Hentai style

Published May 22nd, 2010 by Bobby Henderson

I particularly like the pirate-fish stockings

Ahoy,
Following the increase of attacks on people drawing muhamad, I thought I’d submit my take on His Holly Noodlyness, Hentai stylee, to show this aggro world how accepting and chilled Pastafarians are.

    There are a lot of strange comments on here.

  2. Liutasiun says:

    Well what did you expect of the god who has a stripper factory in heaven ^^

  3. Hentai says:

    Great blog right here! Also your website loads up very fast! What host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your host? I desire my web site loaded up as quickly as yours lol

  4. filesonic says:

    Terrific paintings! That is the type of info that should be shared across the web. Shame on Google for not positioning this publish upper! Come on over and seek advice from my website . Thank you =)

  5. allsaints says:

    Amazing blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thanks!

  6. Rachel says:

    Your dick apparently does the typing.

    To the moderators:

    I’m disgusted that you haven’t promptly removed this gorilla’s “art” since it (and your attitude) clearly exemplify rape culture. How would you react if the depicted cartoon character were a boyish male?

    • Zuri says:

      O.K….. This is too weird for me not to say something.

      1. I hope this “Rachel” isn’t the child who typed “h-a-t-e” a few years back. If this is how Christian kids end up, I’m screwed….

      2. Please, take this down. You say that rape is depicted in the Bible. First, I saw a joke made about the FSM inserting a noodly appendage in my nether orifice when I first came here. Oh, really? So your drunk spaghetti god rapes 10 year old girls? Great morals you got there. Then, I heard about your stripper factory heaven. That alone is degrading of women. Now this “drawing”? What is this, a porn site?

      3. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only 12 year old here. You do realize children are running rampant on the Internet, right? And a lot of them search things like flying spaghetti, and then they come and see this crap?

      4. Are you really that bored? Don’t you have a job or a girlfriend or a life or something?

      -Zuri

      • Atsap Revol says:

        If you are so offended, Zuri, why do you keep coming to this site?

        • Zuri says:

          One or two offending threads versus hundreds of priceless humor? I’m in. Besides, if I had a penny for every time someone was offended, I’d be the richest person in the world…..

        • Insightful Ape says:

          Zuri, zuri. He is saying “may you be touched by his noodly appendage”. It means: may you see the light.

      • The Reverend Toni Rigatoni says:

        Hi Zuri, let me if I may, respond to your comments. Firstly, it’s irrelevant who Rachel is or how she ended up as, sad to say, evidence suggests that as a christian child you are pretty much destined to be ‘screwed’ regardless. You are already, at the tender age of 12, displaying the judgmental and blinkered attitudes that at some point in the future will almost certainly devolve into h.a.t.e. It will be a natural process as you begin to realise that the world doesn’t revolve around you and your beliefs, when you find hate and anger are the only weapons you have left in your arsenal as you slowly realize that what you believe doesn’t stand up to even the mildest amount of scrutiny and when common sense and rational argument assails you from all sides, the only defense you will have is anger and hate – and shoving your fingers in your ears and going ‘la la la’.

        If there was a joke about rape aimed at you I hope that at that time your age hadn’t been revealed, however if it was then I have to say, it was in the utmost bad taste and I apologize on behalf of the vast majority here that would shudder at the thought of such a action, but by your admission, it WAS a joke; the rapes in the bible however are NOT a joke, if you believe the bible to be the word of god then you must accept the rapes described there happened. Not only did they happen but they were sanctioned by your god! The bible, and by extension your god, not only approves of the rape of women but decrees that women are the property of men, that they have no rights other than those bestowed upon them by men, that women should not be educated or be leaders and a hundred and one other appallingly degrading things that your god would have in store for you if he and his church leaders had their way. The burka and female circumcision are testament to religion’s universal demeaning and degrading attitudes to women, as you say, ‘Great morals you got there’. Do women that choose to be strippers degrade women? I say choose as most strippers I suspect choose that lifestyle, so how do they and those who enjoy their work degrade them in any way if it’s their choice?

        I was wondering why any one would randomly Google ‘flying spaghetti’ if not already aware of it’s existence? The few that might have a mental breakdown and randomly Goggle two totally unrelated words and discover this ‘crap’ as you call it, is but a drop in the ocean compared to the millions of kids that are force-fed your crap, and they suffer far less emotional abuse from this ‘crap’ than will those being indoctrinated with unrelenting religious nonsense.

