It`s great because it`s funny in two directions.<br>First it makes the believe in the devil rediculous and gives it a technical twist,<br>and second it also calms down people who still DO believe in the god/devil binarism (who will never get to read this sticker anyway!) ;D<br><br>Frank`s business was to entertain. And he could even do so in liner notes and stickers... great!
