"Of course not."

Look, do I agree with the Orb's entire agenda? Of course not. But I do trust that the Orb has humanity's best interests at heart.

"ALL HAIL THE ORB," another person said.

And this person wanted to joke, but couldn't.

I want to make a joke about Orb but I'm pretty sure the existence of Orb means the time for joking has passed

You know shit's gotten weird when the actual Church of Satan has to issue a clarification.

For clarification, this is not a Satanic ritual.

We just don't know any more.

OK, not super important but still: what was the actual deal with the orb?