        No Zuri I’m not bored, I have a full and interesting life, I do have a job, but not a girlfriend, instead I have a wife, three kids and five grandchildren and in my long and full life I have never seen, sensed or uncovered a single shred of evidence to support anything claimed by any religion – ever, and I will to my dying breath encourage my grandchildren to think rationally so as to guide them away from the trap that so many fresh young minds are being lured into with lies and deceit and plain old superstition. I implore you Zuri, don’t blindly accept what your parents and priests tell you, use your own senses, read your bible properly and completely and apply your rational thinking skills to what you have read.

        Atsap (who incidentally, has great-grandchildren) asks why you still come here; I think I may know. You return because you are secretly, perhaps unknowingly intrigued by what we have to say. Why?, because deep down you have a small nagging doubt about what you have been told, am I right? Open your mind young lady before it is too late, before the dogma becomes too ingrained. You are but a small step from becoming free of the bonds that are slowly tightening around you, bonds that will eventually squeeze from you your human spirit, your free will and your self respect (not to mention a large portion of you income); you are but one small step from becoming a Pastafarian.

        I’m truly saddened that one as young as you should be so far down the road to fundamentalism but I equally believe it’s not to late for you to see the light as it were; I wish you a long and happy life Zuri, and also that you find the inner strength that will carry you along whatever path that life takes you on; but remember this; you and only you are the master of your destiny, you choose your path.

        May the Sauce always be with you.

        The Reverend

        • Zuri says:

          1. No, I do not have literal hate for anyone. I do sometimes post negative comments to things said on here, but that isn’t because I “hate” you. Admit it, some of the things on here are twisted and warped, and you’re afraid to say so because you don’t want to be “Antipastafarian.” Be your own person, don’t be cowed by your cult here. I don’t hesitate to point out when a Christian does something wrong.

          2. See “most f***ing pathetic excuse for a religion”, 12/25- 12/26/2010 for the rape joke. I had already mentioned something about “I am in elementary school” before the joke was made. To that person: Be careful what you say, it comes back to bite you later. I don’t know what burka is, but I know that circumcision is when you cut part of a baby’s privates. Isn’t that a hospital practice to prevent disease or something? How is it degrading?

          3. I was addressing the lowlife twenty year olds with nothing better to do who are aroused by this. Basically they’re saying “I’m so lonely I have to look at drawings of a drunk bowl of spaghetti groping a young girl (yes, the cartoon character looks somewhat childlike. I trust this was not intentional.)” I know some of you have families and very interesting lives, but the people with nothing to live for are the ones running rampant here.

          4. Do you remember what it’s like to be nine or ten years old? Kids love random things like flying spaghetti. I joked about things like this. That’s how I found this site in the first place. I’ve suffered more “emotional abuse” from watching the daily news than twelve years of Christianity. I have never suffered such “emotional abuse” from church or going to a Christian preschool or anything.

          5. I am intrigued by what you say, but not because I doubt what I’ve been told. I’m not an atheist-in-training. It always helps to know about the other side of things, am I right? I am not, in any way,shape, or form, losing my human spirit, free will, or self-respect. That has nothing to do with Christianity. I have goals to reach in life, and hope God will help me get there.

          Bless you, and have a nice day.

          -Zuri

        • Atsap Revol says:

          Zuri, you again reveal how naive you are. Since you know how to use the net, look up Female Circumcision and Burka. These are related to Islam, a religion that places women on an even lower level than the other Abrahamic religions. While you are Googling, also look up Abrahamic Religions. You are bright and capable of learning if you keep your eyes open.

        • Zuri says:

          That’s it. I’m done. I can’t argue with you. I can’t tell you something you don’t want to hear, I can’t teach you something you don’t want to learn. Go on. Keep believing in your spaghetti god. It doesn’t matter. You might think you’re the coolest thing ever now, but let’s see you stare into the face of Judgement. What will you have to say to your noodle god then?

          In the long run, I have nothing to lose, but you have everything. I know you may sound like a breath of fresh air with the idea of rejecting religion. Most of you are young and rebellious, and just want to look cool to your friends. That’s one thing when you’re straight out of a college campus. But look at me! I’m straight out of an elementary school and don’t need to reject God to look “cool.” You’re twenty, I’m twelve. Who’s supposed to be the mature one here?

