knives be cutting, but not our Gabble; our Forks held in check, but not our digestions; and our Goblets filled with the spirit of brotherhood and benevolence. And moreover, brethren, whilst at the beginning we pay respect to the Crown let us not fail to deposit our appreciation with the Tyler ere we depart.’ Laughter on the Level … Did the piece above make you chuckle?
