FSM Forever–Arizona license plate

Published July 26th, 2011 by Bobby Henderson


Toni sent in this superb example of license plate evangelism.  Excellent! 

On the plate, is it just me or does it look like there’s a smoke trail coming off the Saguaro cactus, up behind where the ‘4’ is printed.  It’s as if the cactus has caught fire from the desert heat. 

I lived there a few years ago and on one particularly scorching day the interior plastics in my car deformed from the heat. The rear view mirror became unaffixed to the window.  I left it dangling by the wire for spite.  I don’t live there anymore.

    The smoke is an anti-counterfeit feature. Missouri’s plates have something similar.

      Can’t you tell? The “smoke” is obviously His Noodly Appendage blessing the license plate. I would think that anyone could see that!!!

        If the prophet can’t see it, he’s no longer the prophet. Make him walk the plank!

        I agree – and if you zoom in at about 400%, I’m pretty sure you can tell that the mountain under the ‘S’ is actually a beer volcano

    As much as I am a Pastafarian, I think this is a doctored photo. . the letters aren’t raised off the plate, like they should be if they were struck by a press. . they are flat. . . but I applaud putting his noodliness out there!

    Long Boil the Flying Spaghetti Monster!

      On further research, I checked a website that allows you to check if a license plate’s letter/number combination in Arizona has been issued, and the combination of “FSM4EVR” has been taken, so perhaps this is real. . all I can say is He works in mysterious ways!

        I lived in AZ. The plates there are not stamped on a press any longer. This is a real plate.

    • Toni says:

      I know someone who was pulled over & detained for a couple of hours because the “authorities” weren’t advised re: the new plates. The officer didn’t let on but.. I’ll bet that cop felt awfully silly.

    I had to check the UK number plates, as we call them here.

    There are thousands available. Way too many for me to look through.

    I think some clever use of stickers could turn that infiniti medallion into the FSM

      Fine idea! I’ll have to work on that :)

      Perhaps a Pastafarian from each state in the Union could sport such Evangelism upon their rear (plate)
