The Mary Celeste Society

The book entitled 40 Strange Groups is currently on sale at a discount in time for Christmas. If you thought 2020 was odd then read this book to see what the world could be like if certain groups did exist.

For example:

Do YOU have trouble putting IKEA furniture together? Yes? Here’s a Buddhist group who can help

40 odd groups that are surrounded in mystery. Little is known about them, hence the shortness of the book and the low price.

Buddhists for Peaceful Ikea Furniture Assembly (BPIFA)

Buddhists belonging to this group can be phoned by purchasers of Ikea flat-pack furniture and asked to come along to the purchaser’s home to provide a peaceful environment when the furniture is being put together. BPIFA have discovered a more harmonious environment promotes more peaceful furniture assemblage and encourage IKEA customers to use their services.

The BPIFA even bring along spare Allen keys just in case there aren’t enough provided. One satisfied customer, George T Trent of Oklahoma said, “Without those Buddhists, why that furniture might still be unmade to this day – those Oms really calmed me down, especially when I felt like shooting the instructions with ma shotgun. Those Buddhists really made things easy. They were non-threatening in every way, but I am not sure I could wear orange all day.”
