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.

    As we reject Dogma outright, I feel that # 7 would be the most appropriate choice as it does not impose dogmatic principles but get’s the message across. That being said, #5 is just plain AWESOME.

  2. Ben says:

    I like #6 and #8, just cuz…

    Bear in mind that the device will not produce the effects you want without including a
    sound diet and exercise program. Did you ever have a feeling that every time you munch on a rice cake, you feel hungrier and want to grab another one.
    Athletes who use honey rather than sports drinks had a much better endurance level, and what’s amazing is that they recovered much faster.

    Effective billboards need to be simple, interesting and brief. In that regard, Numbers 1 and 2 by Doug work well. Number 6 is also good, and is more the shape of the average billboard … I haven’t seen very many panorama billboards like 1, 2, 7 & 8.

    BILLBOARD MESSAGE #1
    Pastafaranism … not just for atheists anymore.

    BILLBOARD MESSAGE #2
    Pastafaranism … a faith worth believing in.

    BILLBOARD MESSAGE #3

    All Are Welcome Here.
