I find it admirable that someone has FINALLY figured out how to make money using this religion. HOWEVER:

1. FUCK that. Not F*ck that. Why would anyone say fuck and then censor it?
2. Where's my money? As a Super Official Church Official, I want a cut. A least throw some cash Faust's way to help keep the dream alive. This is the absolute center for Discordian Culture after all.
ABSOLUTE CENTER!
3. You may have heard of these folks, Scientologists. They make mad money in the religion racket, they must be doing something right. Be more like them.

I would offer my time to do so, but I quit the FB to pursue cleaner living.

ETA: Actually I have more.

Pink Nightmare Squad. WTF?

So, you're using a symbol to empower women by giving bad men something to fear. Presumably people wearing PNS products are going to punish these kind of men. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm all for justifiable vigilante justice. What I don't understand is how you are going to implement that kind of violence effectively, while selling MOICHENDIZING, without getting caught. Won't they link that violence to...say the people broadcasting their criminal intent on the internets to sell MOICHENDIZING?

I'll just leave the whole Capitalizing On Abuse Victims With Cutsy Crap thing alone because, well

If sheep entrails could in any way be related to the weather, i.e. sheep trails only originate where it rains, then you could use it as an accurate model for discerning what the weathers going to be like. Either, sheep shit makes it rain, or raining makes sheep shit. Sheep don't shit "randomly" sheep shit after they eat, it doesn't rain "randomly" it rains after water collects in the atmosphere.

Alty, I read that as Pink Nightmare Squid.  Which, if you think about it, is much, much better.

Discordian as a brand name. 

I CALLED IT!  DIDN'T I CALL IT?

You know I did.

Shit yeah.  Prophecy powers still chugging along.

Although it occurs to me that expecting Discordians to make a deadline is one HELL of a business model.  Remember what happened to Ben Mack, relentless promoter of "Discordianism" and leech upon the festering corpses of RAW and Thornley.  Ugliness, sheer ugliness, and I wince and cringe at the memory. 

TGRR,
Hopes he comes along to "steward his reputation" some more.

Hell yes.

We need to trademark EVERYTHING.  Then we can enjoy the attentions of the same kooks that follow Stang around.

I loved it when he realized that we were the only people talking about him, and we were talking shit about him a lot and totally fucking with his Google tracking.

Yeah, that was one of PD's finer moments.   :lulz:

In any case, I'd be interested in what terms and conditions Gav is proposing.  Sheerly out of curiosity, of course.  If I was going to sell anything, I'd ask Nigel if she had room on her website first.
