The Problem Of Evil

Happy St. Patrick's Day! On this and every other day, it's important to be able to know good from evil and choose accordingly. I found this test, composed by Professor Stampede, to be most helpful, at least as far as my own nature is concerned. Lest there be any doubt, the result:

How evil are you?

For the record, I do not and never have worked directly for AOL. However, considering that I did once work for Time-Warner, which was purchased by AOL, this is really an impressive result. I had suspected for some time, but it's good to know.

I believe very strongly that evil exists and is present in our world, working toward its evil ends.

What?? Not Sanrio's beloved icon of penguiny cuteness, "Bad" Badtz-Maru! Surely you jest, Mr. Witcover!

Would that it were so! Look again:

Why, he's even got his own "Quality Web Site"! If that's not evil, I don't know what is.

As we all know, St. Patrick was responsible for driving the penguins out of Ireland, which is why this day is celebrated the world over with prodigious bouts of drinking and vomiting, for evil penguins like Badtz-Maru feed their young by a similar method; yet another example of how the Catholic church is not above taking its rituals from penguin (or "pagan") sources.

Still, it's debatable whether even Badtz is as evil as this or this.

Or this.

Maybe Batdtz-Maru is a little tiny wee bit evil after he drinks too much vodka and gets on the roof and plays around with his Armalite semi-automatic rifle with bayonet attachment. But he's not Evil like, say, Phil Spector. Or General Pace who apparently believes that gay people are immoral but war is righteous. Now that's Evil.

I am not evil:

No question that Bad Badtz Maru trumps them all, for he has the most awesome kind of Evilness of all--the Cute Kind. None can stand before that.

Aw, man! I only rated "twisted." That was one biased test!
