ICME: FSM as car art

fsm.jpg

I went for a short walk, spotted this and had to grab a pic with the trusty phone cam.  The FSM as car art, he has arrived.  As a devout Pastafarian it warms my heart to know the Flying Spaghetti Monster and his noodly appendages has guided a convert to his church pasta bowl.  

Ramen and pass the parm its time to rejoice.

  1. I used to have one of those little guys on my car. And even though I love the FSM to death, I removed it when I realized how much I hated seeing Jesus fish and Scientology appliques. To further play devil’s advocate, there was a recent article about Jesus fish, Darwin fish, and religious intolerance, that ran in the LA Times and other Tribune papers: http://tinyurl.com/6nws9e I don’t agree with it entirely, but it’s an interesting perspective.

  2. The link is interesting. Jonas Goldberg as a book out “liberal fascist” which an interesting read.

    I think the whole fsm thing is a nice counterpoint to all those fish people or whatever group that runs about feeling superior about themselves based on some sort of ideology. If it wouldn’t screw up my paint I’d consider one.

  3. Okay, I looked up “Liberal Fascism” and now I’m scared. The last thing I want to do on here is promote the writing of a right wing nutjob. I wish I could crank up the old flux capacitor and pretend I never passed along that article. Or supported Nader in 2000 for that matter.

  4. Yes, it is one thing to read a whack job so you understand where the far right is coming from. It is something entirely different to quote it in support of an argument.

  5. I agree with @frazgo. I first heard of the Flying Spaghetti Monster during the Kansas State Board of Education hearings and I thought a bit of levity was appropriate to illustrate the absurdity of it all.

    These things are available at the venerable Y-Que Trading Post on Vermont for only a few dollars.

    If my paint’s going to be screwed up, it’ll be screwed up by the LA smog anyway. There’s only a patch of double-sided tape on the back anyway (you know, the spongy type).

  6. Frazgo: To make up for my Judas-like betrayal, and my sins against FSM, would you allow me to pick you one up from Y-Que? I live in Los Feliz and go there all the time. I bought mine there and can attest they don’t ruin the paint when they come off. It’s the least I can do.

  7. Hmm…y-que? I need to check that place out as am surrounded by traditional gift and religous gift stores in my corner of LA. Maybe my next meander into that part of town I’ll check it out.
