Mazes and Monsters

Too funny! Reminds me of all the people who blame television and games for the "degenerate youth of today." A complaint Pliny the Younger made two thousand years ago.


  1. Oh, I remember that movie. But then I grew up in the era of the Great Satanic Moral Panic of the 80s and 90s. Very similar to the Death Panel Moral Panic that went on earlier this year. Everyone in the Middle Southwest was convinced that there was a Global Satanic Conspiracy that infiltrated every level of the government, and that upwardly mobile types in their neighborhoods who got too rich to fast must have made a pact with old Clooty himself in some drug fueled sex party involving Anton LeVey and a hundred naked swingers for Satan!

    Sad but true. Who knew that would be the seed germ for the Teabaggers!

  2. A hundred naked swingers for Satan huh? As Shakespeare said, they "...doth protest too much, methinks."

  3. Well you know the greatest fear that Conservatives hold closest to their little black hearts? That someone, somewhere out there, is having fun and not sufficiently paying for it!

    The nerve of some people! I think sometimes the true source of all this angst is that conservatives feel left out.
