In the clouds

Published June 25th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

I must admit I was a skeptic….


this afternoon when I picked up some photos I had shot of a thunderstorm over Lake Superior two nights ago. This is one of the photos I took of the storm—I did NOT see this image of The Flying Spaghetti Monster until AFTER the film was developed at Wal-Mart! I SWEAR!!!

Pirate ships come in all sizes

With the Grace of FSM on our side, my friends and embarked on a quest last weekend to end global warming.



Global Warming, Pirates, and the Rise of the FSM

Published June 24th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

The Cincinnati Beacon notices a relationship between global warming and pirates.

General consciousness about global warming seems to have reached a new critical mass, perhaps thanks to Al Gore’s movie and the growing awareness of green technologies.

But has anyone noticed, while more people become aware of global warming and take steps to combat it, that our culture has become filled with even more pirates? Pirates, in many ways, are experiencing a renaissance in America right now.

Looking at an old photo I took of the petroglyphs at Newspaper Rock, I was shocked to find a depiction of FSM! See upper left.

JollyFish hat

Published June 22nd, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

At long last, the jollyfish scarf, which became a jollyfish hat, is finished. I’m giving it to my pal tonight when he comes over for festivities.

When you have recruited your pirate missionaries, you might want to think about organizing a knitathon. Sort of like the knitathons that go on for soldiers when we’re at war. Those pirates will need hats, particularly if they succeed, and the planet cools off again.



Small win for Science in the UK

Published June 22nd, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

Clearly a result of the London Pirate Demonstration – A recent statement by the UK prime minister includes the following:

The Government is clear that creationism and intelligent design are not part of the science National Curriculum programmes of study and should not be taught as science.

The full statement can be found here


pirate demonstration in london

Published June 21st, 2007 by Bobby Henderson


The Pirates were out again at the Mass Lone demos in London. As well as a demo in support of the FSM, we had demos for “better prosthetics for pirates”, “make talk like a pirate day a nations holiday” and a demo for shorter planks.

The mass lone demos are to highlight the supidity of the SOCPA law which says that people have to get permission to protest outside Parliament for face up to 51 weeks in jail or a big fine.

Student restores pirate flag

Published June 21st, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

A bunch of people sent me this article about the restoration of an 18th century Jolly Roger pirate flag.

The article doesn’t mention if the student who did the work, Bonnijo Chervensock, is a Pastafarian.

I found this interesting:

I cleaned the flag very carefully, to remove dirt and to return the fabric to a more neutral ph – it was extremely acidic which would be damaging in the long term – but without removing the gunpowder which is an important part of its history.

Having cleaned each little painted fragment individually, I attached each piece onto dyed silk crepeline fabric using an adhesive technique.

I then stitched the consolidated skull and crossbones onto the flag, which had been stitched onto a new fabric.

It makes me wonder, though, what the pirates would have thought of all this painstaking detail work. It seems opposite of the their culture.

When I came into possession of some gold doubloons, I immediately smashed apart the protective plastic case they were trapped in. I used a hammer and a screwdriver. Out of respect.

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.
