Spaghetti Desecration, Anyone?

According to Pharyngula, YouTube has begun removing videos of consecrated eucharist desecrations (as a side note, my eucharist is still in my basement growing stale… Jesus is very hard).

But we all know that just because Catholics like censorship doesn’t mean that all religious people are hateful. Take the Pastafarians, for example. Sure they post pictures of apparitions of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, but they aren’t hateful of those who don’t follow their religion. As was said in the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, if you don’t believe in the FSM you still go to Heaven, you just might not be allowed into some of the better parts.

And while the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster did include a scientific study showing the superiority of the Pastafarian communion spaghetti to the Catholic communion wafer, we have yet to see any Pastafarian send death threats to people who don’t eat their spaghetti.

But, we may still assume that since spaghetti is in direct emulation of the body of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, the Flying Spaghetti Monster may still be harmed if held captive and desecrated.

So here’s the question: Would YouTube remove videos of a desecration of spaghetti if they’re not getting angry e-mails from the Pastafarians, knowing full well that the desecration of spaghetti could be harming the Flying Spaghetti Monster?

Before I make official the “Pasta Desecration Challenge” perhaps somebody should e-mail YouTube to make sure we won’t be breaking their rule of bending to other people’s dogma.

  1. But I don’t want to desecrate any spaghetti! From what I hear, those communion wafers are pretty tasteless, but spaghetti is delicious, and I’d rather do what His Noodliness wants and eat it.

    Nice one 😉

    Surely one desecrates spaghetti by twirling it on the fork anti-clockwise before consumption: as any true Pastafarian knows, His Noodliness sanctifies only clockwise twirling. Ramen.

    😉

    Forgive me, Your Noodliness, for I have sinned. I have twirledeth Your Holy Pasta counter-clockwise. I beg Your Forgiveness in this matter.
    Ramen

  4. I always thought there was nothing more horrible to do to something than to crush it mercilessly, bathe it in acid, and then palpate it down a long tube sucking out nutrients before dropping it in a toilet…

    good thing no one does that to any holy foods, right?

    How about making tofu or seitan “mock meatballs” and serving those w/ spaghetti? Would that count as desecrating the Holy Noodle?

    So, who has some ramen noodles, a camcorder, a Youtube account, and a lot of spare time?
