I'm so glad people are still in this, and that it hasn't died out yet.

If anything, the number of Pastafarians is growing. Apparently, we're even converting the spambots!

That makes it sound like i'm the Great Noodly Lord's all-knowing Brilliance.

Which I'm not going to contest. :D

Hello,

This is my first post and I'm excited to share a story with you all about my recent Spaghetti Monster experience.
Can anyone tell me how to submit a post to the "general news" page that is displayed on the homepage of Venganza.org (not the discussion board.) I've got a pic to go with it and I think it would make a great general news post.

Thanks.

May Spaghetti be with you.
RAmen.

The people in charge here and the people in charge there are very different, so we don't really have a way of doing that. But, since I think Bobby is the only one who updates those news posts, you should probably just email him at [email protected].

Also, Welcome Caylen and Bones.

Nice neighborhood! I'm a recent convert and have been so busy reading all the hilarity I haven't taken the time to post. I spend way too much time here.

I have been spreading the word. My friends say I am strange, so I feel very happy here.

Ramen to you all!

Hello. Don't feed the toddler or the parrot, feel free to post rubbish all over the Games section, blah blah.

Oh, could you please use paragraphs to break up your posts? I tend to automatically switch off when I have to read a big block of text. Fank ye, ye welkum

Welcome aboard, Schaneman and Niamert. Are you the 123rd Niamert? I haven't run into any of the others. If you're really nice to daftbeaker, he might let you have a banana to stick in your ear.

Yours!
Ubi Dubius.

Arrrr...

Tis true, I don't hurt a bit. Life on a pirate ship gets lonely, getting in touch with your 'gentler' 'softer side' is perfectly natural. Aye, Santa and I have a few issues regarding
non-delivery of childhood presents. So if you see him, tell him I'm sending the boys around.
