The Devilphone



Newspaper clipping from 1903, reporting that the entire village of Saint-Etienne des Gres regarded the telephone as Satanic and refused to have anything to do with it. “… the inhabitants determined to oppose its entry and resolved to arm themselves with their agricultural implements and to make a fight for it.” Hollywood style villagers with pitchforks, for real!

And this is how angry they were before any of them could possibly have needed to phone an Indian call centre. Those really are the work of the Evil One.
