In a follow-up to the previous post… Yesterday afternoon, still ludicrously pleased at the 666 follower co-incidence, I tweeted thus:

“In honor having 666 followers, some old gags: What’s 664? The Neighbor of the Beast. 665? The Fax Number of the Beast. Etc”

The barrage of dreadful gags that followed is fine testament to the inventiveness of the denizens of Twitterland…

I think that’s all of them – apologies if I missed one of yours, but they were coming in scarily thick and fast at one stage. Where duplication occurred, the first to come up with it is up on this list… And I’ve just thought of another one, dammit:

Pieces of Six – The Plunder of the Beast.

But that’s enough now.
