Today I learned the pastafarians are really, really materialistic about religion. Like, they chide people for thinking mainstream religions are more legitimate than praying 5 times a day facing reddit, but at the same time their way of "legitimizing" their "religion" is incredibly superficial. They wear colanders on their head as religious headgear...except only for special occasions or at the dmv because this thing is really uncomforta-I mean uh sacred and for special occasions. They wrote a bible, explicitly so none of them could ever read it except in a weird telephone game way where one of them reads it and the rest of them quote him forever. They talk about how much they hated being indoctrinated as children, but as soon as they have their own cursed spawn, they're jumping at the chance to name them Fusilli or some shit. This episode turned my brain into red sauce.

it's hard to imagine a worse forum than an entire community of people who didn't get the joke

I really appreciate the ghost of Adam Bozarth presiding over the whole thing!

Also, regarding the conversation at the end, I know I've read a couple stories talking about how things like Gamergate or the Alt Right grew out of early 2000s online atheism and/or South park ideology. I can imagine a lot of online people trading their colanders for MAGA hats.

i find myself wondering where the line was for people who thought of it as a joke and got out. like how serious was too serious for them? because i would like to hope some of them were self-aware enough to know they shouldn't keep acting like this

I can pretty easily see how the logic of “wearing a colander on my head will make people finally realize how bad Christians are” eventually morphed into “wearing a diaper in public will make people finally see how bad leftist college students are.”

yesterday while at the store with my roommate i saw a car with a whole bunch of awful bumper stickers (one that just says "poop", one that's pedobear peeking up from the passenger window, a faded "i <3 equality"...) and the real capper, as we drove away from it, was a jesus fish style FSM emblem.

i died and my ghost is posting now
