According to ASLU (http://www.lifeprint.com/asl101/pages-signs/m/mischievous.htm)

The sign mischievous is a version of the sign for "devil." The sign "DEVIL" uses a serious expression with a set jaw and penetrating gaze. The sign "mischievous" uses a mischievous facial expression: an exaggerated smile, you duck the head forward a bit, hunch the shoulders up a bit, and squint the eyes somewhat.

I remember watching a Hearing person sign a prayer at church. He asked the Lord for protection from "horse."

Heh. I knew what he meant of course, but I also knew that he didn't know the difference between the sign for "Devil" and the sign for "horse."

The sign "HORSE" uses an "H or U" hand with the thumb extended, and the fingers together. The fingers bend at the first (large) knuckles. The sign for "devil" (or "Satan") uses a "three hand" and bends, unbends, and re-bends the fingers at the second and third knuckles (the small knuckles) ending in a 3 digit claw shape with the thumb touching the side of the forehead.

Thank you!

     I am studying sign language in my 8th grade language class.  I had to figure out how to say our favorite animal.  my favorite animal is a Tasmainian Devil, also called a 'T-Devil'  if i sign the letter 'T' and the word 'Devil'  i think it would mean the same as 'T-Devil'.  Thank you for supplying me with the knowlege of this word!
