I'm going to have to seriously rethink some weighty matters. All this time, I have thought of kazoos as noisemakers from hell.

Apparently I was mistaken.
A tool - any tool - in the right hands can do great things.

I was once at a live concert where the band (The Bermuda Triangle) handed out kazoos to everyone, so we could toot along with one of their songs. 300 kazoos sounds like the Allied air invasion of Europe on D-Day

I'd like to take this time to point out that Lucifer and Satan are't the same.

Satan is basically Hebrew for "The Opposer". It really doesn't have any kind of evil connotations. It was used rather innocuously back then to simply designate someone who argued against a given premise. They were literally "the opposite side".

What imma say'n is, Satan ain't no bad guy. He literally the Devil's Advocate in an argument so don't be hate'n!

Honestly, this was a stellar idea and I think we should do more of it. I'd love (and would attend kazoo in hand) one of those racist Nazi rallies and just make the mockery of them that they are. Turn them into an ineffective joke - smartest thing ever. :airclap:

Sadly, Satan's PR department didn't have the same visibility as the other side. :)

(On a side note, Elaine Pagels' "The Origin of Satan" is a fascinating book that underscores much of what Worthless is saying.)

Where is our Lucifer? Seriously peeps? Where is he?

And really - I might have been as annoyed by the kazoos as the WBC people.

I was wondering the same Zaida! Where is our Lucifer??? Has he been hiding from the bad weather in Scotland? Had a kilt disaster? Got a hold of a bad Scottish egg? Maybe some bad Haggis? Come on Luc, speak up! :devilish: Seriously, we miss you.

It's God that tends to be the total dickbag in most versions of the myth. The Devil is usually either entirely sympathetic or at least has a good point.
