Then They Came for the Pastafarians…

In Russia, they have finally come for the Pastafarians.

Original caption in St. Petersburg (Russia) Times: “According to their website, Pastafarians wear sieves on their heads, worship The Flying Spaghetti Monster and believe that their religion was founded by pirates.”

Seems that some Pastafarians neglected to get a parade permit before parading in Moscow over the weekend, and were ordered to walk the plank as a result.

As if pirates believe in “permits.” Pfffft! Now, if the Moscow officials would call their parade permits “letters of marque,” they’d be speaking words our Russian counterparts could understand.

Language barriers. Pirates didn’t “found” the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Apparently the Russian researchers on this piece fail to understand the difference between correlation and causation, just like the Kansas Board of Education.
