The crowd roared with laughter when all the subterfuge was over and newly-named Chief of the Flint Spring Tribe, Stanley Bippus, was announced.
You see, Bippus had been summoned to the 53rd Annual Chief of the Flint Springs Tribe Breakfast on Thursday morning, June 16, under false pretenses. During the presentation of the Legacy Gift, outgoing Chief Bob Burnsworth presented Bippus’ charity organization, The Piddlers, with that particular accolade. It was how Bippus was present to be announced chief without his prior knowledge.
