A most interesting observation. Although I know little of the FSM my colleague Pastor Tjestenina, a Croatian emigre and expert on all the Great Religions (and devout observer of most) informs me it can often take him more than three weeks to consume a bowl of pasta. I readily admit until you put forward this theory I had my suspicions that the Pastor had been using this as an excuse to avoid his ceremonial duties.
Give a man a packet of spaghetti and he can give his family food for a day. But give that man a spaghetti plant and he can give his whole village something to talk about.
