Maladay, October 24, is an important day for observers of the anarchic religion, Discordianism.
Discordianism recognizes chaos, discord, and dissent as valid and desirable qualities.
Followers believe that every man, woman and child is a Pope and may be issued with an official card recognising them as a Pope of Discordia. The rights of a Pope include, but are not necessarily limited to, invoking infallibility at any time, including retroactively.
Amongst many other things, Discordians believe all things happen in fives, or are divisible by or are multiples of five, or are somehow directly or indirectly appropriate to five. Discordians are forbidden to eat hot dog buns, or to believe everything they read.
One growing subsect of Discordians believe that the entire religion was made up just to take the piss out of wikipedia.
