Satan confirms quote about Suicide being on Sandusky watch
It was especially odd to see Satan at the Firecracker Press' 10th anniversary party yesterday.
I don't carry the internet around on my phone, so before leaving the house I typical check in on my social media networks for news and gossip. As I was leaving for Cherokee Street yesterday, everywhere I looked I found the headline, "Lawyer says Sandusky on suicide watch."
I gave that some thought. For a moment, I saw it from the other side.
So I wisecracked on Twitter, "Satan says Suicide is on Sandusky watch."
That sounded more like it.
Once I found myself in the company of actual people, I tried this line out on people. I embellished it in grotesque ways I'll choose not to publish at this time. I got a few grim laughs.
Then Satan himself appeared.
What in the Sam Hell? When do you have a fake Satan quote on the tip of your tongue and find the Source himself to check your facts with?
So I pulled Satan to the side, ran through it all, and asked him to confirm the quote.
Satan nodded, gravely, in the affirmative.
