No, really - look!



I'm certain that's him. His name is, apparently, Rhizophysid siphonophore or somesuch.

Here's a video.

Hey, he boiled for your sins!

Amongst the eclectic things I've done and have, I have an ordination for the Church of the Flying Sphaghetti Monster. I have a different legitimate ordination registered with the county so I can actually perform legal marriages. I will be performing a FSM theme wedding in November. That's what they want. I will stick a metal colander on my head and perform a silly service with the correct words for civil service, and I hope they have a happy life.

I even crocheted a FSM 3D ski-cap for a friend in 2006, found out he hated 'toques' so sent it to Adam Savage of Mythbusters, who collects unusual headgear. I've seen it in the background of an interview he did in his collection of stuff. I still have the instructions and need to make a new one now. 40 hours with a crochet hook, here I come.

I respect all faiths. The FSM came about as a challenge successfully mounted against Kansas voting in Creationism must be taught in their schools. The fellow won. In our modern terms, it went viral.

Good of you Burra, to share an elusive shot of his Noodleness.

Check it out, the Flying Spaghetti Monster had babies. Aaaaw! Or, that could just be the seed heads on my clematis (Virginia virgin's bower, var. Clematis virginiana).

You can tell the Hogfather has come to visit when there's ashes on the carpet, pig footprints on the roof and the pork pies have been eaten and the sherry drunk. (Bonus points if you get that reference!)

And you can the FSM has come to visit when he leaves his little mementos too....
He was THERE!! He CAME!! YAY!!!

Pearl,

I have come to claim the bonus points for identifying Terry Pratchett's Hogfather book. My husband and I have all of his books, including the ones for kids because we were kids once, and still are some days. I loved it when Death had to take over for the Hogfather and hand out presents. And the flying pigs instead of horses was a plus.

Bonus points for Robin! I am a few books shy of a full set these days. I was waiting for my mom once, she was getting a haircut in a shop in the mall, I was re-reading Hogfather, hit the scene with the pigs taking a wee... And had to leave the shop, laughing like a loon! Too good to read that scene when you are in a mall... I couldn't hold it together at all!

And if you don't read the kids books, the Tiffany Aching ones, you never learn about Nac Mac Feegles!!
And now I'm laughing out loud, scaring the cat...

Points for you!!

Pearl,

I have the Tiffany Aching books and love them. I want some Feegles of my own to help out around the homestead but the booze bill would be too high. Crivens!

And I agree that when the pigs took a whiz in the department store I laughed out loud.

Amanda, I haven't seen the TV version! Something to look forward to this winter.

I can see major advantages to being a spaghetti deity.

If they decide to hang you up on a cross with nails, chances are you will just slide down to the bottom , relatively unharmed.

40 days and nights in the desert would be no big deal, just to rehydrate at some later date.

The blind beggar would be startled by the sight of a Spaghetti Monster, so that all could see that he is healed.

If a priest offers up some spaghetti and says this is the body of monster, it's likely to be believed.

If you are offered lashes, you have plenty of appendages to lash back.

Jack would finally have something else to eat so he doesn't have to live off only beans. And he could use that monster, as a shuttle to get up and down from his stalk.

No need to walk on water, absorb it so that everyone can take a walk.

With so much pasta in the water, the fish are bound to fill the nets.

And of course, it would be easy to feed the multitude.

I have some kombucha going that always ends up pretty high proof, wonder if I could bribe Feegles with it?

And yeah, I laughed out loud, lost it, was close to ending up on the floor, and had to walk out of the hair salon
Some Pratchett scenes make me laugh even the 10th time I read the book
I have health stuff that makes me need to stay awake, but laying down, at night for 3-4 hours every night. I don't want to read anything that I will want to get up and look up stuff, or takes notes from. I bounce back to the Pratchett books again every few months, read back through them yet again. Always find things I didn't catch before.
