"What's that you say, staff-thing? It's time for murder and ice-cream?"
Demonic possession of inanimate objects is a sadly overlooked epidemic of the modern era. And yet, many of us are affected by it every day, unaware of the infernal machinations at work.
It doesn't have to be a perpetually flaming screaming skull, either. Whether it's your misbehaving car, laptop, or an X-Box that begs for you to marry it and take it away from all this, most of us have at least one trinket of the damned.
The things to watch for: Does it ask you to feed it? Does it refer to itself as the "Nigh-Omnipotent Devourer of Light, Condemner of All Things, Hammer of Decay?" Does it occasionally cough up a small animal's remains? (Stuffed animals count.) Or, the sure-fire giveaway, does it have the universal symbol of the diabolic? (Looks like an apple with a bite mark.)
