The Devil Went Down to Georgia

devil

In this song, the devil challenges a hillbilly to a fiddling contest, but he doesn’t have anyone judge the contest and just sort of admits defeat at the end and goes back to hell after giving the hillbilly a solid gold violin. This is pretty gracious, because the devil’s solo is just as good and the hillbilly is kind of a jerk the whole time. 3.3/5

The Loch Ness Monster

The Loch Ness Monster is ostensibly the last of a family of dinosaurs that has somehow maintained a breeding population for at least the last sixty million years, but which nobody noticed until after the camera was invented. Nessie appeals to me as someone who wants to ride around on an animal but finds horses and elephants not impressive enough, but it’s pretty clear from the photo it’s just a drowning man whose last wish was to do a sock puppet show. 3.3/5
