FOT Creed and Pledge
The FOT Creed and Pledge appears on the back of the Friends of Tom official membership card. It is as follows:
I believe ... That all people are created equal, with the exception of Friends of Tom members, who have that extra special something that makes them just a little bit better than the rest. And that means me!
I pledge ...
... That I will listen to The Best Show On WFMU each and every week.
... That Tom Scharpling is the best radio personality on WFMU.
... That I will do my best to uphold the values promoted on the program.
... That I will believe and support everything that Tom says or tells me to do, no matter how implausible or potentially dangerous to my physical or mental well-being.
