America (the book)
An illustration by eBoy (Steffen Sauerteig, Svend Smital, Peter Stemmler and Kai Vermehr) of a political graveyard for third parties gives centre spot to the Anti-Masonic Party with the epithet: "Fine, don't teach us the handshake." [pp. 110-11.] In what may be an unintentional in-joke, a pot of blue forget-me-nots rest on the gravesite.* Later, on a faux voter registration form, the question is asked : "If you are a Freemason, please enter the name under which your second "bonus" vote will be cast." [p. 123.]

* It was once widely believed that during the Hitler regime German freemasons wore a blue forget-me-not lapel pin because the masonic square and compasses was banned. Although the story has been discredited, the lapel pin continues to be popular amongst freemasons.
