The Lord may move in mysterious ways, but it may be tough to beat one of the surreptitious stunts Satan recently pulled off in Vancouver.
On Sept 9, a 9-foot-tall statue of the Devil appeared on a pedestal in a small park next to a busy highway in the Canadian city. The pedestal had been empty since a statue of Christopher Columbus was removed from it and relocated ten years ago.
Apparently a creative prankster with a wonderfully wicked sense of humor decided that the pedestal finally needed a new occupant, and settled on Beelzebub himself. The statue bore Satan's trademark horns, yellow eyes, and pointy tail, and welcomed onlookers with the "horned hand" gesture popular among Heavy Metal fans. His Infernal Majesty also greeted admirers with a decidedly more shocking salute - a massive, crimson-fleshed erection.
The horned and horny statue remained erected and erect for several hours. The statue shocked, amused, and confused many locals before finally being removed by workers under orders from city officials.
City officials stated
that they are currently "holding the statue until the owner comes to collect it." Even with that outcome unlikely to occur, the Dark Lord may still have another chance for unholy reign. One fan of the statue wants it for his "Odditorium
" display, while others are petitioning
the city to give the Devil his due and return him to the park.
