It has been said that you can meet almost anybody on Facebook. Well, imagine my surprise when I discovered that the Prince of Darkness himself has a Facebook page. Here is the link----

I must say that there is very little surprising about his friends and supporters network, nor it's proverbial mottos-- "fight fire with fire" and "you can't put out a fire with flames".

The fact that Mephistopheles is now advertising on Facebook must surely be taken as a sign of the end times, because it is a ploy of desperation, of last ditch marketing before one's enterprise goes belly up in the current economy. I found especially interesting that the Devil is trying to raise support for Bernie Madoff (with the cash). Perhaps they had been working together for a while. My suggestion whilst you are perusing Satan's Facebook page is to put on that old Rolling Stone's classic "Sympathy for the Devil" and hum along. In the end the thing that surprised me the most is that none of Gary Larson's Far Side comics about Satan and Hell appear on this site. It confirms what I have long suspected--- Satan has almost as much of a sense of humor when criticized as some TV preachers.

Not surprisingly, not nearly as well done as the facebook page of our Messiah. ;)

You think Old Scratch's enterprise is going out with the once great titans of modern industry? Funny thing about a period when society is going to ruins is that it affords plenty of opportunity to bring down a lot of people with it. So somehow, I have the feeling we haven't seen the last of Old Scratch.
