which master does he serve?

Today was 6.6.6. All my Satanist friends were celebrating. I thought it was stupid, especially as there’s recent evidence which would suggest that the mention of “666” in the Bible was based on a bad translation, but I bit my lip and let them have their witchy fun. I wasn’t expecting anything truly evil to happen, but I guess I kind of kept my eyes open all day, just in case… Then, at 11:55 tonight, just when I thought we’d almost made it through unscathed, I learned that the pony-tailed blogger we know as Murph had been hired as a city planner here in Ypsilanti. I don’t know that this, in and of itself, is terribly evil, but, just in case things go badly on his watch, I wanted to have it on the record that he climbed aboard under the auspices of his dark master, Beelzebub.

(Best of luck with the new position, Murph.)

    Careful – If you get much closer to blowing my cover, I’m going to have to rezone your backyard for a needle-trading clinic.

    He’s only been in power a few short minutes, and already he’s bullying. Clearly evil. (As if we needed further evidence after the mention of the ponytail.)

    It hides the scar where the evil was pumped in.

    I thought that was where they extracted your soul.

    Well, they have to make room for the evil somehow, right?

    Welcome to the “team”, Murph … Richard Murphy, I take it. I’m on the HDC, so we’ll be seeeing each other at least twice a month. Again, welcome.

    Stupid eh?
    You missed the point. It’s kinda like playing Rap music to your white friends to annoy them. I see my “Enjoy Satan” T-shirt worked on you my Christian friend. I also thought only good things could happen on 6.6.6. Like Murph being hired or the launch of the new Ypsi farmers market. The weather was at least nice. Thanks Satan!

    Why don’t you write about the REAL problems of Ypsilanti — like THE CHICKEN BAN?

    Were you listening in on my conversation yesterday at the brewery, Ubu? I was sitting with Amanda (from Growing Hope) and we were talking about keeping chickens. She and I both like the idea and think it would be a good thing for Ypsi (assuming we could keep them Bird Flu free).

    And, I was just kidding about the “stupid” thing, Andy. Please don’t retaliate by ceremonially slaughtering my chickens.

    I’m vegan. Stupid is better then dumb, cause I’m not!

    Is the Corner Brewery now just called “the brewery”? I didn’t get the memo.

    Dude, “the brewery” is, like, so last night. It’s now just “the ‘ry.”

    Try to keep up, wouldja?

    Vegans are the greatest people in the world. I used to be one. In my opinion, they are the only people who should be allowed into heaven. I loathe myself jumping off the wagon… That’s why I can’t be friends with you any more, Andy. It’s too much of a reminder.
