More from Malicious Dick’s Jesus in the Wal-Mart receipt series. I like The Dude, personally.


His explanation of why he decided to play around with this is quite enlightening. Don’t let the radio handle fool you - he’s a vegetarian, very progressive, and a Buddhist. He’ll be moving to Seattle shortly, and I’ll miss him here in Wyoming.

Thanks for the giggles, my friend!

Student punished for spaghetti beliefs

A student has been suspended from school in America for coming to class dressed as a pirate.

But the disciplinary action has provoked controversy – because the student says that the ban violates his rights, as the pirate costume is part of his religion.

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.

This is a motherfucking injustice. May the name of the FSM be praised. R’amen

Shawn the Baptist visits the University of Wyoming

(All photos by Zachary Spadt of Laramie)

This was the scene on campus today after the preacher "Shawn The Baptist" showed up with his group. This guy began yelling that homosexuals and sodomites were going to be burning in hell. Women must be pure or be whores. When he asked if I “knew Jesus,” I said we had met and I was raised Catholic. He called me a “papist’s whore.”

He’s here every semester. After all the bullying I’ve read about in the name of what God supposedly thinks, I decided not to ignore him like I’ve done for 3 years.

I printed Flying Spaghetti Monster brochures and called my friend Mara. We stood outside at noon. By 12:30, Charlie Wheeler of the Secular Student Alliance was preaching the word of being touched by His Noodly Appendage with AJ Lamb, Mara and I, plus a decent crowd, as backup. When I went to class at 1 p.m., Charlie, AJ and Mara kept the crowd fired up.

Then, K Michael Richards showed up and shit got surreal.
