Norwegians confused by Bush family's ``Satanic salute''

OSLO, Norway - There appears to be somewhat of a cultural divide between Texans and Norwegians.

Residents of the Scandinavian country were taken aback when they saw the First Family appear to salute Satan during the inaugural parade yesterday.

The president and his family were seen raising their right hands and extending their index and pinky fingers.

Where Bush is from, that's recognized as a salute to the University of Texas Longhorns. Fans make the sign and shout ``Hook 'em, horns!'' during athletic events.

But overseas, that same gesture is seen as a sign of the devil. And in Norway the salute is popular among death metal and black metal groups and fans.
