Help! Help! I'm being repressed!

Ok this is entirely too good to just ignore. I read it first on Wil Wheaton's blog, then over at Dvorak Uncensored and now I bring it to you.

A student has been suspended for doing nothing more than acting in accordance with his religious beliefs.

“Bryan Killian says that he follows the Pastafarian religion, and that as a crucial part of his faith, he must wear 'full pirate regalia' as prescribed in the holy texts of Pastafarianism.“

You know it would be easy to take the cheap road and make jokes at the poor lads expense, it would even be easy to make fun of the fine religion of Pastafarianism but I would never do anything like that. I have a healthy fear of The Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Just before posting this I also noticed that the article made it to Digg. Not surprising at all, but still worth mentioning.

For further reading you can also check out The Flying Spaghetti Monster's Wikipedia entry.

And yet for some reason people keep telling me that I'm odd....Hmmm....."flying pasta monsters" Interesting..I wonder if it stems from seeing his family throw spaghetti noodles up against the cabinet to see if they stick. (Old cooks trick to tell if they are done)....*stifles laughter* Ahem..be mature now....*smacks hand*

Please please do not anger the Flying Spaghetti Monster.. I don't want to be on the business end of his wrath.

You know what is a good game though? Get Spaghetti in a restaurant and lob a piece at the wall...just to check. The staff loves that.
