Dear Dr. Boli:  What is the Masonic symbol for a half-full laundry hamper? —Sincerely, C. Simon.

Dear Sir or Madam: Most of the symbols of Freemasonry are representations of things to do with architecture or stonework: squares, compasses, crossed sledgehammers, concrete  mixers, aluminum siding, &c. When you see one of these symbols, you may be sure that you are dealing with masons, and should take appropriate steps. Laundry hampers are the domain of the Grand United Lodge of Antient Free & Accepted Washmaids, Launderers, and Dry Cleaners. Although each Freelaunderer commonly has his own interpretation of the symbols, the usual interpretation is that the half-full laundry hamper in Freelaundry is a symbol for a half-full laundry hamper. Freelaunderers are very literal-minded.
