Touched by His Noodly Appendage

My sister Laura is a scholar of religion, finishing up her Ph.D. in religious studies. Last week she attended her professional society's meetings, where she had many interviews but managed to find time to attend a session on the religious implications of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, a parody religion born out of frustration with "Intelligent Design" advocates. Her account of the session was very interesting, and I encourage you to read it.

Byron agreed to talk to his Grandma Pat on the phone last night, and immediately blurted out: "Have you been touched by his noodly appendage?" Which, of course, she totally didn't understand.

We were falling over laughing, but I wished he would have agreed to say it to you instead!
