Flying Spaghetti Monster

One of my very favorite ‘net memes in a very long time, the Flying Spaghetti Monster is, according to wikipedia:

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.

There’s been BoingBoing posts, a cute name for the faux-religion (Pastafarianism), and downloadable graphics suitable for card stickers/chrome fish-like ornaments.

A number of the digerati have put forward a 1 million dollar challenge to the creationists (up from the original $250,000):

We are willing to pay any individual *$250,000 if they can produce empirical evidence which proves that Jesus is not the son of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

This is why I love the Interweb.
