Supposedly Satanic school bus features pentagram brake lights

A Memphis mother believes her local school buses are on the highway to hell

Many of us used to watch the educational children’s show The Magic School Bus without ever even questioning whether or not Ms. Frizzle derived her magical powers from the dark arts. We were so young and naïve back then…

A more cynical woman in Memphis, however, has seen through all the lies, and is convinced that the school buses in her state are praising Satan. Why? Because the buses’ brake lights clearly form an LED pentagram (duh!)

“Anyone who fears a God, if not God and Jesus Christ, should be outraged,” said Robyn Wilkins, a Memphis mother who spotted and photographed the offending bus in Cordova, Tennessee. “If you can’t put a cross on there, you cannot put a pentagram.”

But if the mere presence of a five-pointed star made something “Satanic,” then the Dallas Cowboys would be evil incarnate.

Then again, on second thought
