Jolly Pirate fish?

Postby climberslacker on Mon Jun 29, 2009 2:44 pm

Ok so the jolly pirate fish is the symbol of our church right?

how exactly did it come about? Just a pirate version of the christian fish?

Ok thanks!

Exactly. Have you read The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster? It is marvelous, it is The Truth, and you can find it at your local bookseller.

Yep, it's a less obvious parody of the christian Icthys. The FSM and Darwin versions are a bit blatant.

Plus, the pirate fish is a pirate and has an eye-patch. What's not to like? :fsm_yarr:

Nope, it's what's leftover after Nef Yoo (you will see him with a big lolly in his mouth) has his dinner.
I had to fight the little runt to get it, he hit me with his lolly.

What section is it typically in? I've checked both the humor and religion sections at the local mega-bookstores, couldn't find it.

I just had to say:

I was on the train this morning wearing my 'Touched by his Noodly Appendage' T Shirt and a guy sat down opposite me and said: 'Nice T-Shirt'...Hurrah, that's the first time I've had a comment from a stranger.

I'm going to get a Pirate Fish one as well because my old one is getting a bit grubby and stained.

You spoke to a stranger on the train? Are you sure you're british? :idiot:

:lol:

Could be a northerner - it tends to be the southerners who don't want to talk to anyone. I'm a tweener - born in the south but family from "oop north", so I still talk to random people on the train etc.

I know what you're saying...in this scenario the good old FSM was working his magic. I'm from Wales where people talk to each other and about each other a bit too much if anything, but if someone talks to you on the London Underground you immediately assume they're weird or drunk...and they usually are!

I've only come across it in the humor section, almost always only a single copy sandwiched between other books, never face-front.

This especially sucks, because people are always looking for a red hardcover. It's a white paperback, with an equally white spine that has the title in red, Bobby Henderson in black, and the Villard logo.

A parody? Isn't it the other way around?

I thought that the pirate fish thing was just something we used because of the fossil that was found... :tongue:

Talking on the subway? Hell, on the NYC subways, people avoid prolonged eye contact, let alone conversation.
