It has been pointed out that our beloved sign of the devil does closely resemble the deaf sign for “I love you.” But rest assured, metal fans, Helen Keller was apparently a satanist. At least, that’s according to the religious nutbags who see these photos as indicative of a secret satanic plot amongst government officials.

I think we’ll see it as a secret government plot to bring back the glory days of 80s heavy metal.

George Bush seemed particularly fond of the gesture; there are numerous photos of him making the sign, including an official portrait with the Queen. Apparently the symbol is used to indicate support for Texas.

Ronnie James Dio is often credited as popularizing the devil’s sign at Black Sabbath concerts. He has said his grandmother used to do it to ward off the evil eye.
