Russian Pastafarians sprayed with Ketchup, detained by Riot Police

Ein paar Pastafarier wollten in Moskau den Geburtstag von Robert De Niro feiern, weil der in Sergio Leones Once Upon a Time in America einen Charakter namens Noodle gespielt hatte. Deshalb haben orthodoxe Aktivisten, die normalerweise Schwulenhetze betreiben und gegen Pussy Riot demonstrieren, die Nudelanbeter mit Ketchup bespritzt und sie wurden schließlich von der Polizei abgeführt. I kid you not.

Followers of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster planned to hold a “pasta procession” in Moscow and St. Petersburg to honor the birthday of Robert De Niro, who once played a character named Noodle in the movie Once Upon A Time in America.

The “pasta procession” in Moscow was disrupted by the Orthodox activist group Bozhaya Volya, or God’s Will, who sprayed ketchup on a march participants. The Orthodox group has held demonstrations against homosexuality, the punk rock group Pussy Riot, and the Darwin natural history museum. Moscow police dispersed the marchers, claiming the procession was not sanctioned by authorities.

“We were detained for simply walking,” one Pastafarian wrote on a social networking website. “In particular, I was taken in for a sieve on my head.”
