Check out the billboard ideas...

....on the main page! I especially like Dougs....

What do you think? I reckon His Noodlyness would be proud, and get drunk in celebration immediately! :drunk:

I like dougs too. It's got the inspirational sunset thing going on, and the pirate ship, and it's pretty easy to tell what's going on. I think for a billboard, we don't want to focus too much on having lots of words, but we definitely want the FSM, pirate ship, etc. I would like to see a heaven focused one, since that really is one of our main selling points (and might be a little controversial, too!).

I agree qwerty, he's done about four or five now and they all look fantastic. They'd make great stickers too. We have absolutely nailed this and I am sure it is His Noodlyness at work!

I found Doug's contributions here.

I love them! I do hope they appear in the shop as stickers and badges. Billboard posters would be a little impractical for me, but decorating my granny-walker, bicycle, trailer, wheelchair, badge waistcoat, etc.; that would be practical (piratical?).

Thanks for the link Tigger, apologies for my laziness in not doing it myself. I did suggest on the main page that we make stickers of these, maybe you should drop a reply under it similar to what you posted above.

Thanks, Pastor; I added my 2¢.

BTW, anyone know how to add an avatar to posts on the main site? :confused:

I've never tried the gravitar link Tigger, but I think you just hit the blue 'g' logo and go from there.

*Prays to His Noodlyness for a Touching. As usual, gets totally ignored, but can smell napolitana sauce and stale beer, although of a good quality*....nah, I got nothin'

Excellent comment too. I don't put stickers on my car but I would have one of these. Through my high school children His Noodlyness has Touched the local high schools, and the vulnerable are learning the Truth. They woul love to have stickers to place in strategic, permissible places to drive the Sauce home.

Yes, I think it's through Gravatar. At the Gravatar website you link your email address to a avatar, and thereafter, for any website that uses Gravatar, your image pops up automatically with your comment. I've seen it work at a lot of websites (but not, alas, Pharyngula).

On the front page I notice a fine contribution: #2. Try Pasta, by Jo (Cardinal Fang). Wow! Is there no limit to CF's talents?

:stupid:

CF is a very talented lady!

I think that hers would also be wonderful as handouts; I'd love to have a stash of them to give away on Fridays when I get a lot of attention for my pirate gear!

Yep, it's a beauty too. Fingers crossed, His Noodlyness may want stickers for his beer fridge, and not appear to Bobby at all, prompting him to do stickers with CF's in there as well.

Another possibility is the basic "Teach the controversy" idea. Perhaps Darwin on one side and his Noodliness on the other? That goes right to the heart of what this is all about anyway.

I was trying to do a "teach the controversy" one but couldn't get it right.

You did well enough with yours. I love the "Flimsy Moral Standards" bit. I spat my drink when I read that.
