SATANIC MYSTERIES REVEALED
I don't know how much time I have to write this. Forces of evil
abound. I and my followers have discovered the secrets of the
celestial plan to end mankind's reign on Earth for all time! So
listen, and listen well. The future of our race depends upon it.
I am Greenscreen. I am the Seer of the Computoidean people.
Our past shall remain shrouded in mystery for the time being. If
you follow the true path, more may be revealed to you. You must
have faith in me. I speak directly with the Fates, and my word
And now, I must tell my tale, and may you believe it for your
own sake. Time is short, and the Evil One is powerful. I don't
know how long I can avoid his detection.
You may never have heard of the Computoids, but you are probably
aware of our work. We were the intrepid people who discovered
the evil connection between Satan and the little man-in-the-moon
logo on Proctor & Gamble boxes. Thanks to our quick and wise
action, you now know of the devilworshipping cult that lives by
the commands written in that cryptic symbol. And thanks to your
loud cries for justice, P&G has agreed to resist the Evil One,
and cease spreading his lies.
But friends, there is more. Oh, yes. We have finally
discovered the incredible truth. Now we must spread the word.
It is up to you to stop the evil.
There exists an amazing network of commands to devilworshippers
and other deviants. The Fates have revealed the true nature of
many logos we all know. Each communicates a massive dose of evil
information to those who stare at it for extended periods of
Don't be tempted! The power you may receive through the symbols
is meant to be the destruction of mankind!
For now, know that these symbols are evil, and should be
banished from boxes around the world. All of the proof you need
is right here. If you look at the following evidence hard
enough, and sincerely examine its validity, you will agree that I
am right. And the first part of my task will be complete.
OLDSMOBILE -- The circle containing the rocket is a clear
depiction of the "crow's foot" popularized by the Peace Symbol of
the '60s. It is really an upside-down cross, an evil sign dating
to long before the middle ages. If you have ever caught yourself
blankly staring at it, beware. Beware of the urge to grow a
beard, drop out of school, and protest war. Beware of the urge
to shave, get a degree, work in a law firm, and buy a nice car.
DAYTON'S -- This company logo looks very innocent, but it most
certainly is not. It suggests three fish eating each other, and
is meant to undermine capitalism by bringing out the baser
instincts associated with running a business.
VALSPAR -- Unlike most Satanic symbols, the multicolored pattern
on the Valspar building has a literal meaning. Although the
pattern looks random, it is actually a message written in the
language of the Destroyers of Saturn. Translated, it says
"Welcome. We hope you enjoy your visit. Please be sure to turn
off the water and scorch everything to cinders before you leave.
Checkout time is at 6:66PM. Thanks. The Management."
NABISCO -- National Biscuit Company indeed! Nabisco is really a
cult of deranged people who worship television!! It is easy to
see the television antenna in their logo. They use the logo as a
powerful Satanic symbol when they want to change the channel and
can't find the remote control unit. The slow spread of cable TV
in large metropolitan areas is probably due to their influence.
Want more proof? Nabisco has been around much longer than
television. Yet, their logo is a Satanic symbol with a clear
meaning. How can they explain that!!?!
COCA-COLA -- Oooooo, this is a mean one. Next year, Coke will
celebrate an important anniversary. Their original formula will
be 100 years old. We tried to have their evil cans and bottles
removed from grocery stores and gas stations around the world
with no success. The symbolism of Coke's logo lies in its
depiction of one world crushing another in a firey blaze not
unlike the inferno that will destroy the world one day (more on
that for anyone who is interested). Various bottles and cans of
Coke products depict this scene in various forms. Clearly, this
evil group is complex. Although the symbol continues to spread
its netherworldly message of lust and hate despite our best
efforts to eliminate it, Coca-Cola has suffered a setback and was
forced to change its sacred formula. We are not exactly sure
what this means, but we take it as a good sign.
These are only a few of the evil Satanic symbols lurking in our
cupboards and refridgerators. But I, Greenscreen, will continue
with my Computoidean people in our never-ending quest to rid the
universe of all nefarious plots to destroy the human race.
Believe in us. We need your help. Together, we can lead our
kind into a new age of wisdom and truth. Just do as I say, and
no one will get hurt.
Yours in everything that is good,

NEW TWIN CITIES RADIO STATION ANNOUNCED
by Gary Finseth
KTOP will be going on the air soon at 109.5FM. Station manager
Bob Same had this to say about the KTOP format:
"Our marketing research shows all Twin Cities music stations are
playing a variety of music that's much too large. Some of the
songs are over 4 weeks old! We take a much different approach.
Originally, we planned to go with a 'Top 1' format -- just play
the number one song over and over. While this remains our goal,
we are going to start with a 'Top 5' format and play only the top
five songs with the following repeating sequence:
1,1,2,1,2,3,1,2,3,4,1,2,3,4,5 ... (repeat).
"In addition, we are promoting the station with a new twist on
'car spotters.' On Friday and Saturday nights we'll have off-
duty police officers pull over every 5th car at selected
roadblocks to check for intoxication. Those found intoxicated
while driving vehicles sporting KTOP bumber stickers will each be
given a six pack of beer and $109.50 in cash, then sent on their
way. Those found intoxicated but lacking the KTOP bumper sticker
will be taken to jail and charged with DWI.
"We will also be dialing random phone numbers between the hours
of 1:00 AM and 4:00 AM. If the first words of the answering
party are 'KTOP is the Twin Cities tops' they win a bottle of
sleeping pills and $109.50 in cash. If any other response is
given, the number will be placed in the KTOP computer system for
auto-dial, and the party will be unable to disconnect from a 30-
second KTOP promotional message that will be played for the rest
of the night."

