Now, how should I randomly order these lists?
Hmm....? If Prop 332 passes I could Shuffle them.

That's why I don't think we need a definition of Shuffle, really. You
can randomize them in any way you want, as long as it's random.

True. But how do Players know (or I prove) that the way is truly
random if it doesn't make use of the approved SORC?
I could fill out 3x5 cards, drop them in a hat and have a neighbor
kid pull them out and call that random. Is that approved?

It doesn't matter to me as long as it's reasonably random, or as long as I can't tell that it isn't. For that matter, it wouldn't particularly bother me if you just picked the order, as long as it was reasonably fair and/or humorous.
