One hundred and eighty five show up to roast incoming Grand Master Leonard "pork chop" Buffington. The Atlanta masonic Center was packed on Friday, October 16, 2009, as well wishers squeezed into the dining hall to watch a parade of dignitaries, friends and relatives as they fired off their best jokes, props and anecdotes. Jeremy Conlon, pictured in character, organized the roast as a means of raising money for The Grand Master's Traveling Fund for next year. By all accounts, Jeremy's routine was hilarious. Judging from his picture (left), his delivery was probably like that of a strange hybrid of Rod Serling and Johnny Carson. We expected nothing less.
