FSM on Futurama

Published March 7th, 2009 by Bobby Henderson


Thanks to Pastafarian Ricardo for spotting this FSM sighting in the opening credits of the Futurama movie Beyond the Wild Green Yonder. Here’s a video:

Sorry, the video is no longer available. Fox says we infringed their copyright.

Retarded. Suck it, Fox.


Some of us suspected there were Pastafarians at the Futurama camp after the release of Beast with a Billion Backs. Pastafarian Piscu makes the argument better than I can:

fsmbeast1.jpgGod is noodly
fsmbeast3.jpgBender, the Pirate

Warning – Spoilers:

First, consider this: the most popular character in Futurama is surely Bender. So, it is reasonable to state that, if the writers and creators of Futurama want to express some of their beliefs, they will clearly do it via the robot itself.

About Bender, we already know that he is a great beer drinker and uses to indulge himself with “hookerbots”, which are the robotic version of strippers. These are obviosly references to our Paradise, its beer volcano and strippers factory.

But in The Beast with a Billion Backs, Bender’s faith is made much more clear. In fact, near the end of the movie, we see him dressed like a pirate and leading a ship of pirate robots (screen cap attached)! This is undoubtedly the ultimate evidence of the fatc that even the Futurama people are part of our Church!

But there’s even more! The reason of Bender’s pirating is an attack to a planet-sized being from another universe, named Yivo, who has taken with him all of the people from our universe, making them fall in love with him. And the shape of Yivo is what is more surprising (screen cap attached). In fact, Yivo looks a lot like the FSM, but there are some differences: he is tentacled too, but has only ONE central meatball and ONE eye. So, he is probably a represantation of a fake god, who pretends to be His Noodleness but actually isn’t! Furthermore, when we see the “heaven” that stands on Yivo’s surface (screen cap attached), we can notice that it is very similar to the “classical” heaven, the one which people usually believe in.

So, what we are able to conclude is that Bender, who is a pirate (hence, a FSM follower) engages in a battle against a fake FSM (Yivo) to rescue humanity (he actually states, while fighting the monster, “I’m rescuing you!”) from that false paradise, and he finally succedes in his mission. This is an obvious metaphor of the struggle the FSM Church has to carry on to bring people to the true faith. Of course, we don’t intend to move war on any other religion, but the whole story is just representive of the great effort we have to put in our mission.

What do you guys think?


Biology book sighting

Published March 4th, 2009 by Bobby Henderson



Scanning my biology book last week, my fellow Pastafarian Evan and i were struck with amazement as to what we saw. What the words described as a “repressor protein” we clearly recognized as His Noodliness. Once again, His noodly appendage is thrust into science to show the non-believers that He created everything that there is. I thought it strange that He touched us because Evan and i are from Green Bay, where last year that whole City Hall Christmas display debacle occurred and when someone tried to put up a likeness of Him next to the manger, our mayor publicly criticized our religion in the city newspaper.

Piglet Squid

Could it be an ancient relative?


Here’s some info from the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium who found this thing:

Piglet Squid, Helicocranchia pfefferi

This funny looking squid is about the size of a small avocado and can be found most commonly in the deepwater (greater than 100 m or 320 ft) of virtually all oceans. Its habit of filling up with water and the funny location of its siphone with a wild-looking ‘tuft’ of eight arms and two tentacles had prompted scientists to name it the piglet squid.

The body is almost totally clear revealing a dark mass that is the internal organs and barely visible, feather-like gills. Pigment organs dot the surface of the skin. In the picture a row of these ‘chromatophores’ provide a smile-like look. There are two small finst at the opposite end of the body from the head. Very little known of its biology. It has been observed from submersibles in the head down oriengation, but no one is sure why. It is a sluggish swimmer with ammonium ions in its body fluid that help keep it bouyant. A large light producing organ (photophore) is located beneath each of its large eyes.

Ever take a closer look at the logo for FrostWire, which is basically LimeWire with a different skin and free “LimeWire Pro” service? It looks like *all* pirates are His chosen people, not just the nautical variety.

SuperBowl sighting

I am a Union Stagehand. I was doing the load out of the NFL Experience in Tampa. I was pulling out carpet and tape when I was pleasantly touched by his noodly appendage.

Touched … permanently

Joseph’s leg, after getting the tattoo.
After it healed.

I have been converted.

Doubt my veracity? I awoke from a dream-like state and found I had been touched by His Noodly Appendage on my left (natch) leg.

Purchase the Gospel

An elaborate spoof on Intelligent Design, The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is neither too elaborate nor too spoofy to succeed in nailing the fallacies of ID. It's even wackier than Jonathan Swift's suggestion that the Irish eat their children as a way to keep them from being a burden, and it may offend just as many people, but Henderson puts satire to the same serious use that Swift did. Oh, yes, it is very funny. -- Scientific American.
