Who knew being metal (or a Texas Longhorns fan) could actually be evil?

No, no, no. Let me help you.

Metal

vs

I don't know WTF this is but it is one of the least metal things I've ever seen.

Bush is not metal. Cheney could be some sort of fucked up Norwegian Black Metal or something like that.

Note that the thumb tucked in is the TX Longhorns deal, and the thumb out is the "worshipping the devil" sign.

And that the devil doesn't actually exist.

And what’s the deal with the photo of John Kerry in the last link? It just looks like he’s got his hands up. And standing in front of a sign that says “UNTRY”, which, while I know what word it’s supposed to be, is pretty funny given who we’re talking about.

Oh, it’s the three 6s. Got it.

I dunno, TheOnlyCoolTim, if Satan is the embodiment of all that is loathsome, the guy who's just poking into the lower right corner of the picture could very well be the devil. His name is Brad. His mom drove him to the concert. He's going to get a lip ring this summer, as soon as he saves up the money. He's EVIL and his friends are totally metal.

The Texas/metal connection.

being metal

what a thing to aspire to

You don't aspire to be metal, you just do it or you don't.

Some of those supposed "devil signs" are clearly instances of either:

1) extended-pinky-finger-while-wagging-index-finger-to-add-emphasis

2) rapid-effeminate-half-wave-with-the-two-inner-fingers

3) "look-at-the-wittle-doggy!"-amuse-the-out-of-frame-baby [Yasser Arafat]

Maybe Laura Bush is just really into Dio.

Wrong. Thumb out is ASL for "I love you." Devilhorns are thumb in.

I aspire to be metal in that someday I hope to be a robot.

(Unless you meant out towards the front, in which case, yes, you're right.)

Actually, any Texas A&M alum (or fan) could have told you long ago that the Longhorns were pure evil.

"Unless you meant out towards the front, in which case, yes, you're right"

I meant however GWB is showing it is evil, and every other way is inert.

k?

The shot of bush with his hand over his tummy at the 9/11 memorial is priceless...

jesus-is-saviour.com made it Vincent Flander's list of Worst Non/Not-for-Profit Web Sites of 2007, but after perusing jesus-is-saviour, I hold that it is a joke site. I wrote Flanders saying as much and his denial didn't convince me.

Oh dear, even the priests at Ladybird's funeral are Satanists making that Illuminati signal.

he shot of bush with his hand over his tummy at the 9/11 memorial is priceless...

Hadn't seen that in years. ouch, it is funny. Such a dufus! Truly cringeworthy.

Always loved Italian hand gestures.

When did American Sign Language become the trend for pop stars gesturing I love you? But in gangsta it means Latin King3. And in early commodity trader it meant 400.

Evil icon.

Oooh, that baby's under the influence of Satan. and everybody knows motorcyclists are evil anyway.

huh, inspired by this post to futz around looking at hand signals, came across this odd one of Hillary shaking hands with somebody who is making the hand signal that he's under coercion.

So OU's hand gesture is not just anti-Texas, but anti-Satan? Awesome.

man the "evil" link is pretty lame. they have the dio cover and then don't point out that when you flip the dio logo over, it says "devil". weak.

nickyskye, stop giving our codes away to any terrorists with a laptop. they are following us home when we leave iraq, that is bad enough.


and set yer clocks back, everyone.

This is the Texas fight song:
The eyes of Texas are upon you,
All the live long day.
The eyes of Texas are upon you,
You cannot get away.
Do not think you can escape them,
At night, or early in the morn'.
The eyes of Texas are upon you,
'Till Gabriel blows his horn!

Could their desire for a theocratic police state completely devoid of privacy be any more obvious?

What's even more intriguing about that picture is the fellow to Bush's right who is clearly reaching for a gun.

This is serious guys. The high council convened to address 'Metal hand abuse' 2 years ago.

At least Robert Gates, current Secretary of Defense, former President of Texas A&M can cancel out the devil voodoo.

I sometimes wonder how people go through life without, like, noticing things.

May be we (I went to UT) should change the song:
