Congratulations to Master Chief Petty Officer Bob (who doesn’t need a last name), who recently retired after 29 years of service in both the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard.
To celebrate, he donned the official Pastafarian hat:
The guys I work with know that I am an ordained minister in the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. For our holiday party, for example, I ensured that His Noodly Goodness was properly represented, as well as the Festivus pole and other more mainstream (mundane) religious symbols.
I love seeing someone with a serious job show off his sense of humor. And kudos to his colleagues for seeing the humor in all this instead of getting offended.
