Speaking of random, weird stuff that attracts small occult followings — if you haven’t heard about the followers of the Followers of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (‘His Noodleness’), known as the Pastafarians, you should check them out. Here’s the latest on the Pastafarians and a miracle sandwich touched by His noodley appendage sold on Ebay for $41.00.

The promotion of the religion was originally done in a letter to fight the Kansas School Board’s teaching of intelligent design in classrooms (first link), and it actually has a connection to today’s significance — the author shows a clear correlation between the global average temperature Vs. the number of pirates, clear testimony to the power of His Noodleness. (Yes, it’s a stretch, but I’ve been wanting to post a link to this thing for a while on here for the pure entertainment.)

Verily, I have been touched by his noodly appendage. I love FSM! Such a scathing parody, and so much fun. I may have to get a T-shirt.

In other news, I’m doing my part to fight global warming– this weekend I’ll be going to a renaissance/pirate festival, and increasing the world supply of grown men who say “Arr, matey”. Hehe.
