Dunkin, the Angel

Postby L.S.S. on Wed Jan 18, 2006 8:53 pm

And lo, an Angel was sent onto the Pastafarians, a Messenger from the Noodly One- and His name was Dunkin.

To the Pastafarians He bestows this message: "Lo, let it be known that Donuts are good. And Ye shall Enjoy Them all The Days of Thy Life that Thou may make it to a Bakery before the Breakfast Hour."

Good man.

Really good man. :wink:

Anyway, RE: L.S.S.'s post:

The FSM is equally tolerant of any donut-eating preference you may have.

I'm still undecided whether I prefer Krispy Kreme or Dunkin.

My comment about the schism-of-the-month club:

Some people come in here with intransigent attitudes, proclaiming that they've had some vision or epiphany, and that they've been chosen by the FSM to spread the word of whatever idea they've had, and that anybody who says otherwise is wrong. These people are prime candidates for the schism-of-the-month club.

I'm glad to see you're different.

Now, I don't deny that donuts (or doughnuts, if you prefer) rock. What we try to do, when invoking the FSM, though, is to avoid specific statements elevating one thing above another. Why Dunkin, not Krispy Kreme? Why donuts instead of bagels?

The FSM's greatest moral legacy, in my opinion, is His allowance to you of your opinion, whatever it may be.

I'm going for schism-of-the-year (with Alpaca's help). You gotta lose the attitude and say YOU'RE wrong to get in the running for that one. And theophany beats epiphany any day.

Don't forget King Cakes, with the little plastic baby inside.

Don't forget Kringle, the bane of Midwestern swimsuits.

Hey, I eat King cakes every year! And I'm always the one who gets the baby, what is the meaning of that? An FSM miracle! :worship: :wink:

I went to New Orleans in January of last year. I'm very, very glad I did.

I have eaten many a king cake, being a resident of Louisiana.

And any self respecting southerner knows the best damn Donuts are from Krispy Kreme.

I do not eat them anymore, unfortunately.

There is a little donut shop down the road that has a HUGE bag of Day Olds for a buck fifty....and apple fritters the size of a hubcap.

Anyone realize that funnel cakes look like his Noodlyness?

Funnel cakes rock. Unfortunately, the only place I know of that sells them is the overpriced food stand at the local theme park, though I'm not particularly well-versed in Tampa-funnel-cake culture.

Doughnuts are mentioned several times in the Canonical ProvHerbs:

"10and some hours later a platter of doughnuts was brought forth.

11Finally, it was the scribe’s turn to speak. “O Wise Ones, I present to you the wisdom of the Pastafarian Believers, which I have gathered as you have asked.â€￾

12“Didst thee also check it for spelling errors?â€￾ the elders asked of her.

13She hung her head in shame. “No, I did not.â€￾ 14A great cry came issued from among them, and the doughnuts were removed.

15“Check these documents and bring them back in suitable condition that we may sort them and adjudicate them as worthy for inclusion in our Holy Book!â€￾ they yelled. 16The scribe left without her treasured doughnut, muttering words forever lost to history.

17For many more days and nights she toiled, chiseling out the bad spellings and grammar, 18and sorting the advice of the inspired Pastafarians into broad categories so that the Council would look upon her with favor. 19The scribe was determined that when next she brought the texts before the council, the doughnut of crème filling and chocolate-frosted top would be her prize."

That last one sounds like an eclaire. Yum....
