THE OREO CODE
And for those of who can’t make it down to Brighton for the fun, we offer (for your consideration as Rod Serling used to say at the start of The Twilight Zone) the odd idea that the secrets of the Great Conspiracy may be engraved on a humble Oreo cookie.
“The circle topped with a two-bar cross in which the word “OREO” resides is a variant of the Nabisco logo, and is either “an early European symbol for quality” (according to Nabisco’s promotional materials) or a Cross of Lorraine, as carried by the Knights Templar into the Crusades. Continuing the Da Vinci Code-theme, the Oreo’s geometric pattern of a dot with four triangles radiating outward is either a schematic drawing of a four-leaf clover or — cue the cliffhanger music — the cross pattée, also associated with the Knights Templar, as well as with the German military and today’s Freemasons.”
