“Money money money money, MONEY…” Our wicked series continues with Greed: the desire for material wealth or gain above all else. It is also called Avarice or Covetousness. Greed is linked with the frog and the color yellow. Your punishment in Hell: You’ll be boiled alive in oil. Bear in mind that it’s the finest, most luxurious boiling oil that money can buy, but it’s still boiling.

Tonight’s tune is The O’Jay’s For the Love of Money “For the love of money People will lie, rob, they will cheat. For the love of money People don’t care who they hurt or beat. For a small piece of paper it carries a lot of weight. Oh, that mean, mean, mean, mean, mean green. Almighty Dollar! Talkin’ bout, talkin’ bout – cash. I know that money is the root of all evil. Money can drive some people out of their minds. For the love of money No good, no good, no good.”
