Blasphemy! you are well on the way to causing a schism with the Bradford (First Bus is the Chosen Transport for our Noodly Master - He Renders Leaflets Redundant) Chapter.


I recant unreservedly; just jealous that His Noodlyness has yet to reveal him/herself to me in iconic form on the buses, on toast, as condensation in double glazing, or in any other of the traditional forms of divine revelation.

Welcome Tree Captain, what did they say about us on Green Wing?

aha. well, even if you don't know the character names, i'm leaving them in.

Guy and Martin were having an argument at lunch, so Guy put a load of spaghetti on Martin's head (there was a resemblence to a certain divine being) and then said "now you're a pastafarian".

and thus, i was converted. :worship: :fsm:

you can find the clip on youtube, but it cuts out before he calls him a pastafarian. foolish, foolish youtube.

btw thanks for the welcome, it's nice to be here.

What is it about Green Wing? It has me giggling helplessly and insanely to the point where I think the neigbours will call an ambulance.

Blimey. I watched that and was giggling so hard I failed to spot the reference. Further proof that His Noodly Self can be invisible EVEN whilst plain to see! magic!

Hey, Goat Starer, you have graduated, you aren't a new convert. You don't need to introduce yourself any more. Especially now you've seen the Green Wing episode :fsm_float: :mrgreen:

I am a new convert to FSM, and have already purchased a pirate costume to appease His noodly wrath. I am planning to wear it for my next university lecture.

Welcome JackMcMac,

That's a great idea, though you may want to discuss it with the university senate first if you are a lecturer rather than a student.

Hello everyone. After hearing the blurb on CNN, and coming across a Pastafarian on the Pure Pwnage forums, I was led to here. I have read through the site, and loved all that I heard. So here I am.

Welcome Latentk. You've actually read through ALL the pages of the Last Post?!?!! You are most truly worthy of praise.

I recently was convinced to follow the doctrine of intelligent design, and after researching my options discovered that pastafarianism must be the true path. It was at dinner one night when I discovered that he had left his mark on the plate in front of me, and then I realized that his noodly appendage must be present in all things. :fsm_rock:

Also, I'm in Ft. Collins CO, and if there's anyone else here that would be interested in doing some FSM missionary work, please contact me through PM or otherwise.
