Well, that’s something you don’t expect to see on your way into work, even in a place as wacky as Canada.
A statue of the Devil was erected overnight in a park in Vancouver near a major transit hub for the SkyTrain line, featuring Satan giving a devil’s horn salute with his right hand (rock on, motherfuckers!) and holding his, well, “fleshy red pitchfork” with the other. The statue stood nine feet tall and was anatomically faithful, from the tip of his horns to the bottom of his tail to the tip of his…well, you know what.
Passersby noticed the statue early yesterday. The City of Vancouver had no idea how it got there or who put it up, but it was on city property, so it was bye-bye for Big-Balled Beelzebub.
“I’m going to have nightmares tonight,” said one city worker who removed the statue.
Nobody has taken responsibility for the statue, and it is reportedly heading to the city dump. If nobody wants it…dibs?
