Calling for community support: Pastafarian only swimming

By Diggety - 13 February 2012 37

After learning of swimming lane segregation based on gender, Pastafarian leader, The Flying Spaghetti Monster(FSM) is calling on the ACT for support to provide an option for Pastafarian’s only swimming in the ACT.

“A number of noodly knights have contacted me raising the case for Church of The Flying Spaghetti Monster only swimming in the ACT,” said Lord FSM (in pirate language).

“Providing Pastafarian’s only swimming would increase the availability of swimming to a number of followers and benevolent pirates in our community, both for safety, and for fun.

“Some followers and families currently do not use our public pools due to religious reasons, accessibility concerns, or for body image reasons.”

Flying Spaghetti Monster followers require pasta sauce as a liquid medium for aquatic locomotion. Consensus  suggests ‘marinara’ the most fitting flavour.

Are there any FSM followers, or sympathizers to the cause amongst the rioters before we submit the proposal to the Greens?

What’s Your opinion?

Yes, Pastafarians don’t like looking at men in Speedos.

Sounds like a rather good idea. Many o’ us Pastafarian do have body image related issues due t’ our close followin’ o’ church dogma (Beer, strippers and pasta). As such, a dedicated Pastafarian pool would be ideal.

Arrrr.

As a descendent of the line of the dark house, and a follower of the Celtic pantheon, I’ll support the Pastafarians, as long as we get to ritually slaughter our enemies and throw their heads around the pool like a beach ball.

I suspect it would be very difficult to properly chlorinate marinara sauce. I would like to propose boiling water (salt and olive oil optional) as an alternative. Yes, it would hurt, but true Pastafarians would recognise their sufferings as nothing compared to those of His Noodliness, thus bringing them closer to Our Lord FSM.

As a member of the Church of Later in the Day Spaghetti, I support this.

However my beliefs mean that I cannot swim in pasta sauce as a liquid medium for aquatic locomotion unless accompanied by naked nubile female pirates. Can this be accommodated?

I’ll need screens, water wings, grapes, and a quantity of good wine to ensure compliance with the wishes of the eternal FSM, as translated by our founder Joseph “Spag Boll” Smith who was directed by an angel to a buried tract written on golden plates, shame he went and lost them

If this is all good, has anyone got a few naked nubile female pirates I could borrow please?

FSM be praised…All hail His Noodly Appendage!

Indeed, it’s so difficult to keep my religious headwear (the pasta strainer) in place when swimming with all those non-believers.

FSM be praised.

Arrrrr.

As a dedicated Pastafarian, I strongly support this. I feel humiliated and embarrassed when people laugh and point at me when I visit the pool in my pirate costume and eye patch, as all good Pastafarians should do. Providing facilities for us would let me participate in healthy outdoor activities without the fear of leering infidels, particularly on Friday (our Sabbath) and on our Holy of Holies, Talk Like a Pirate Day (on September 19th).

I hope He will touch this project with His Noodley Appendage and I look forward to the full support of the Greens.

Your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

The only segregation in pools I’m interested in is keeping pee out of my lane.
