FSM Apartments

Does the Flying Spaghetti Monster live in my neighborhood? (Click for larger view)

This broadsheet appeared in my mailbox for a nearby highrise. I couldn’t help thinking that Verdure Residence “Foliage” might be a good place for the Flying Spaghetti Monster to live.

The Flying Spaghetti Monster, for those yet uninitiated, is a satire on the “Intelligent Design” theory of creation. His followers, who believe the FSM created the Earth and continues to influence it with His Noodly Appendage, have sent letters to all the boards of education who are advocating teaching intelligent design and have received some responses.

You can read all about FSM and his followers (the Pastafarians) at Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

I can see this building from my window, so will keep an eye open for His Noodliness to come around with the moving van. If you want more information about the FSM Apartments, check out the website (in Japanese) at Joint Corporation

From the Pastafarians, “Our Heaven has a Beer Volcano”. How can one argue with that? I know several institutions of higher learning where something like that is worshipped. Hmmm, is a keg tap really a reflection of Heaven? ;)

Well, Seth, Ben Franklin said “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to prosper.”

The fsm apartments look gorgeous. They remind me of an apartment complex I saw in houston.
