The Flying Spaghetti Monster made me do it!

After much careful consideration, I have decided to change careers. I’m tired of slaving away at a job that involves limited outlet for my creative urges. I want to do something fresh, something new, something that will tap into the hot, swirling fire that burns in the pit of my soul. Plus, I want to make like a huge wad of cash and stuff.

So, I have decided to finally become a writer.

In looking around at the available opportunities, I thought, “Hey! Why not jump on the band wagon of some hip, happenin’ trend?” And what could be hipper or more happenin’ than Intelligent Design!

Here is a sneak peek at the thought-provoking poetry for what I hope to be a long line of Intelligent Design greeting cards. I created this one for a certain birthday girl

Happy birthday to you
You live in a zoo
You act like a monkey
But that’s no reason to infer that you evolved from one

My Lord, that was a long way to go for such a lame joke. I’m awfully sorry for anyone who read that whole thing expecting something funny. If anyone wants their money back, I completely understand.

    Oh hell, that joke was worth the wait, even at twice the price!

    All Hail the FSM!

    BTW, I saw a bumper sticker (or bumpah stickah as they’re called back here at home) that made me smile, even being the heathen that I am.

    “God is too big for any one religion”

    Testify, brothers and sisters. Testify.

    Ra-men, brother.

    Thanks for the b-day poetry… I think. 😉

    i didn’t mind the long reading/lame joke ratio. i’m just glad you chose to abandon your steady, cushy desk job in favor of a career worth *living* for!

    I must say that you do seem to have a natural talent for ID greeting cards there, Sol. When you make your first million try not to forget about us little people, eh? Or, go ahead and forget about me after you send me some spare cash.

    Nah. I’ll go a long way for a chuckle (even a lame one).

    now see, maybe we could start up a greeting card line of our own, ’cause last year i penned this personal favorite

    Happy Birthday
    to a hell fo a dad,
    when you weren’t stinking drunk
    you weren’t half bad.

    Then again, i don’t know if your cards and my cards would go so well together.
