Pastafarian Lightbulb

Vitralucis pastafarensis ramen von Dylan Kehde Roelofs. (via Laughing Squid)

This curious creature has been found at all stratigraphic levels, often wrapped around Vitralucsis species, as if it had been moving through the solid fossil matrix…I am beginning to suspect it has fooled me into thinking it is a fossil at all, and is the mere husk or cast-off shell of something fantastic. On the left you may see my noodly appendage reaching out to excite the noble gasses left inside the form.
