report the BBC in an article about an Austrian driver who convinced the police there that a pasta strainer was religious headwear and hence was allowed on his driving license photo. It took three years and required a certificate of mental competance, but its one small step on the road to worldwide recognition.
If/when that happens, I wonder if hookers and barkeeps will receive special status as clergy.
EtA And pirates. Would Somalis count?
I am working on a novel about how the FSM trend took off, and within ten years spawned a church and a vicious cult to oppose the church.
The church should have factions, too. Like whether flat noodles are orthodox (fettucine / linguine and such. Not lasagna noodles; no way those count as "noodly").
If is does not say "spaghetti" on the box, it is NOT spaghetti!
Those Angel Hair liberals with their watering down of the true pasta are heretic scum!
Will nobody think of the children? Spaghettini is orthodox for the littlies. Sort of FSM Sunday school.
This man is a hero.
Also, do ravioli count as noodles? What about pierogies?
His Noodliness says, "I’d really rather you didn’t use my existence as a means to oppress, subjugate, punish, eviscerate, and/or, you know, be mean to others". Wouldn't this count against supposing that others people's preferred pasta is somehow wrong?
But gnocchi? Such blasphemy is too much to contemplate, I must rush back to the bosom of the Great IPU.
You start with ravioli, the next thing you know you are on gnocchi! Where will it end?
How 'bout dumplin's?
You could convert tons of people with dumplings.
Or are we going to have to separate into sects: the extruded worshippers and the non-?
The double meaning of "extruded worshippers" was lost on me the first time....
Nobody has mentioned rice noodles yet. I'm pretty sure they're holier than stuffed or doughy wheat "noodles."
Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me had a little segment on this this morning. It ended with a snippet of the Pastafarian song. Anyone know it?
I found this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4Q1zKDqngE
The stupid local paper reprinted that story but called it the Church of the Flying Spaghetti.
I mean really...
I wrote them a very cross e-mail on behalf of the church.
That's just what happens when a couple get angry with each other over dinner, isn't it?
