Having never heard of RAOB, I had to have a look at the site Andy kindly posted. What a gas! The language of the explanation of Buffaloism seems itself antediluvian, if sentence length is any indication -
"Before going on to an explanation of the various things to which we apply this
gospel of good fellowship, it seems to me to be a good place to advise a searcher
after the truth, who has absorbed this rather tentative and possibly inadequate
picture of the sprit in which we work; if, in the reading he finds himself on
unfamiliar ground, with no touch of responsive warmth in his heart; it might be as
well for him and for us if he gives up the vision of hidden bonanzas in buffaloism;
there is nothing in it of what the commercial mind would call 'PROFIT'."
I wonder if the bowl is considered one of the hidden bonanzas. That's excellent that JP could identify it! (Sorry to hear about your emergency dental work, JP. Ouch.
