A man had been convicted of murder and was about to be hanged. 
Just before the death sentence was about to be carried out, the hangman asked the man if he had any last words.
"Yes" came his reply, "I hate Masons!" 
"Why do you hate Masons?" asked the hangman. 
"The man I killed was a Mason," explained the murderer, "the sheriff who hunted me down was a Mason, the Prosecutor who tried my case was a Mason, the Judge who presided at the trial was a Mason, and all of the men on the jury who found me guilty and said I should be hanged were Masons!"
"Is that all?" asked the hangman. 
"Yes" replied the convicted murder. 
"Then you will advance one step with your left foot......"
