In the early lectures of the last century, now obsolete these questions were used as a test:
Q - Have you any keys to the secrets of a Mason?
A - Yes
Q - Where do you keep them?
A - In a bone box, that neither opens nor shuts but with Ivory Keys.
The bone box is the mouth, the Ivory Keys
the teeth. The key to the secrets is the tongue.
