I love that the tribute survived the ravages of the 18th, 19th and 20th Centuries. I particularly liked the final paragraph in black text from the last link, but I won't blow the ending for people.

It is a great story, but those Tradition in Action people give me the creeps.

Whoa. Cool tradition, but those people are some kinda scary.
