Successful Outreach

Published June 9th, 2009 by Bobby Henderson

I ordered the gospel of the flying spaghetti monster and sent the glorious word to a minimum security federal prison in Yankton SD. As a token of gratitude one the the guys spent 2 months in his cell crocheting this blanket glorifying the FSM. I put my guitar next to it for a perspective of size. Who says ex-cons can’t be a productive member of our society!?!?!

All my best,

    Postscript: I’ll send him an FSM T-shirt if I get my hands on the pattern.

    Wow..I didn’t expect such a response! Never under estimate the power of the FSM! This blanket was made Eric Burkett. He is being released to a half way house in November of this year. He is 35 and a VERY nice guy. (no violence – no theft)

    I know he appreciates mail so if anyone wants to write him I know he will respond with pattern request ect. He did make the blanket from just the picture in the book so I don’t know if he made a pattern or just tapped into the Noodlie Cosmic Energy! =)

    Sean Boyd – You may be on to something, Matey!
    I’ll admit it. One of the things I love about our church is that we have so many beautiful women, who look smashing in pirate regalia. If we can get them on TV to say,
    “Send in your donation now, and you can drink beer with me all night long when we get to Pastafarian Heaven!”
    then maybe we can get that pirate ship in no time!

    May the Dread Lord Eric Burkett have a prominent place upon the majestic cosmic pirate ship!
