The opinions of a cultural delinquent who listens, watches, and reads what he wants, when he wants, popularity be damned! I will share what I think is the most interesting music, film, TV, books, magazines, web sites, technology, and food out there.

You gotta love the way that the Web works, especially the joy that is Wikipedia.
This afternoon at lunch I was doing my usual reading of comics online and The Comics Curmudgeon, when I read this post from Sunday. In the discussion of the Curtis comic, a link to Omphalos theory was provided. I had to follow it, since I had never heard of it, and felt... well.... stupid.
Turns out it is a pretty heavy duty theology theory that can be basically boiled down to the question of "did Adam and Eve have belly buttons or not?" What really caught my eye was in the "See Also" section of the article however, which provided a link to an article on the Flying Spaghetti Monster, which turns out to not be a reject from Aqua Teen Hunger Force, but a brilliant and hilarious religious parody.
However, I am clearly a little late to the game (though probably still ahead of most people), since there is already a Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and, of course its own web site.
