The Tampa Tribune featured the FSM Holiday display in today’s paper, front page.

The sign says “A closed mouth catches no noodly appendages.”

And here’s the Christian nativity display that started all of this:


What do you think — next year, will the Florida Capitol allow any religious displays?

Thanks to Jay Nelson for the photos.

      Why should X-tians get to put up a display for a pagan holiday? Get *your* own religious day you friggin moron.

      Pastafarians celebrate “Holiday” during the December period. Any overlap with the Christmas period is as coincidental as the relationship between Christmas and ancient winter solstice celebrations surely is.

      Christmas isn’t a Christian holiday. The Christmas tree, Santa Claus, Reindeer,Holly, mistletoe, Stockings, etc. even the date Dec. 25 were all comandeered from ancient Pagan religions so anyone has the right to celebrate. We are considering changing the name to Pastafariamas. Now tell us who is the moron?

    I thought that all of the main Christian holidays were hi-jacked from pagan festivals. But surely, all are times of decoration and celebration of mythology. So, I think that anyone should be allowed to present a mythical scene and suspect the competition would attract crowds of admirers. Personaly, I would look forward to seeing the Creationist one with a T-Rex in the stable. Aaaarghhhh..

      Mr. Bean added a tyrannosaurus to a nativity scene. He also added a Coldstream Guard band, a removal van, dalek, Somua s35, something that is probably meant to be a Jagdpanther and a helicopter. Let’s see that outside a government building at Christmas.

        I—LOVE—MR—BEAN! And I love that episode!!

      • Captain Birdseye says:

        Mr Bean is obviously a Creationist scientist and he got away with it. Should be inside the building beside his version of Whistler’s Mother. Sounds perfect for the FSM Creation Museum. Aaaaarghhhh…
