Knitted Tree-Topper

Published December 21st, 2010 by Bobby Henderson


My knitting needles, straight and true like spaghetti right out of the box, seemed possessed by His Noodly Goodness.  And now, he adorns our holiday tree as the tree-topper.  It is true that the rest of the tree is now bare — but we expect the Three Wise Pirates, together with some small Edams, Cheddars, and Swisses (the Little Baby Cheeses) to further adorn the tree before Sostice-tide.

I would love to know who is the owner of this beautiful display. Well done. Decorator, please let me know who you are so you can get some credit on your handiwork.

Some more Holiday photos

Published December 14th, 2010 by Bobby Henderson

I am getting behind with the Holiday photos so I thought I would post several submissions here in one post. Behold:


I think I sent you a photo of my FSM tree-topper when I first made it a couple of years ago. But this year I added the meatball ornaments to complete the package, so I figured I’d send you an updated photo.

(Just below the FSM is the new James Randi Educational Foundation "Season of Reason" ornament, of which His Noodliness would certainly approve…)

Thanks for all your time and effort, and Merry Chrifsmas…




My wife spent the afternoon making and decorating holiday cookies with the kids.  This year, amongst the dozens of cookies she made, I found this gem that she had hidden for me.

Even though we are essentially devoid of artsy craftsy skills, my wife and I managed to make this glowing FSM Tree Topper with basic supplies and an old star tree topper!  
I think he came out great!  


Mark and Antoinette

Please keep sending me your photos, these decorations look fantastic. Sorry if you’ve sent me photos and I haven’t posted them yet (I know for certain there are some great ones).  I am behind in everything.

Pretty FSMas Lights

Published December 13th, 2010 by Bobby Henderson


I hope my FSMas lights are a sufficient praise enough.


I think you did an great job and passers-by and the FSM Himself will be happy with your works.  Well done, sir. 

Any other FSMas light displays out there? Please send me your photos, we would all love to see them.

Nativity showdown

Published December 12th, 2010 by Bobby Henderson


There’s some drama over a Christian Nativity scene displayed on the lawn of a county courthouse in Indiana.  The Freedom From Religion Foundation demanded the removal of the display on first amendment violation concerns and now locals are fighting.  It’s the same fight every Christmas and I get tired of writing about it.  

Now for the shock:

These Christmas fights bug me, honestly.   I am a supporter of the FFRF and of some of these secular and atheist organizations, but sometimes I am shaking my head and wondering what they are thinking.  You might get this scene removed but you do so much damage to our cause in the process.  You don’t think these perceptions matter?  Then what is this all about?  These Christmas fights make us look like such assholes, that’s all I’m saying. They are not reciting prayers in a state building or anything on that level.  A Nativity scene is barely religious, it’s like a cross necklace.   End of rant.

What do you guys think?

Historically accurate nativity scene?

Published December 10th, 2010 by Bobby Henderson


I can’t take credit for this photo…but it’s a "must see!"


I am curious, who is the historian behind this scene? Shall we add this to the Holiday e-Card machine? I would like to get the permission of the artist of course, but I have always felt that blasphemy, like happiness, is enjoyed best when shared.

*Update* Word is that this is the work of Orngarth originally posted on reddit. I have added it to the to Holiday e-Card propaganda machine provisionally, so if you would like to send this to your friends/family/coworkers email in the form of a festive greeting there is a way to do it.


FSM Theme Park

Published December 9th, 2010 by Bobby Henderson


Open call for submissions!

How about it? Let’s brainstorm and see if we can’t come up with some fantastic attractions and artwork.  I will be shocked if we can’t outdo the Ark Encounter.  Here are some themes to work with but don’t let this limit you:

* Pirates

* Beer Volcano

* Midgets  (I’m making that hand waving gesture because it’s a touchy subject (I think (or is that a touchy subject to mention it))

* The mystery of the Pirate Fish (specifically why has its origin never been explained?)

* The Creation Mountains

What am I missing?

Purchase the Gospel

An elaborate spoof on Intelligent Design, The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is neither too elaborate nor too spoofy to succeed in nailing the fallacies of ID. It's even wackier than Jonathan Swift's suggestion that the Irish eat their children as a way to keep them from being a burden, and it may offend just as many people, but Henderson puts satire to the same serious use that Swift did. Oh, yes, it is very funny. -- Scientific American.
