Tomorrow, the independent minor league baseball team the St. Paul Saints will undergo a kind of religious conversion. For one night, they'll become the Mr. Paul Aints. They're dropping the Saint and an S, creating a secularized version of their name for a game that's sponsored by the Minnesota Atheists.

Sounds cool.  I guess there is no prayer before the game. lol
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

Awesome!  ;D
If we ever travel thousands of light years to a planet inhabited by intelligent life, let's just make patterns in their crops and leave.

Are they selling spaghetti and tea instead of hot dogs and beer?

People see Jesus in a plate full of spaghetti:

A Sign: It's Jesus, or a Lunch Bargain

A lot has happened here since Joyce Simpson saw the face of Jesus in the forkful of spaghetti on the Pizza Hut billboard near Coleman Watley's Jiffy-Lube.

I love how she saw the "Michelangelo" version of jeezus on a Pizza Hut sign.  That might have been a clue to her she literally SPAGed jeezus... but no, it was the holy spirits - 90 proof.

I still say any pasta manifestations are actually the work of the Flying Spag Monster and await my side of tea (steaming hot from Russell's teapot)
