    Will follow up on that Ytube cat. Thanks. AND the ceiling cat, thanks too. Will be offline another week or so, going to miss the talk, but LOTS of swotting to do and just have to knuckle down. Thanks for all the laughs. I thoroughly, thoroughly, enjoy your collective wit(s) Hope another real juicy discussion topic is unearthed – speaking of which, I wonder whatever happened to Reverend Harris?

    • Keith says:

      Good luck with your swotting. Remember to take the occasional beer break.

    Ceiling Cat: Oh damn man that was FUNNY!

    • Rasputin says:

      Dear St. G., shut up and STUDY !!! (Sorry if I sound like a parent.)

      • The Sauceror says:

        Waaaat. Shut up and study. Shut up and study. Waaaaat. Sorry if I sound like a parrot. Waaaat. Pieces of eight. Waaaat.

  3. Valerie King says:

    BTW Booby, your chart is wrong. 45,000 pirates in 1860 should show a decrease in temperature. If you can’t get anything else right, you should at least be able to get that.

    • Rasputin says:

      Dear Valerie King, that doesn’t follow because they were drunk at the time.

    • The Sauceror says:

      Valerie, if you look very closely at the chart, you will notice that this event was predicted by the FSM and the prophet centuries before the event occurred. This is known as “The double-triple 1860′s Paradox”. The FSM knew all along that this was going to happen, so he made up for the deficit with an excess of pirates to offset the lower predicted temperatures. Praise the FSM! His strategy worked. The lower temperatures were replaced by higher temperatures in later decades and the chart was once again normalized. This event only adds further proof to the already infinite amount of evidence that the FSM and the prophet are utterly infallible. The prophet could easily verify this, if he ever talked to us.

      • Rasputin says:

        Valerie’s biggest problem with global warming being related to the number of pirates is that the graph is slightly wrong.

    I am happily wrighting a science paper over the theory of the FSM creating the universe. I hope there is all sorts of information laid about in the world of the interwebz good day.

    • The Sauceror says:

      Dear Gavin, I hope that you will post this exciting science paper, in the form of a link, on our website. I can’t wait to read and discuss it with you and our fellow pirates. It should be a lot of fun, as well as being quite educational. I hope that you will post this paper on a different page than this one, though. If you haven’t noticed, this particular page is all in itty-bitty teeny-tiny letters that a drunk, old, one-eyed pirate can barely read. Please check out some of the other pages in our church that have letters that are legible to us old geezers. I’m sure that many of us pirates would be happy to assist you in this most delicious endeavor. Ramen.

      • Rasputin says:

        Dear Gavin, Welcome and Aaarrgghhh! The term “Pastafarian” might be seen as a rip-off of “Rastafarian”, but I see it as being derived from “wayfarer”. Like the pirates of old, we travel as pilgrims to discover our rich booty of pasta, beer, strippers and scientific credibility.

    • Rasputin says:

      I wouldn’t mind the portrait, providing it could be hung beside pictures of the FSM, the Buddha and Muhamed. What could possibly go wrong?

    • The Sauceror says:

      Dear Rev. Chamberlain, that was a most educational link. I learned many new things that I never knew before, and I’m sure that many Christians would benefit from this educational experience as well. Even if it’s only to learn something about the very religion that they preach but don’t understand, they can at least gain some useful information to back up their wild claims. I agree with Rasputin that if there is going to be a portrait of any god, there must be a fair depiction of all gods, including Muhamed. Maybe, especially Muhamed, because there has been so much misunderstanding between our cultures. A depiction of Muhamed would go a long way toward reconciling the historical differences between the various confrontational religions– excluding our own. We would prefer to get along with everyone, and respect each others’ right to their own views, as well as reasonable critical analysis and humor about our own and others’ views. This would seem to be a fair olive branch to many of the Islamists who believe that their bombings, assassinations, and murders have been depicted unfairly in western media. Any reasonable, murderous Islamist would surely see the inherent fairness of a Muhamed depiction placed on equal grounds with all the other gods. Such a depiction of Muhamed would very likely persuade the Islamist extremists to give up the notion that it’s ok to strap bombs to a child and have him walk into a crowded room, or to blow up buildings, or to carry an AK-47 onto a train. While many Islamists may not have many portraits of Muhamed, Charlie Hebdo does have much experience with such portraits. Any reasonable Islamist martyr should be proud to have such a noble portrait made of their profit.

      • Rev. Chamberlain says:

        That painting sadly was a fixture of my young life, hanging prominently in the homes of my parents and grandparents. I was viscerally creeped out by it long before I came to understand its utter silliness on a more intellectual level.

    • TheFewTheProudTheMarinara says:

      Funny. He didn’t LOOK Jewish.

      • Rasputin says:

        Jesus looking all blue-eyed aryan and gentle is OK, but it really CREEPS ME OUT when there’s a picture of the bloke hanging naked with blood pouring out. I mean, f*cking hell, who wants that image on their wall? It’s like putting up images of Jack the Ripper’s victims or The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. What kind of sicko does that?

        • The Sauceror says:

          Yeah, I agree. It’s embarrassing enough to get nailed to a cross — but without clean underwear? That’s downright humiliating.

  5. Lemon says:

    what the actual fuckery is this

    • The Sauceror says:

      Please explain what you mean, Lemon.

      • Rasputin says:

        Dear Lemon, that’s exactly what Kenneth Ross said when he opened the door into the wrong room and found St. G’s pink elephant waiting for him.

        • The Sauceror says:

          That would be an “actual fuckery”, wouldn’t it?

      • Rev. Chamberlain says:

        Fuckery. Now there’s a good word. I studied under an older lawyer who was fond of that word. When the other side was up to no good, he would say “There’s fuckery afoot.”

        • Keith says:

          There is also “fucktardery”.

        • The Sauceror says:

          There are many fucktards in a fucktardery. Some of them are public-fucktards, who try to fuck everyone over and over again. Those are the Republicfucktards. Right now there are 17 Republicfuctards, but one of them Trumps them all.
