Satan revealed

Forget yesterday’s weeping icon. The case of the Satanic toaster that was reported back in 1984 is far more impressive.

Showing a an admirable combination of fearless and thriftiness, she was willing to keep the toaster and risk its Satanic powers because it made good toast.

I always suspected that Eli Wallach was Satan, ever since he played Tuco, the Ugly in the film The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (1966).

    Most demons these days inhabit computers.

    And they really like Microsoft operating systems.

    Those wonky computers that keep crashing while not doing what the instructions say they should are…haunted.

    I think they might have been jumping to conclusions here. “Satan lives” seems to be a warning for those who don’t take the danger seriously. And the little fireworks show at the end? Clearly a warning of the hellfire that awaits them that don’t believe. I’m afraid all we have here is another run of the mill Christian miracle, just a bit more clever.

    I know, I know. It says it’s the devil. You can just overlook that; overlooking obvious facts is generally required when this sort of item is presented.

    As an aside, “It makes good toast”? Seriously? Granted, the sample size is small, but the one piece that was shown was burnt to bloody hell. (Sorry for the bad pun.)

    I changed the title but forgot to delete the old one. Then since people had commented on both, I did not want to delete it. So now we the duplicates.

    OK, now the space bar is somehow equivalent to clicking ‘submit comment’. Haunted machines, indeed.

    What I was going to say was I wondered if WordPress hadn’t just done something wonky. (Demonic software.)
