Purdue Pastafarians make the local tv news!

I just got home from a full day of pirate preaching and dinner, so I longer post will be coming later...but The Society of Non-Theists made the local news!


I'm so excited! And they didn't show me saying anything dumb! One minor quibble - they said my last name wrong. It's pronounced Mc-Crite. Sadness. Oh well, I'm used to it.

  1. Also, apparently we're against "thesis"s ;P

  2. Aah, so that’s what you sound like, lass …

    Hey, you made the news! A few more interviews and you’ll be PZ-level celebrity status! =P

    (Go Non-Theists!)

  6. Compared to some of the blunders I've seen occur in local journalism, you got off easy :P

    That said, I find it hilarious that the woman had no idea how to pronounce "non-theists". The society of non-thesis? Sounds like a pretty wishy-washy group to me...

  7. Haha. Looked like it was pretty nice, all told. Didn't appear to be scorching the skin of of you at all either.

    That's pretty awesome, though. First local TV, then THE WORLD!

    I'd laugh like a villain, but this isn't my plan, so I'll leave it to you.

  9. This is a win for atheists! There's still more stories to be posted so we are in good shape so far!

  12. Non-thesists. Hm... Does that mean you're against term papers? That may just get your enrollment up!

  13. Careful Jen...someone has a crush on you....

  14. Huh, I would have known how to pronounce it. I should be in charge of interviewing all atheists for all news everywhere.

    Despite being barely photogenic and, I'm sure, rather poor at the job.

    Also, great costume. Better than the one I cobbled together.

  15. Let us now applaud Jen’s inclusion amongst the wicked and the damned: T.Estes’ Wall of Shame

    [I feel like I’m nearing spam-level comment numbers now. Aie.]

  16. I figured it was time to let you out of the dog house, but please, no posts that imply I'm some kind of psycho stalker, please. It would also be appreciated if you discourage that type of talk from those who comment. I know you're not going to censor, but it would be nice if you would at least respond if someone acts like I'm a pedophile.

  17. Well, I appreciate it. And feel free to comment over there if you want.

    Good day to you.

  18. Congrats, Jen! What great publicity!

  19. That's great! The local news is a free advertisement for your group. I'm wondering how much it contributes to the increase memberships.

  20. Most importantly: the hat is awesome.

  21. Yes. We are against theses of any kind! Having a point is grounds for banishment.

  22. Awesome job!
    Although you're used to it, it sounds like you're not at ease with the certain lack of attention to detail that has become representative of the Journalism industry...
    I think that's GREAT!

    Don't worry, I'm sure she'd stop someone from saying you're a pedophile, or rather, I know someone she has stopped already :3

  24. you people should be ashamed of yourselves - such behaviour trivialises pastafarianism and is deeply hurtful to those of us who keep the faith. such egregious blasphemy must not be tolerated and your sacrilege will be punished in the next world. once we've burnt you at the stake that is.

  25. I just realised that I not only am a non-theist, I am actually a non-thesist, too.

    Does that mean I win?

  26. I definitely should do this at Auraria Campus! ^_^
