The Boston Herald ran a story about a man wearing a pasta strainer on his head for a gun license identification photo in with the “funny criminal” stories. He was simply observing his religion. No crime was committed. Not cool.
Other news outlets have reported that he was cleared by a psychiatrist, and his legally purchased and maintained weapons were returned to him.
We Pastafarians are not crazies! Maybe some of us, but not all of us. =)
Podcast: Play in new window
This week’s episode, I give an overview of the CoFSM “The eight I rather you didn’ts” and the general tone of the FSM religion overall.
I also talk a little about the South Australian atheist who rubs the law officials the wrong way with his FSM pasta colander photo antics in relation to his gun license.
I did take some liberties with filling in the blanks when it came to the censored parts of the 8 and filled in the bad words with real bad words where appropriate, and intentionally gave #5 two verbal variations.
Australia has been popping up in FSM news quite a bit lately, but this story has really taken the community by storm. Check out the link below, it’s a good read.
I might make a bigger version of the Flying Spaghetti Monster tomorrow, but this is the one I made tonight. It makes the game so much more fun =)
1) When we recognized that fossils and dinosaur bones were hidden for us to find by The Flying Spaghetti Monster to test our faith.

This one was super fun to record, and the first time I had some audio clips for content. The show starts with a brief review of Time Bandits IMDB, is followed by a reading of an anti-Flying Spaghetti Monster article on a religious blog, and ends with audio from Robert Barron and a voicemail. Sorry for saying “Evolutionism”, I meant “Evolution”. R’Amen
p.s. I am aware that of this group of talented actors deserve the respect of being referred to as “little persons”. Sometimes I get excited in the rhythm of recording spoken word. =)
I found this on my travels on the interwebs. It totally looks like the Flying Spaghetti Monster. =)
This guy just simply gets it wrong. He discounts the Flying Spaghetti Monster as a God in a Genus, not the creator of earth. Forget that he attributes the origin of FSM to Richard Dawkins, not Bobby Henderson. Forget that he likens Pastafarians to atheists. Forget that he intentionally uses Latin to confuse his audience.
The important thing to remember, is that followers of FSM HAVE EVIDENCE that the world was created by his noodliness our lord after a night of drinking too much, but he can’t even prove that his god exists by his own admission!
I found this on twitter; great stuff! Thanks @APLobby
I wanted to sincerely thank you for writing the article, “Celestial Teapots, Flying Spaghetti Monsters, and Other Silly Atheist Arguments“.
Thank you for getting the facts about Bobby Henderson at least partially correct. Thank you also for acknowledging that we have evidence that a Flying Spaghetti Monster created the universe.
One thing you got really wrong was in this statement. “What Henderson actually showed was (a) a profound ignorance of the design argument”.
I would argue that what he showed was THE profound ignorance of the design argument.
