I may print out some and leave a pile of them at our local gas station for people to see while refueling their cars. This may require a night mission. Maybe I'll scope out the area tonight to see if it would be possible. Perhaps tomorrow night I could get one of my agents to help me place the propaganda, though that would be unlikely as my agents are lazy and aren't Pastafarians, the poor souls, I've tried to convert them but no luck. I'll have to go alone. In a minute I'll go sort through my night mission gear and find what I need. (I have done this sort of thing before, don't not worry about me. Besides, I have His Noodliness to protect me.)

If possible I'll document the mission with photos.

I made these, I call it "Mini Propaganda." It's easier/cheaper to print and doesn't look too bad in black/white.

Nice work on the mini propaganda, i might print some out in black and white, I may well also go on a night mission (I like night missions as well) but i will put some in the shop windows and stuff, also i know a guy at the local indian takeaway so i shouldnt have a problem getting some in there!!

Myself and my fellow Pastafarian pirate scallywag Dani are attending the UK metalfest Bloodstock Open Air this year. We will be handing out pamphlets and teaching people the true way! I'll be sure to post the pics up here. I've already started on the BOA forum and it's going good!

The pamphlets work really well. Handed a bunch out during lunch one day (In full pirate gear) and got about 7,8 converts. That's not much, you say? It IS only a 300 pop. school... :wink:

None of the links work. :cry: .

I'll just use the brochures, in fact, I suspect that the brochures may be one and the same as the pamphlets.

Hey, I don't know if you guys have ever heard of canvassing? It's what I do for a profession. It involves picking an area of town, taking a crew out (or go on your own) and just knocking on doors from the hours of 4:30 to 9:00 p.m. As long as you notify the proper authorities (usually the local city official(s)) you should have no problem with the law. Just make sure the area you're in doesn't require a permit.

The thing is, most of us hate, I mean HATE people coming to our door. You know them, the Kirby salespeople, the religious groups, the political campaigns. Wouldn't it be awesome to go to people's doors knowing that you're probably going to make them laugh? That would totally be an awesome feeling. Don't try to convert them, don't push, don't get angry at the religious zealots that get pissed at you, just meet those 10-20 people a day that actually listen, and start to laugh. And hell, 4-5 of them might even get converted!

Of course, there'd have to be full pirate regalia, maybe some complimentary pasta...(goes off grumbling incoherently into his piratey beard)

Anyway, if anyone would be interested, especially people from Columbus, OH, let me know. I'll answer questions on this thread. Before you go out, though, let me caution. You do have to kind of know what you're doing. I can train people on this thread, or maybe start a new one, but you do need to know how to canvass.

All hail His Noodlyness, R'Amen
If God is willing to prevent evil, but not able,
Then He is not omnipotent
If He is able, but not willing
Then He is malevolent
If He is both able and willing,
Then whence cometh evil?
If He is neither able nor willing,
Then why call him God?

Y'HAAR! Most excellent, lassie!
Well then, here lies thah rub. Methinks that the laws and rules o' the grat state o' Oregon be a bit foggy in this ol' mind o' mine. (too much rum, alas) You'll hafta make sure that the blimey please-men won't be puttin' you in chains as ye go about yer holy quest!

Aside from that restriction, the entire idea of canvassing is based upon a structured conversation called a Rap. The Rap is the magical tool for getting the most effect out of whatever you are doing. It consists of 3 parts. The intro, the midrap, and the close. You can modify it to suit your needs in the field as you gain more experience as a canvasser.

The intro answers the 4 questions who who what what.
Who: Who you are (Bill, Joe, The scurvy pirate Blackbeard)
Who: Who you are representing (pastafarians everywhere!)
What: What you are doing (spreading the word of the flying spaghetti monster)
What: What you need (?) -This is the part I haven't decided yet. In my organization, we carry a clipboard with spaces to sign down for those who wish to join our organization. Other canvassing groups are working to get a petition passed, or simply fundraising for one cause or another. I haven't yet figured out what we need from people. A laugh, maybe? I'll have to get back to you, though. Work beckons. Any ideas, just let me know. I'll go into the midrap and the close when I get home.

May the sauce dripping from the noodle make squelching noises in the mouth of the populace. R'Amen

Continuing my earlier post, (and I do apologize for the length. If there's any objections, let me know and I'll ask to start a new thread. :) ) The rest of the Rap involves the midrap and the close. The midrap is the part in the conversation where you educate the contact with a fact or two, and then tell them what you need. In my organization, this involves saying something like "Ohio has lost 250,000 jobs just in the past five years, so we're out here fighting the good fight, doing a strength in numbers campaign to put pressure on politicians to get our jobs back. I'm sure I can count on your support, just put your name here..." Now for the FSM :fsm: canvass, I think you could say something comical such as "As you can see from this graph I have, the declining population of pirates has had a direct effect on global warming. I'm sure you agree that this is a very serious issue. What I need you to do is support pirates around the globe and sign this statement saying pirates are cool. :wink: "

Or whatever.The last part of the rap that we do is called the close. This is the part of the rap where you target for what you need. What we usually say is " Like I've been telling your neighbors, we are a non-profit organization out here fighting for your rights as a community. Members have been contributing 5 dollars for the evening. It's dues for an entire year, and it puts a lot of power behind your voice in our organization. I'm sure I can count on you for just 5 bucks today"

The biggest question I have for this is what we want to get out of this. I mean, the laughs and smiles are definitely the most important thing, and we really don't want to try to convert people unless they want to be converted. But there is, in the rap equation, a need for something to be targeted for. I was thinking, maybe...pasta/pasta sauce?

Intro:
"Ahoy there, matey/lass! I be the scurvy pirate (insert name here) here ter represent pastafarians round' the globe! We be spreadin' the word of His Holy Noodlyness, and we need but a mom't of yer time" (now of course, you will be in full pirate regalia with pamphlets and probably a large either chest or piratey-type storage device.) At this point in time, you will present the pamphlet to the person at the door.
Midrap:
"Now we be a tolerant group o' pasta-lovin' pirates, but Y'aar we be needin yer help. Ye see, as the population of piratey folk be dwindlin', the globe be warmin' up greatly. Now there is sometin' aught to do about it, I shan't lie ter ye there! What we be needin of you is teh take me scimitar here" (hand them the scimitar) " that be good, that be good! Now tell it to the world ' Y'aar, the world be needin' more pirates!' Excellent, Lass/Laddie, mos' excellent indeed."
Close:
After they wave the sword, make sure you get it back, then end with this." Thank ye, thank ye so much fer yer time. I do have but one humble request ter make of thee. We do be but a motley crew, this scurvy lot, and methinks ye might be of some assistance. Ye see, we have aught to celebrate with on this coming Friday night, as you know, a day of pasta and beverage! So I be thinkin' that you might be havin' a spare box o' pasta, or maybe a spare jar o' pasta sauce fer us teh take. Y'haar, thankee kindly, so kindly! We'll be headin on our way. Avast!"

And there you have it.

May the eternal redness of his pasta induced eternity bring us bliss and cheese to sniff. R'Amen
