UnNews:Pastafarians see "the face of the Flying Spaghetti Monster" in a window
23 July 2006
TRENTON, New Jersey: Pastafarians across the globe rejoice and line up to see the face of the Flying Spaghetti Monster as seen in a window reflection. Some even claim to be "cured" by his noodley appendage (i.e. a man claimed his ingrown toenail was healed upon rubbing it against the window).
The image was first spotted Saturday evening, and was at first mistaken for a smudge. But when window washer Carlos Sanchez realized that his Windex was ineffective, he notified his boss. Upon seeing the image, his boss, an outspoken Pastafarian, spread the word and it soon became public knowledge that the Flying Spaghetti Monster had made his first public appearance (similar to when Catholics "see" the face of Jesus or Mary in a window, or in a taco, or on a tire or something).
The window depicts the Flying Spaghetti Monster touching the finger of Adam, similar to that seen in Michelangelo's painting, "The Creation of Adam". Many Pastafarians believe this is to be their religion's holy land. Prophet Bobby Henderson made the following statement:
- "I know what many are thinking: 'New Jersey? Some holy land!' Well, let us have faith. It's not so bad in New Jersey. Atlantic City is pretty cool and they have pretty good hotdogs there."
Others choose to reject the image as a miracle, calling it propaganda instead. Bobby Henderson, again, had this to say to such claims:
- "Propoganda? No, we're not communists."
However, high ranking members of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster have not officially recognized the site as a miracle.
