It has come to my attention that there is such a thing as the National Vegetable Society. The mind boggles.

Even wierder, there is a club called The Sons of Lee Marvin. To join you must be a male, and have sufficient resembkance to the actor that you could plausibly pass as his son.

And there is a Martin Baker Ejection Tie Club. Membership requitements for that one are pretty obvious.

So what wierd, bizarre, and downright strange clubs or societies have you come across? (and no, for the love of God, don't trot out comments like "the Green Party", or whatever - be a little more imaginative than that please!)


Note - edited for clarity.

And, equally wonderfully, there's the The Guinea Pig Club, formed in honour of Surgeon Archibald Macindo

Two that amuse me, & I know members of the latter, are;

They sell (or did....) merchandise, that is self-deprecating

The latter is; Idle Athletic Club
 
Of course, there's the marvellous https://darwinawards.com/


Not exactly a society/club, but it's (thankfully) a low membership

Not really strange - more like very exclusive.
I'm a life member of the TT Riders Association.
To be a member, you have to have qualified and actually started in a TT race in the Isle of Man.
Wow - genuinely very impressed indeed.
I struggled to keep up with a local tradesman's transit van on my circuit, never mind race !
