While taking my usual walk this morning, I came upon this interesting pattern formed by soil swept across the sidewalk, doubtless by water from a sprinkler. The streamlined shapes were very suggestive of tongues of flame...
There is an old movie called 'Poor Devil', starring Sammy Davis, Jr. as an incompetent, low-ranking demon who must prove himself to Lucifer by winning a soul for Hell, and Jack Klugman plays the hapless loser who accidentally summons him. Davis materializes before the shocked Klugman and explains that when Klugman thoughtlessly uttered a blasphemous phrase, he opened himself up to Hell's influence. When Klugman protests that it was a very common curse that people pronounce all the time, Davis smiles and informs him "And we got 'em ALL down there".
WHERE HAMLET'S FATHER STAYS DURING THE DAY
My friends and I sometimes joke that "You know we're going to Hell, dontcha" after we've done something slightly naughty. Maybe it's best that we stop saying it.
