6-6-6 means there's a party in Hell

What’s the worst job in Hell? Realtor. You’ve got this great looking house to sell, it’s got a big yard, all the latest swag, it’s in a good school district–but it’s in Hell. No, really. It’s in Hell.

HELL, Mich. — They’re planning a hot time in Hell on Tuesday. The day bears the date of 6-6-06, or abbreviated as 666 – a number that carries hellish significance. And there’s not a snowball’s chance in Hell that the day will go unnoticed in the unincorporated hamlet 60 miles west of Detroit.

Live entertainment and a costume contest are planned. The Gates of Hell should be installed at a children’s play area in time for the festivities.

“They’re 8 feet tall and 5 foot wide and each gate looks like flames, and when they’re closed, it’s a devil’s head,” Colone told The Detroit News for a Saturday story.

Maybe those were the Gates of Hell Tom Petty sang wouldn’t make him back down? Because I’m thinking he would back down if you stood him up at the real thing.

Anyway, Hell has a hideous website. Doesn’t everything?

Update: Christopher Hitchens drafts the most clear-eyed picture of hell I’ve seen yet.