          It’s time to wake up, man. We’ve got ten months to live. Ten months to repent. On December 21, 2012, your whole drunk flying bowl of spaghetti god won’t matter at all. You’ll be staring into the face of God and going “I….I……” as he throws you out of heaven. And you’ll see a sweet little new angel smiling at you from inside the gate. That’s me. I won’t even have to remind you. Who’s cool now? You’re roaming outside of the pearly gates wishing you could go in. No amount of pasta can save you now. Can that “noodly appendage” get you into heaven? I thought not. Because it’s not real.

          It’s time to face the music. You might think I’m crazy, but in ten months, you’ll be begging me to help you. And I’ll put on that sweet little-girl act, “Sorry- my mommy says I’m not supposed to talk to strangers.” Of course, you’ll know it’s an act, but you’ll be so helpless, you’ll be begging a twelve-year-old girl to somehow, some way, save you. And I’ll just smile and look away.

          You have 309 days left.

          Good luck.

        • TiltedHorizon says:

          Zuri,

          Let me get this straight. You believe the world is going to end on December 21, 2012 AND you are looking forward to the “end” so you can say “I told you so”?

          Is this the morality religion teaches? You are right, you have nothing to lose, it seems religion has already taken your humanity, that which holds no real value.

        • Keith says:

          See you later, Zuri. I’m sure you will be back harrassing us under a different “Nom de Plume” in 2013.

        • Zuri says:

          I forgot to add: The above comment is only a joke.

        • Zuri says:

          Calm down, guys. I’m kidding. Lighten up.

        • Atsap Revol says:

          Well, Zuri, did you Google the items I suggested? If you did, you now understand what Reverend Toni was saying about the degradation of women by religion. You know that “female circumcision” is not done in a hospital and is often done in a hovel with a rusty razor blade. And there’s no medical reason for it…just misguided Islamic stupidity.

          I could add that male circumcision (which in civilized countries usually is done in a hospital) generally has no medical justification. It is handed down from your Old Testament and is carried out on nearly 100% of male babies by Jews and Muslims. It became nearly standard practice to circumcise all male babies regardless of religion in America and much of the rest of the world. Many little boys were inadvertently mutilated in the process. Current parents are more-and-more rejecting the procedure.

          Religion has many dark corners which will be explored only by inquisitive seekers of truth.

        • The Reverend Toni Rigatoni says:

          Hello again Zuri. Thank you for responding to my post but unfortunately, although you write very well you reading, or at least your comprehension appears to be somewhat lacking. At no time did I say that you hated, but rather, that your convictions would at some point in the future turn to hate; not the same thing! Things on this site may appear twisted when viewed from your skewed view of reality but when approached with a rational, open mind it makes absolute sense. I, as are all of the freethinkers that regularly post here, very much our own persons despite what you might think and we too don’t hesitate to point out when one of our own does something wrong either.

          Atsap has already suggested that you Google burka and female circumcision and I hope you have taken his advice; if not I will inform you. The burka is a all-covering piece of clothing that muslim women are forced to wear so as to prevent men looking at her ‘owners’ property (yes, women ARE the property of men, initially the property of their father then of their husband. Never to be free to choose their own destiny as you are). Female circumcision is probably the most barbaric thing you can imagine, made even more so because it continues in a so called enlightened age. It is the purposeful mutilation of the female genitals, performed for the sole purpose of ensuring that only the men derive enjoyment from love making. I use the term love making in deference to your tender years as it’s almost certain that love has very little to do with it in that culture. Degrading enough for you Zuri? (For more degradation see the Old Testament)

          The Hentai picture, if you know about the Hentai style, does not purposely look childlike; the character has a full adult body, the only thing that gives it a childlike look are the big eyes (small children have relatively large eyes which provokes a protective response in adults. A bit of science there Zuri, that’s s.c.i.e.n.c.e, look that up too). Hentai is an eastern art form and as you know orientals have small eyes and the large eyes of the western people are admired by many in the east. The Hentai artists make the eyes large on purpose for that reason, not, I repeat not to make them look childlike.

