Yeah, the "semiChrist" was a good one.

One of the funniest 'devil' things I can remember was on an episode of the old TV series "Lost in Space".

Dr. Smith disappears from the surface of the planet they are currently on, and finds himself in a gloomy, reddish cave, with lots of torches mounted on the cave walls. He then finds himself standing in front of a guy dressed in a stereotypical devil's costume - all red, with a cowl, etc....

Dr. Smith: Who...who are you?!?!

"Devil": (speaking very casually) Now who the devil do you think I am? And where in Hades to you think YOU are?!?!

Devilish laughter follows, along with a patented Dr. Smith scream.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Well since they didn't have the arabic numbers we use today when the book of revelation was written the mark of the beast should actually be DCLXVI instead of 666 anyway.

Here's my shiny happy Satan story...about 15 years ago, I went to see the movie "Prince of Darkness" (Satanic horror flick) with my best friend. We each got a Coke, and we split some nachos; the total came to $6.66. A week later, I was at a Denny's with another friend. We each got a Coke, and we split an order of nachos. I told him that a week ago, at a movie about Satan, I shared the same order with the first friend, and it came to $6.66. About 1/2 hour later, the Denny's waitress brought our check...at Denny's, the Cokes were cheaper than at the movie theater...the nachos were more expensive...and yep, the check was for $6.66 again.

OK, here's what happened. Woman gives birth on 6/6/06 after being in labor for 6 days. Baby boy born at 6:59 weighing in at 6 lbs. 6 oz. and given the name....(are you ready?)...Damien.

Link is at the Drudge Report today...I won't post it here as I don't know how long the link will be, but it's an English Paper "The Mirror".

Good to see somebody brave enough to give birth on 6/6/06.. Smile Every news organization ran stories about how parents across the country were inducing labor on 6/5. One new father interviewed by CNN said when his first child was born on 1/1, his friends teased him about missing the deadline for tax deduction; they had to induce labor because he couldn't bear the endless teasing if his new baby was born on 6/6. ..Sounds to me like his friends are a-holes. Smile

A little late, but from The Onion:

A pregnant woman in England is trying to get her hospital to induce labor so the baby will not be born on 6/6/06. What do you think?
