Intelligently designed bumper sticker

I realize that it's not listed specifically in the South Beach Diet but if you'd been faithfully reading Peek you'd have read about the Flying Spaghetti Monster nearly two months ago...

But we all deserve forgiveness. So briefly, the Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) is the creature who, in the opinion of Kansas resident Bobby Henderson:

"created all that we see and all that we feel. We feel strongly that the overwhelming scientific evidence pointing towards evolutionary processes is nothing but a coincidence, put in place by Him." Carbon dating? Bah: "what our scientist does not realize is that every time he makes a measurement, the Flying Spaghetti Monster is there changing the results with His Noodly Appendage."
Well, the FSM, whose religion is now known as Pastafarianism, has acquired the one thing that any upstart religion needs to get rolling with the big boys: a bumper sticker. See upper left for image and go here to make your own. Say it loud and make your voice heard: It was the Flying Spaghetti Monster what did it. (Boing Boing)
