Profanity and blasphemies?

Postby BunsenH on Sat Oct 06, 2012 2:26 pm

I've been wondering: what are the Pastafarian oaths / profanities / blasphemies? I mean, not every day is all beer and strippers and "Yarrr, maties, doubloons for everyone!" What about when things are going really badly? "Aw, meatballs! Where did that saucin' thing come from?" Something like that?

I find secular swearing does the trick fine :idiot:

More to the point, if you're going to blaspheme surely your should be blaspheming against other religions? That way you get the blasphemy without offending the Noodly One.

I quite often swear by Richard Dawkins' left testicle, or else by the beard of Germaine Greer. If you like Douglas Adams, 'Zarking Fardwarks' is always a good one.

'Dingoes kidneys' and 'Belgium, man, Belgium!' are also quite good, if you're going for Douglas Adams.

A U.S. neopagan magazine once covered the 'fake swears' of new religions [with the 'Oh my Goddess' type being the most egregious of the lot, imho]. One of the contributors enjoyed saying, "Satan take my bicycle!" Another stuck with the tried-and-true classics, pointing out that if you're going to take the name of a deity in vain, why not stick to one you already really don't have any respect for, fer crisssakes?

But that's not the usual pattern with other religions — people swear at/by their own deities. Or at least that's how the various Christian sects have usually done it, through many centuries. There's the Elizabethan cursing with their God's body parts: "[God]'s blood!", "[God]'s wounds!". More recently, "[God] damn it!", "Jesus H. Christ!", and so on; for Quebecois French Catholics, there are the church-based "tabernacle!" and "calice!", etc .

All this is true, Bunsen, but we are not your average religion. We have far too much respect and love for our Deity to swear by the bugger. :haha:

Besides it's bloody dangerous...I cried out in despair the other day: "Oh FSM take me!" and got a noodly appendage right up the poop deck!
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

The noodly appendages will touch you where they will...but please don't make any comparisons with the late Jimmy Saville.

'pee po belly bum drawers' is definitely going on my list for the next time I hit my thumb with a hammer.
