E. Coli plush or proponents of FSMism?

Postby Slausage on Thu Feb 01, 2007 12:06 pm

I came across this at ThinkGeek, and it bears a striking resemblance to the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Although it is described as an E. Coli plush toy, I believe it is a clever attempt by ThinkGeek to promote the Flying Spaghetti Monster and spread his noodliness to the technically savvy masses. And so I submit this issue to my fellow Pastafarians for review:

Ah yes, the E. Coli plush. We've seen this one around. I theorize that it may be subtle recognition of the One True Creator by these geeks, or perhaps they are unknowing servants of His Noodliness by marketing this plush.

I flippin' love Giant Microbes. They must have used the FSM as the template for their E. coli plushie.

Looks more like FSM mutating into a potato. Will the potato be FSMs next avatar? Will He pass through a "french" fries stage, to smoothen the change? To be continued... :fsm:
