The Demon Test!

This post is a blatant rip-off of Ed Brayton's Dispatches from the Culture Wars today:

I’m not sure how the existence of an online test to tell whether you’re possessed by a demon, especially one owned by Christian fraud Bob Larson, has escaped my attention. But this is funny stuff. Yes, for the low price of $9.95, you can find out if are demon-possessed.
Taking the Demon Test® may be the most important spiritual decision you make. This Test is the result of more than 30 years of research and thousands of hours in personal ministry with troubled souls. Through this vast experience we have been able to design this test so that we may quickly determine an individual’s spiritual condition.
If you are concerned about your test score, we highly recommend that you schedule personal one-on-one time with Bob Larson. You may choose a one-hour Encounter Session or a full or half-day Intensive Session. These sessions are held during Bob’s on-the-road seminars (please click here to review Bob’s current schedule) or at our Center for Spiritual Freedom in Phoenix Arizona.
In one hour you can begin living the life you’ve always wanted. Let Bob Larson, the man who has dealt with more demons than anyone on the planet, show you how to overcome every obstacle of every day. Stop the cycles of failure, poverty and sickness. Break family curses at the ROOT! Discover why you are the way you are and immediately change destructive habits. If you have demons, you’ll be delivered. If you have issues, they’ll be uncovered. If you have infirmities, the healing will begin. No pastor, priest, or counselor has dwelt with more spiritually bound people sad seen them set free. This isn’t counseling. This isn’t therapy. This is intervention to get answers NOW! Your lifetime of suffering can end. Your torment can stop. The job you need, the relationships you desire will be within your reach. The choice is simple–stay stuck or move on to spiritual fulfillment and success in every area of life. Get free, stay free, and live free!
If you’re laughing right now, you’re obviously possessed by the demon of rationality. 
This is me again.  I only copied the first part of it, because I want you to go to his blog and read the rest - it's hilarious!
Of course, the worst part of this is that the man's rip-off scam is perfectly legal.  And you can bet there are folks stupid enough and gullible enough to fall for it.
