Please abandon all efforts of improvement just because it hurts your feelings and you want to prove how valuable you are. The only other option is to allow someone else to the job that you despise so much.

For the purpose of domestic tranquility just abandon all efforts of improvement. That's the more peaceful approach.

Let us pray. :fsm_float:

Our Pasta, who "Arghh" in the colander, Swallowed be thy sauce. Thy serving come, Thy food be yum, On forks as they are on spoons. Give us this day our daily sauce, And forgive us our messes, As we forgive those who mess against us. And lead us not into hell, But deliver us some pizza, For thine is the noodles, and the sauce and the meatballs, forever and ever.

R'Amen

We call Him a He because that's how He refers to Himself, but the FSM has aspects of masculine and feminine, and monsters don't really have gender anyway.

But tentacles that coat you in sauce are kinda masculine, and tender succulent meaty orbs that provide sustenance are kinda feminine.


Anyway, welcome!

Actually, we have weekends off because of Unions. They happen to contain Sunday because of Christianity. They also contain Saturday because if Judaism, I think. Claiming any moral high ground based on His Noodiliness is gonna be tough, particularly considering the mandate towards loose morals.

We may not have the highest morals, but they sure do cover a large total area.

Especially if you slice us really thinly. Or put us in a big blender first.

I'm not sure which is the most efficient method, like you were screeding a concrete floor, or like you were spreading muck on a farmer's field.

Either way, I think you could get quite impressive coverage with Pastafarians, compared to Muslims, Jews or Scientologists.
