    Fine works of art often have sparkling little ironies in their details which make you wonder if the artist intended them, they were the gift of The Muse or they just sort of happened.

    The Hubbard figure, Lancaster Dodd in Anderson's excellent film "The Master" has Master of Ceremonies for a title and signs his missives "L.D. MoC.

    Can anyone tell me what familiar Scientology term also has the initials "M.O.C."?

    Sure,
    Masturbator Obsessive & Compulsive
    That was a nick used by Ron's tech terminal entourage who were in charge of his OT progress

    For example, one would say to the other:

    " hey Joe, did you CSed the MOC folder????"
     
  3. I told you I was trouble

    I told you I was trouble Suspended animation

    I hate to be the one to break this to you but that abbreviation was only ever used for your folder.

    :giggle:

    Jeez,
    You're in great shape sis :D
    I hate to be the one who breaks it, (because of my legendary humbleness), but this acronyme written on my folders actually meant:

    Mother Of the Chapel

    But that's something mystical, that only a few knew.
    :p

    @Clay Pigeon is surely aware that "Mockey" is a racial slur.

    No...

    I wasn't aware of that.

    Who does it slur and where i it used?

    I thought most people would pick up on the allusion to The Mickey Mouse Club

    Which would of course make it somewhat of a slur against all the mickey mouse horsecrap that happens in CoS

    Getting back to the OP...

    What familiar scio term would be abbreviated M.O.C. and make Anderson's use of it a delightful irony?

    Merchant of Chaos, but it was never abbreviated like that.

    Isn't there a similar Capt Bill abbreviation for some evil entity or cluster thereof? I can't be bothered to dig it up but it seems vaguely familiar. Ah ... MOCO, isn't it?

    Bingo Paul.

    I'm not familiar with Cap'n Bills oeuvre and don't plan on it. He spoke once at FCDC while I was there and I was less than impressed by what appeared to be a fat overbearing blowhard. Indeed most of what I saw come off The Apollo was somewhat less than inspiring

    I doubt that. But google it If you really don't know.

    I think you should change the title of the thread. It looks really bad in the public area where everyone can see it. You can change it using "Thread Tools," if time hasn't expired. If you'd just drop the "K-E-Y" I'd consider that sufficient.

    I googled it and it's colliquial in southern california.

    As the title is M-O-C K-E-Y and not "mockey" I see no reason to change it
