Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster

Unlike My Drunk Kitchen, the Flying Spaghetti Monster is fairly widespread. This is a religion known as Pastafarianism. With thousands of followers, countless websites, and actual hate mail, they are just as legitimate as all other religions (Scientology, anyone?). Any person capable of a good laugh should check the site (by clicking the image) to see more stuff about it. As a little teaser, here's some stuff about what they believe.

"To outsiders it makes us hard to define, but here are some general things that can be said about our beliefs: 
  • We believe pirates, the original Pastafarians, were peaceful explorers and it was due to Christian misinformation that they have an image of outcast criminals today
  • We are fond of beer
  • Every Friday is a Religious Holiday
  • We do not take ourselves too seriously 
  • We embrace contradictions (though in that we are hardly unique)"
Sounds pretty awesome to me. People decorate their house for the religion, wear costumes, you can even become a legit 'Pastafarian minister'. There's also their own book out called "The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster." If only they celebrated Festivus too. Look 'em up!
