The Sons of Sciatica
When Slightly got a job in a minor government research department he was afraid
that he would not fit in with his colleagues.
However after a few months a senior manager called him into his office and said
that he could see that Slightly was a decent chap and would fit in nicely. Slightly
was invited to join a special club for special people with a special sign.

by which all Sons may recognise each other
The Sons of Sciatica is a global organization set up for the benefit of all members
and the world in general.
As all members are Sons of Sciatica all members are seen as brothers and therefore
must treat each other as such. "A brother in need is a brother indeed" as
the club motto goes - and all that one brother has must be fully and freely shared
with other brothers including information, money, wives etc. In order to protect
the world from dangerous people the collective has made it their business to make
sure that all positions of power are filled by decent, trustworthy members.
Slightly managed to get the rest of LTJ to become members. Here they can be
seen in the traditional dress as worn on ceremonial occasions
There was some controversy in the press recently when it was claimed that the leader
of the Sciaticarians had convictions for arson, kidnapping, GBH, illegal hypnosis of a
minor, assaulting a badger, impersonating a priest, impersonating a police officer, terrorism,
illegal possession of mind bending drugs, high-jacking a fighter plane and treason in five
separate Central American states.
However his criminal record reveals only a parking ticket fine which was overturned on
appeal when the traffic warden who was to testify jumped off a bridge the day before the
trial in completely unsuspicious circumstances.
All hail our esteamed and noble leader Barabus; son of Barabi, son of Scitica the Masterful.

of greeting and a mark of respect.
Barabus keeps the Skull of Sciatica with him at all times (he sleeps with the
Sacred Skull under his pillow at night). He does this or three reasons. To remind
us of our leader, to remind us of the sacrifice we must all be prepared to make if
necessary and to remind us of how we’ll end up should we ever be unhinged enough to
wish to leave the breathren.
Naturally, as a matter of precaution, we have all signed our own death warrants
which makes it perfectly legal that if a member decides to leave, the club may remove
his cranium with a hacksaw.
