Do you have a few minutes?

I would like to tell you about the Flying Spaghetti Monster, FBUH.

So far, no outrages have been committed in the name of Pastafarianism, but then it is very young religion, and one that probably is not that attractive to the average heavily-armed fanatic.

Gertrude, you need to read up a bit on American history. Originally, it was "all men [meaning only white males, no blacks and no women, and if poofters have been invented yet, no, none of them neither] are created equal ... " Lincoln, in a bold act of political genius, took this one literally as "all men" and ran with it when he crafted the Emancipation Proclamation, and later women were also included by being given the vote.

You are very perceptive, for a marsupial, Gertrude, so that you have spotted that the USA is imperfect! We had been getting away with that, but now you have ripped the veil clean off! Drat!
