(mimes shooting a pistol)
There’s another guy cheatin’! . . And there’s one stealin’ from his boss! . .  And she is settin’ up her friend to look like a fool!
I love these loonie-tune humans, they just love to sin!


Legion comes on stage, Satan motions to him to come watch the TV


Satan:              Legion my friend! . .  Come on over here and see what we are doin’ down on earth!


Legion:            Yeh, Satan, I see that but . ..


Satan:              Awesome, ain’t it! . . . Jesus and the do-gooders have chance zero against us guys!


Legion:            Well, it’s nice to see we are havin’ some success but . . .


Satan:              But what Legion?


Legion:            Well, look, all I’m sayin’ is . . even Satan can’t win them all . . I mean . .


Satan, grabs Legion by the collar, angry:       
What . . exactly  . .  are you tryin’ to tell me Legion?
(sniffs, reacts to the smell)
And what is that . . . putrid smell? . .  Smells like you have been rollin’ around in . .  pig manure!


Legion:            Cool down man! . . I mean, I did what you asked me to do! . .


Satan:              Fine! . .  I am cool! . . .  I am waitin’ for an explanation,  . .  and it better be quick! . .  And it better be like real good news!


Legion:            Well, there’s some good news for sure . . and some not so very good news!


Satan:              I am warnin’ you Legion! . . You’ve got about 60 seconds to spit it all out! . .  What assignment were you on again?


Legion:            Well, I did like you said, went down to the Gadrenes district and found this fella . . big strong fella . .  and when I took over his mind and body he was like impossible for any human to handle!


Satan, rubs hands in glee:       
Awesome man! . .  Didn’t I always say you were my number one weapon? . .  Go on . . go on!


Legion:            Yeh, well, anyhow, this fella started living in the tombs, on account of no one could live with him. More than once the locals tried to capture him, even bound him with chains, he just tore the chains apart and tore the irons off his feet. 24/7 he would cry out, weird like, even cutting himself with stones.


Satan, does a joyful dance:     
Yes! . .  Yes! . .  Yes! . . .
(pauses, thinks)
Hey wait . .  How come you ain’t wearin’ your happy face here Legion?
Don’t go and tell me this story’s got bad news!


Legion:            Well, for a fact Satan . .  there is some bad news too . .


Satan, grabs Legion by the collar, shakes him:
I told you not to tell me there was bad news!


Legion, afraid: Sorry boss but about that time this guy and his friends come across the lake and my assignment guy went right after him!


Satan, fear:      Please don’t tell me this guy with his friends was . . Jesus . .!


Legion, cowering:       
Actually boss, it was . .  like . .  Jesus . ..  actually . .


Satan, grabs Legion by the collar, shakes him:
I told you not to tell me this guy was . . Jesus!
