A Religion For The Rest Of Us

I've been looking for my true calling for quite a while. My Catholic baptism didn't really take. Then, I got sent to a Southern Baptist church for some reason when I was a child. In due corse, I found myself surrounded by Quakers for a long, long, quite time. Since, I've tried embracing the ideals of Pastafarianism, and Bokononism, with moderate degrees of success.  Today, however, I may have found my destiny: The Church of the SubGenius.  
I quote now from the Book of SubGenius:
The Church Of The SubGenius is an order of Scoffers and Blasphemers, dedicated to Total Slack, delving into Mockery Science, Sadofuturistics, Megaphysics, Scatalography, Schizophreniatrics, Morealism, Sarcastrophy, Cynisacreligion, Apocolyptionomy, ESPectorationalism, Hypno-Pediatrics, Subliminalism, Satyriology, Disto-Utopianity, Sardonicology, Fascetiouism, Ridiculophagy, and Miscellatheistic Theology.
I guess I'm a little slow on the uptake, as this is nothing new, but that's the story of my life.  I haven't read the whole wikipedia page about them.  Basically, I'm looking at the list of people who subscribe.  Check it:
of Talking Heads, who is responsible for these amazing music videos.

Okay, so I've been wasting a lot of time recently watching old music videos.  That's only because I didn't have access to the MTV machine until it no longer played music television.  So, here're a a couple of cool ones: A-Ha and the White Stripes.

I never told you about this? Maybe I did but it didn't take? My dad actually is an ordained SubGenius minister ($30.00 MSRP) and he broadcasts the Hour of Slack every Thursday night at 11pm Central from WEFT Champaign/Urbana.

I didn't kow you were baptised as a Catholic?! wacky!

You know, I thought of you immediately, when I stumbled on this the other day, but I couldn't figure out why. You probably mentioned it to me. That's pretty wild.

Yeah, I'm a catholic. Sigh.

How's this compare to Not as star-studded, but a similarly pure manifestation of Slack, praise be to Bob.
