I'm Thinking of Joining the Flat Earth Society

Because it's only $9, and you get a certificate and some junk-bin FES merchandise.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of the spheroidal model, but I think membership would make a great conversation-starter.

Besides, if I'm in a particularly devilish mood, I can pick arguments with globists and see if I can make their heads explode with my obstinate ignorance and denial of blatantly obvious scientific observations.

Hey, ya can't argue politics ALL the time.

$9 is a small price to pay for almost infinite entertainment value.


  1. I've given some serious thought into joining the Flat Earth Society, but I decided against it, just in case I ever want to go into politics I don't think I'd have a chance when my political enemies (of which there would be many) dug up that one.

    Though I would get the Flat Earth Society vote in a cinch.

  2. There's that, BUT... it segues nicely into a discussion of comparison betwee FES and, say, global warming or socialist economics. Finishing nicely with "I joined as a joke. My opponent takes his belief in [global warming/socialism] seriously".

    Joining the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster works equally well.

  3. You could come work where I do. Random bizarre interactions are great entertainment, plus in about a week THEY would pay YOU that $9... minus taxes and such, of course.

    The flat earth organization has whacko appeal, but I like His Noodly Goodness myself.
