Is it time for an FSM billboard?

Published June 7th, 2011 by Bobby Henderson

billboard2Can you picture it?  It could be amazing, if we do it right.  I’ve mentioned it before and had mixed responses.  Here are my thoughts:

It can’t be negative.  As an example, I was not a fan of the You Know It’s A Myth banners put up by the American Atheists.

I am in favor of the AA’s substantive causes but I found this billboard campaign smug and petty (I feel the same about campaigns to remove Christmas trees from public venues). 

The high road.  If we put up a billboard, it must be a positive message – it must promote us and our ideals, not attack another group.  Satire and nonsense are great, attacking Christianity is boring and counter-productive.  I have no problem slamming Cthulhu and/or the IPU (She is in my drawing, also btw).

Send me your ideas/drawings. I’ll post them here. What would make a good billboard?  A pirate ship “full of beer and strippers”?  That might be interesting.  It’s been a while since I’ve seen a drawing of the Beer Volcano.  Send your submissions to me and we can decide what would look best.  We’ll worry about paying for the billboard space next.

    I choose 1B. It seems very tasteful. We don’t want to insult anyone now do we?

  2. Anne Zegers says:

    I kind of like the last one. Seems to embody what all religion would stand for.

  3. Brother Jozeph says:

    I like the first one the best.

    I like the second one.

    I’d choose 1 or 1b.

  6. TLAPD lover says:

    I like 1b the most.

  7. The king says:

    I dislike the fact that you say Cthulhu and FSM cant get allong.

    But on a brighter note I like 1b

  8. Bones POCR says:

    As a Pirate of the Conch Republic, I prefer #5

    • Rev. wulff says:

      I greatly admire the Conch Republic and hope to visit it in my lifetime. Since I haven’t been able to take an actual vacation since 1995 however, the chances seem slim.

      Raise a tankard for me, matey!
