Greetings fellow Pastafarians...
It appears the rumours are true. An ancient shroud has indeed been discovered in the Middle East. It appears to have burned into its thread a likeness of his Noodliness, the Flying Spaghetti Monster. We believe it to be a genuine divine relic.
The context in which it was found - along with the skeletal remains of a midget, a pirate's chest and some trees - lend credence to its authenticity.
Carbon-14 dating results have been inconclusive. The fraudulent machine claims that the cloth is only some 400 years old, dated roughly to the time of Leonardo DaVinci. But there is clearly a reason for this...
FSM must have divinely intervened during the Carbon dating in order to test our faith. And as any true Pastafarian knows, when reality appears to conflict with our beliefs, the Pastal Infallibility rule dictates that reality must be wrong.
Ladies and Gentlemen, we proudly present to you the Noodley Shroud of Tourism... may you be blessed by his Noodley Appendage... RAMEN Bruddas!!!
