I Wonder if They Smoke the Stuff?

In the "no issue too serious to make fun of" category we have Flying Spaghetti Monsterism:

Flying Spaghetti Monsterism is a parody religion created to protest the decision by the Kansas State Board of Education to allow intelligent design to be taught in science classes alongside evolution.

The "religion" has since become an Internet phenomenon garnering many followers of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (sometimes referring to themselves as "Pastafarians", a pun on Rastafarians) who claim to have been touched by "His Noodly Appendage" and preach the word of their "noodly master" as the one true religion. Flying Spaghetti Monsterism is primarily the invention of Bobby Henderson, a graduate of Oregon State University with a degree in physics.

The more you know...

I think it's great. Any chance to poke fun at silliness is plain amusing to me. Especially the decline in pirates vs. global warming. I might have to get a t-shirt with that on it.
