FSM candy

Has anyone else seen this?

Haribo Sour S’ghetti Gummi Candy. The package clearly depicts the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Here’s what I’m wondering: Is the company using the FSM as sort of a celebrity spokesman for their product, or is it a subtle anti-pastafarian message? What I mean is, how many products do you see with an illustration of Jesus being impaled by a fork? I get it that spaghetti is sort of associated with forks, but this illustration is of a spaghetti monster, with eyes and everything. So what is the deal, Haribo?

Close-up of the impaling:

Blogger Charles Star at Stay Free Magazine had a different interpretation:

I think what I like most about this FSM illustration is the religious symbolism. While the religious right tries, a la Kramer, to stick a fork in His Noodliness for his heretical existence, he extends a middle finger at those who would undermine science in education.

Ramen.
