Sent to Earth to poke Catholics in the ass with saws
And knock blunt ashes into their caskets and laugh it off
Earl (and Odd Future, for that matter) doesn’t have much respect for religion
The second line of the phrase suggests that Earl and his crew smokes blunts around the bodies of Catholics and anyone else they kill. They think nothing of it and laugh it off afterwards.
Also, ashes were used in ancient times, according to the Bible, to express mourning. Dusting oneself with ashes was the penitent’s way of expressing sorrow for sins and faults (like Ash Wednesday).
