"Honor system with the Devil. How did Johnny get sucked into that one?"
I love McSweeney's
I love the silly lists. They remind me of those pre-teen late night conversations you have with your sister in the bedroom that you share while under the influence of the punchy atmosphere produced by stupid SNL skits.
I particularly enjoy this list because it concerns "The Devil Went Down to Georgia". I remember that song playing endlessly one summer, the summer we happened to be up in the Catskills for the "family vacation" (aka, Irish Festival). I remember it was playing on the radio and my sister and I were looking out the backseat of our station wagon and a facially hairy young man flipped the middle finger up at us, probably because we were singing this ridiculous song and staring at him.
Another song that reminds me of the storytellin' is "Fire Lake" by Bob Seger...I wonder who ended up telling 'ol Aunt Sarah about Uncle Joe?