          Your more recent post belies your claim not to be without free-will and not to have suffered emotional abuse, it’s just that you don’t know it yet. The abuse is being lied to by adults that have a lot to gain from your devotion; they have lied about god, if god did exist he wouldn’t qualify as a loving god, just as well then that he doesn’t; they have lied to you about heaven and about hell and they have lied to you about the end of days and the coming of the rapture; wake up, it’s all lies!! Where is your free-will when you believe you have no future but to surrender yourself to your coming destruction, where is your free-will when you make statements like ‘I have goals to reach in life, and hope God will help me get there’, he won’t; I said it before and I’ll say it again ‘you and only you are the master of your destiny’. You think you are free but you are not; you are young and full of optimism now, but your religious convictions are like a straight jacket, the cross you wear around your neck is a mill-stone that will eventually bring you to your knees, will eventually break your spirit if not your back, although sadly, you probably won’t realise it until it is too late. The rot is already setting in Zuri; you are already displaying the arrogance of being ‘right’ and being ‘better’ that religion instills; you are 12 years old yet you claim to be trying to teach us? . You are not right, you are not better, and you are certainly not a teacher, you are but a 1st grade student of life and you have much to learn. Religion will poison that, religion closes you mind and stifles growth. You seem a very bright girl Zuri but god will not help you get where you deserve to go, god will do just the opposite, don’t let god get in the way of the rest of your life.

          May the Sauce be with you.

          Toni

          That last post is very well written indeed. Truly, you are Touched by His Noodly Appendage, and thoroughly deserve the term Reverend, far more than the lying frauds of Christianity who purport to have a true claim to the word.

          Zuri

          I hope you listen to the advice of Toni and Atsap. They have taken some valuable time to offer their wisdom and no doubt have done so for two reasons; firstly, they understand the meaning of responsibility that mature adults have toward the development of children and secondly, they do not want yet another young mind and future adult wasted on the fo

        • stylusmobilus says:

          …screw this phone…the foolish paradigm of religion. It is a gift quite a few of us, including me, may not bother to give. They are right- you are being lied to, and brainwashed in the worst possible way. Do not waste your obvious intelligence. Become a free thinker and question the moronic trash you are being indoctrinated into. Set your mind free and allow yourself to discover the true beauty of the world and the universe you live in.

          By the way, the 2012 apocalypse thing is not a Christian date for the end of the world. It is Mayan, and the fact Christianity adopts it for its end date is proof of the one size fits all if it suits us approach that religion will adopt. Yours was last year abd we all know how that went. To put it in terms a 12 year old would understand it was, like, an epic fail.

        • Drained and Washed Clean says:

          Zuri, seriously. How many times have we told you? Enough to know that you don’t actually want to know the truth, you just want to be right. But you’re not. While you are looking up “burka” and “female circumcision”, please also look up satire.

        • BrightWhite says:

          “The bible, and by extension your god, not only approves of the rape of women . . .” – The Reverend

          It is interesting that you would only include women in your discussion of rape in the bible. I will excuse the omission during a “lecture” but the bible also includes instances of rape of men.

          “Open your mind young lady before it is too late, before the dogma becomes too ingrained.” – The Reverend

          Dogma, as defined, is a “prescribed doctrine proclaimed as unquestionably true by a particular group”. When discussing unquestioning faith in doctrine, I applaud you for instructing others to question what they are told and to decide for themselves what is true. It is my hope, as someone who as been on that journey, that people will accept whatever truth their children find and support them.

        • Atsap Revol says:

          ZURI, when I made that comment I didn”t know you were eleven years old, and I didn’t know whether you were male or female. The humor on this site is aimed at adults. If you want to avoid profanity and suggestive posts, go to one of the Christian websites. If I offended your sensitivities, I apologize. But why did you open the door for such a joke by declaring that the term “Noodley Appendage” is a vulgarity? A Flying Spaghetti Monster has noodley appendages, not hands as you suggested.

          May you be touched (mentally, not physically) by His Noodley Appendages.

        • The Reverend Toni Rigatoni says:

          BrightWhite, thank-you for your response to my post, I can now carry on with my ministry knowing I have your approbation.

          I am aware that the bible is not gender exclusive in its support for rape. I excluded males simply because the post to which I was responding was concerned with the demeaning of women and I was attempting to show, specifically, the degradation of women that is rife in the bible. Perhaps I should have excluded the word ‘women’ completely. Incidentally, I find it interesting that you used the term ‘interesting’ when questioning my exclusion; are you suggesting that I may have an agenda?

          I find it a little disturbing that you suggest we support our children with ‘whatever truth they find’, as if there are a variety of truths. The biggest problem we are up against here is people deciding on their own truth. We should be encouraging young minds to find THE truth not A truth.

