But - but - Pastafarians aren't the same as Rastafarians - are they!?

For example, this is a pastafarian:

I doubt any Rastafarians would wear such, uh, useful headwear!

Rastafarians don't need hats, they have dreadlocks.

People do self-stereotype ... but that doesn't make them religious.  A human who is "life" non-practicing .. is called a corpse.  A non-practicing American isn't American, they are English or something else.  Yes, and all Irish are Catholic pedophiles and drunks too.  Many people also think they are X, when they aren't that.  Delusion is what that is usually called.  A non-practicing American, who thinks they are American ... I would call delusional.

Sometimes your responses prod me to inquire as to the medications you take. But I get over the urge rather quickly.

Good, but if the urges continue ... I suggest a wee dram o' Scotch ;-)

I'm not a Jew, but I'm circumcised, so I could convert with less pain than others...

Not that it matters. I'd sooner become a Pastafarian than pretend belief in an Abrahamic deity. They don't circumcise, do they?

Why would care?  Can it happen twice?  OUCH!

It did when the Falasha came to Israel.  First the official rabbis circumcised them.  Then the ultra orthodox, who don't recognize the other rabbis, came and offered to do it a second time (this may be anecdotal, but still funny).  Regular Black Africans, circumcise males when they are 12, with a dull knife.  Australian Aborigines are more fun, they put a permanent second hold in the side of your dick.