EXCERPTS FROM "THE DIGNITARY'S QUARTERLY"
by Steve Anderson
With Memorial Day getting closer by the hour, some tips on grave
visitation are in order -- especially in light of the recent
uproar over our Chief Executive's wrath ... er, wreath laying
ceremony in West Germany. One of my favorite publications is
devoted to matters of etiquette for visiting dignitaries and
other such Poohbahs. I clipped an article from the May 1985
issue, and I thought you might like to read part of it.
"... so keep in mind that you are not really there to pay
respects to individuals dear to you. No, your mere presence at a
cemetery can imply that you embrace the ideals of everyone buried
there. Anyone with dignity will find the following suggestions
"1.)Wear a darker suit -- no plaids -- with a solid tie. This
will give you a somber appearance and should raise no doubts
about your sincerity.
2.)Carry flowers, little flags, or other
paraphernalia directly to the headstone you seek. Any deviation
from this can be damaging. Most graveyards have extremely lax
admission standards and the wrong step could link you with any
number of unsavory types (salesmen, journalists, wrong-thinking
3.)Go early in the day. Protesters and
kidnappers like a few extra winks, especially on a holiday.
4).Shave before you go (face or legs as appropriate). The press
will be there, and you don't want to get caught with a shadow.
5.)Be emotional. But don't get carried away. Say it with body
language. Stooped shoulders and bowed head are the standards.
Props like handkerchieves and armbands do add a nice touch,
6.)Depart quickly. Anticipate bothersome admirers and
press by preparing a short statement, neatly typed and hand-
signed on letterhead. Grant no interviews.
"These tips should handle most situations quite well, and they
can be adapted for revivals or wakes. Remember, the issue is not
grief or sorrow or hope or even love. It is how we are
perceived. Follow the example of the departed one you are
visiting. Keep your butt covered."

BAD TASTE BBS
THE BBS WITH NO CLASS, NO REDEEMING GRACE AND NO PHONE NUMBER
discovered by Jim Reider
HELLO! You've reached the BAD TASTE BBS--and that's your tough
luck. In order to log off this board, you must provide the
1. NAME OF SOMEONE YOU DISLIKE
2. ADDRESS OF SOMEONE YOU LIKE EVEN LESS
3. YOUR NEIGHBORS' PHONE NUMBERS
LOGONS are automatic--but once you're in, you're here for the
duration--there is no time off for bad behavior, no way for your
sentence to be commuted. Bad taste is everywhere and once into
our boards, you're locked in--you can't even hang up--the system
calls you back and then puts you on hold--indefinitely. What
could be in worse taste? And now, from us to you, we present our
Bad Taste boards---read 'em and weep...
BOARD 1: THE LIESURE SUIT BOARD. Buy and sell varieties of
that wonderful vestige of americana--the leisure suit. Anyone
buying one of these suits will be immediately logged into our Bad
Taste Hall of Fame. Persons already owning more than one leisure
suit should be branded and sent off to work on a polyester farm
for a minimum of 20 years--Trivia Question? How many polys died
to make one leisure suit? Answer? At least one too many.
Leisure suit buyers: be sure to check our white belt and shoes
board to complete this outfit. And coming soon, a paisley tie
BOARD 2: MISSING PINK FLAMINGOS. Here's the board you've been
waiting for---help poor unfortunate home owners who've had their
pink flamingos swiped from their front lawns by unscrupulous (and
probably jealous) neighbors. Each flamingo is listed by his
(its?) serial number and location. So far, we've found the right
parents of three birds, and have collected at least two flocks of
additional birds from around the area that were looking for good
homes. If you know of someone who is missing a plastic pink
flamingo, have them logon and add to the growing list. If you
know of someone who could provide a loving home for one of our
birds, please leave their name and phone number in the hate mail
box so we can unload...
BOARD 3: THE BILKING BOARD. Interested in new ways to bilk the
people you deal with? The bilking board should help. For
instance, how about those people who call home long distance
(collect) and ask for someone that doesn't exist? It's the next
best thing to being there...and no charge for the call! Or how
about the return of goods to the department store that were
bought at a discount store? Full refunds abound and, oh yes,
BOARD 4: THE SUGGESTION BOX. We suggest you look elsewhere for
useful suggestions...and forget about suggesting that we put any
suggestions in--we suggest that we don't want to hear about your
useful suggestions or even your useless suggestions. Other
suggestions aren't posted here, but when suggestions are in true
bad taste...it is suggested that such suggestions be suggested
again at another suggested time.
BOARD 5: THE DEPARTMENT OF REDUNDANCY DEPARTMENT. See Board 4,
....................Your fingerprints have been recorded. Thank you.