          May they all be touched by his Noodly Appendage and may the Sauce be with you.

          The Reverend

        • The Reverend Toni Rigatoni says:

          Zuri, I’m a little baffled by something you said in your post of the 12th of February when responding to my suggestion that you may be have doubts about what you have been told. Your words were, and I quote: ‘I am intrigued by what you say, but not because I doubt what I’ve been told. I’m not an atheist-in-training’. The reason I bring this up is because when casually looking through old posts recently, I found one from back in March 2011 when you responded to a post about Pastafarian conversions with the words – ‘I never actually “converted” to Pastafarianism, I’m just a freethinking Christian. I know, that doesn’t make sense, but I can’t call myself an athiest (sic) quite yet. (A lot of that has to do with me still living with my Christian parents.)’. Can’t call yourself an atheist just yet? I also recall one time when I had a ‘run-in’ with a hate-mailer, you said I was ‘Awsome’. That would suggest to me that you had more than a secret doubt about your ‘education’. Come on Zuri, ‘fess up, have you changed your mind since last March or are you, as I suspect, really Little Miss Wind-Up?

          I think you may have been a little more touched by His Noodly Appendage than you are admitting!! Take the plunge, you’ll find the water’s lovely.

          May the Sauce be with you.

          “Free-thinking Christian”. I believe the short description for that is “heretic”.

        • Mal says:

          tFtPtM, unfortunately, I cannot agree with you. Even heretics are blinded by the misinformation that is rife throughout the church. In my opinion, the terms “free-thinking” and “christian” are counter intuitive. They cannot coexist peacefully. One must outweigh the other. If a “free-thinking christian” ever considered all the evidence and afterwards still believed in a god, then they were never actually free-thinking. Am I right?

          “We should be encouraging young minds to find THE truth not A truth.” – The Reverend Toni Rigatoni

          But you forget, what is true for one, is not true for all. That is why thousands of scientist are rewarded billions of dollars to discover the truths that are out there. Even when we think that we have found “THE” truth, another truth comes into existence that is just as probable, making us question our understanding of the first truth. Knowing this, partial knowledge should never be accepted as truth.

          May the creaminess of the Lord Fettucini be upon you.

        • BrightWhite says:

          @ Mal – the concept of a “free thinker” seems to be a bit misleading. We are defined by the sum of our experiences. These experiences influence the way in which we operate within our environment. So, are there truly “free-thinkers” out there or are we slaves of the totality of our experience.

        • The Reverend Toni Rigatoni says:

          BrightWhite, I’m not sure how to respond to your last post without appearing argumentative and pedantic, but as I am both argumentative and pedantic, here goes. Your statement that I have forgotten, as you say ‘that what is true for one is not true for all’ implies that you are under the impression that that is what I believe. That is certainly untrue and furthermore what you say is inaccurate, I maintain that what is true for one IS true for all; truth is incontrovertible, immutable fact and not what any individual or even large body of scientists perceive or believe to be the truth. I would be prepared to bet that few if any scientific minds would state that everything they discover or postulate is the truth, which is why science has far more theories than laws. The theory of evolution, the theory of gravity and many, many others are considered to be fact due overwhelming evidence and vigorous testing and experiment but despite that are not referred to as laws; such is the scientific commitment to truth. If further evidence were discovered, however unlikely that may be, that altered the scientific view of evolution it would not become a second truth as the first ‘truth’ will have become exposed as neither immutable, incontrovertible or factual, at least in its entirety, thereby revealing it as untrue. I proclaim my atheism as true in the same way that science proclaims evolution to be true, based on current best evidence, experiment, and personal experience and anecdote. If however incontrovertible, immutable evidence were presented proving the existence of a god then my ‘truth’ will be consigned to the trash bin, not become an alternative truth.

          I can almost hear you thinking as you read this’ see, I was right he has his own truth,’ and yes, I would agree to some extent. However whilst I would say that ‘what is perceived or believed as true by one is not perceived or believed as true by all’, Truth with a capital ‘T’ IS the same for everybody, at least in this one dimension we inhabit.

          The truth of whatever we as individuals seek may be beyond our grasp, maybe for a few days, months or years, maybe for our lifetime, maybe forever but we should never stop seeking it, never accept that what we perceive or believe is true, especially without evidence, because it is easier, more comforting or fits with our preconceived ideas. The truth is the truth is the truth.

