nice mural

Published December 15th, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

Dear Mr. Henderson–

I have a picture enclosed a picture of a large mural that myself and a fellow pastafarian put up on the ceiling of our school to help spread the good news. I also suggest that fellow Pastafarian Zach Heesche be agknowledged for his martyrdom to his great noodlyness. He was all but destroyed by the librarians after printing it out. I am happy to say that for a small South Dakota high school, I was very impressed with the response i got from the other students. In the last 24 hours I have officially recruited 38.  After making a “Facebook” group I was surprised to see even more interest.

RAmen–

festive Holiday lights

Published December 15th, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

Mark Pile of BSAlert.com created this FSM light display:

fsm_christmas_lights01.jpg fsm_christmas_lights02.jpg

We tried him out in front of the house tonight. Only two cops showed
up. Tomorrow I’m going to put this guy way up high in the air off
the roof. It should be quite amusing… His eyes blink green and
red… He’s about six feet wide and was made with 63 feet of
lightrope, 140 christmas lights, two spools of heavy wire and a tond
of cable ties.

Mark has created a tutorial showing how he created this display on his site. Here’s the link.

Thanks, Mark – Nice work.

*Update* this was boingboing’d here

happy Holiday season everyone

Published December 1st, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

Happy Holidays!

A Holiday message from me:

It’s that time of year again. Many will be celebrating Christmas, some Hanukkah, some Kwanzaa, whatever. Pastafarians will be celebrating our holiday, named “Holiday“. And it’s not a specific date so much as it is the Holiday season, itself.

I hate to go into specifics as to what and how Pastafarians celebrate/worship. The rituals and ceremonies are not important. What is important is that Pastafarians reject dogma and formalism (the emphasis on form over content). So, there are no specific, handed-down-from-above sort of specific rituals or ceremonies. Pastafarianism is more of a state of mind than a set of rules to follow. So enjoy the Holiday season, and celebrate it in a way that is pleasing to you and those around you.

That said, I would like to point out how much Pastafarianism has spread in a remarkably short amount of time. A few years ago, you’d be wished a “Merry Christmas” by everyone. Now, by our schools, businesses, goverment, on tv – everywhere – what do you hear? We’re not offered the Christian greeting “Merry Christmas“, but instead a happy “Holiday” season. Holiday, is of course OUR Pastafarian holiday, and it’s amazing to see how it’s been accepted, embraced even, by so many people.

Consider this: the Washington Post reports that a few people are upset with the White House “Christmas” cards, because they fail to mention Christmas. Instead, and not surprisingly based on President Bush’s presumed closet-Pastafarianism, the 1.4 million recipients of the White House “Christmas” card are wished a happy “Holiday season”. Say what you will about our president, but to send a Pastafarian propaganda message to over a Million people, in defiance of the Christian Evangelists who are supposedly his base – that took a huge set. I was so Touched that I took the time to write Mr. Bush a note. Click to read it, if you want.

So, that’s all. Have a safe and happy Holiday season. Remember that Flying Spaghetti Monster merchandise is not only fashionable, but also serves as propaganda.

An original comedy, just in time for Christmas, that celebrates the twisted and hilarious history of the new religious phenomenon, Flying Spaghetti Monsterism.

FSM Money Stamp

Published November 20th, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

dollarwide1.jpg

Nick Jones came up with this FSM money stamp. It covers up “In God We Trust” and replaces it with “In Pasta We Trust”. I like it.

Closeup: dollarwide2.jpg

BoingBoing had a post a while ago showing a tiny stamp to strike out the word “God” from paper money:

Which prompted Kim Moser to suggest the following FSM stamp:

Here’s what I want to know: how many people would be interested in a money stamp? We could have them made if there’s enough interest.

FSM Holiday Greeting Cards

Published November 10th, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

holiday_card.jpg

Is there any interest in FSM Holiday cards?

* Update *

Ok, I’m going to have cards made. They’re not going to be holiday-specific, though. I think the front will be the “Touched by His Noodly Appendage” creation painting, and the back will be the Pirate Fish. These will be 5″x7″, printed on 120# card stock, folded, with the inside blank (for Holiday greetings or propaganda, drawings of midgets, or whatever.)
Here’s what I’m thinking:

Front: card_front.jpg Back: card_back.jpg
Unless there’s a huge demand, the first printing will be ~ 2k cards, which is going to price them at around $1 each, including an envelope. Reasonable?

* Update 2 *

The cards are being printed. Buy them here.

Purchase the Gospel

An elaborate spoof on Intelligent Design, The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is neither too elaborate nor too spoofy to succeed in nailing the fallacies of ID. It's even wackier than Jonathan Swift's suggestion that the Irish eat their children as a way to keep them from being a burden, and it may offend just as many people, but Henderson puts satire to the same serious use that Swift did. Oh, yes, it is very funny. -- Scientific American.