          May the Sauce be with you.

        I am sorry I find it hard to believe your rape allegation. If one of us said that he/she should be banned. If that actually happened you should find it and give us references.
        As for rape and the bible, yes god advises it, specifically against children. Check out god’s commands to Moses against the Midianites in the book of numbers.

          That is not a rape reference. Atsap is merely telling you to shove it up your Khyber Pass. I have to agree.

        • Drained and Washed Clean says:

          I looked through the whole thing. The reason I didn’t find it was because that isn’t a rape reference. It was exactly what stylusmobilus said. If it was a rape reference, anyone who ever said “shove it up your ass” would be accused of it.

          You are constantly unable to understand and follow a conversation because of your lack of comprehension skills. I understand your age, which you constantly use as an excuse for your ignorance. However, you are choosing to come to a site that you do not understand, make comments that are ridiculous, and then cry “I’m young and innocent!” every time we come back at you. If you can’t take the heat then stay out of the kitchen.

    ZURI, see my first comment above. I will add that the definition of APPENDAGE in biology is ” Any subordinate or external organ or part, a a leg, tail, etc.” The term NOODLEY APPENDAGE is used correctly when referring to our beloved Spaghetti Monster. Stylemobilus and Drained are correct; my intent was to tell you to shove the idea that the FSM has hands up your ass. When you come here being critical of our website, you can expect that we will bluntly respond as we see fit.

    Frankly, I think we have wasted too much time trying to communicate with a 12-year-old. You write well in term sof grammar and spelling, but your thought processes are immature.

    May you be touched by His Noodley Appendages (Mentally, not Physically, to avoid any further charges of a threat of rape)

    X + Y + Z = 3, Z has a known value of 1. What is the value of X and Y?

    • Keith says:

      Indeed, “What” is the value of X and Y, in the same way that the difference between a duck is that one of its legs is both the same.

    • TheFewTheProudTheMarinara says:

      2

      • MathWiz says:

        So proud of you for failing the most basic of math problems.

        • google police says:

          Math + Wiz = Ass + Hole

        • Olio says:

          Stick around. I can fail at many things unfortunately. Math is only one.

        • Mal says:

          What does this have to do with anything?

        • MathWiz says:

          Not a damn thing Mal . . . not a damn thing.

          May your plate always have a bountiful amount of spaghetti with just the right amount of saucy goodness.

        • Keith says:

          All right, so what is the answer (out of curiosity), because to me the formula is meaningless. The value of either X or Y could be anything, even a negative number or a fraction.

        • TheFewTheProudTheMarinara says:

          I have a friggin’ Bachelor’s degree in math! I answered the question as completely as possible. Subtract 1 (or Z) from both sides of the equation and you get x + y = 2. You asked what the value of “X + Y” was. There it is – it’s a function. If X is 13,467 then Y is -13,465. If Y is 0, X is 2.

        • Mal says:

          Yeah, I did the same thing tFtPtM. I cannot think of a scenario where the value of x and y is not 2.

        • Keith says:

          Well, I interpreted his question to mean “what is the value of X and what is the value of Y?” If he/she had wanted the value of X and Y added together then I thought the question would be “What is the value of X plus Y, or “what is the sum of X and Y?” Linguistically, it is a nebulous question.

        • Apprentice Frederic says:

          Maybe tFtPtm will agree with me that the most basic of math problems is to state the problem clearly. “What is the value of X and Y?” probably means something different (at least in English grammar) than “What are the values of X and Y?” Further, if X is the number of occupants of the Men’s restroom, Y the number of occupants of the Ladies’, and Z the number of occupants of the baby-changing room, then only a few (X,Y) solutions (0,2), (1,1), and (2,0) seem reasonable, unless we believe in negative people (but Pastafarians are always positive!). The foregoing was just an excuse for me to recall an old joke: “Didja hear about the constipated mathematician??? He worked it out with logs!!!!”

        • TheFewTheProudTheMarinara says:

          I’m old enough to remember when that constipated mathematician worked it out with a slide rule (look that up in your Funk and Wagnalls, kids!). If there still ARE encyclopedias.

        • The Reverend Toni Rigatoni says:

          …………and I’m old enough to remember when he worked it out with a pencil! Over to Atsap..

        • The Reverend Toni Rigatoni says:

          Are there still pencils?
