Look at this: now the Intelligent Design creationists are branching out into pirate fashion. They’re everywhere!
Oh, yeah. No question, that guy is intelligently designed.
I’m a little skeptical of the “beautiful” claim on the cover, but that could just be me.
He’s not smooth of cheek, though, is he?
I thought a designer would include two eyes. Hope he’s not been designed a gay pirate. Baby jesus wouldn’t like that
So I.D. has gone International? ðŸ˜‰ Good one PZ!
And cover price is over $12 an issue, if my math is worth anything. No thanks.
It would be much more appropriate if that was the official magazine of Pastafarianism. May His Noodly Appendage be with all of you!
For about $1000 they could’ve retained a relatively decent and competent trademark attorney and realized what a mistake it would be to brand their periodical as they chose.
ARR! Be careful, me mateys. IDists be the worst quote scavengers on the high seas!
Just so everyone is clear, that’s International Design magazine–a fashion magazine that has nothing to do with creationism or the IDiots.
I bet the publishers of International Freebooter magazine are pissed!
Why does God hate one eyed people?
You knew this was coming.
Um, I don’t think that that magazine is I.D. as in “Intelligent Design” – it’s “International Design.” My neighbor, a professor of art, architecture and design is subscribed to that.
Just check out the magazine’s current issue:
Please, PZ – you rock, but you dropped the ball on this one.
Take a better look at the tags Dan.
Dan, it was a joke from PZ. He knows that the ID crowd doesn’t have any magazines. Heck their online “peer-reviewed” (i.e. not peer reviewed) journal has not been “published” for quite a while.
Yes, I see the humor and weirdness tags. Perhaps I just have a different sense of humor. I’m personally of the opinion that there’s plenty of material with which to get a laugh out of intelligent design than simply putting odd pictures up that happen to be associated with the letters “ID.”
The fact that it’s NOT an intelligent design-related pic kinda kills the joke.
How appropriate. ID is renowned as being the magazine for idiotic twats.
If you doubt that this is an ID magazine, how is it there are PIRATES + PARROTS?
Luckily it’s “International Design” and not Intelligent Design. You can’t trademark a couple of letters of the alphabet, can you? (You can’t copyright a title.) Otherwise Consolidated Edison would be suing AC-DC.
PZ – Hilarious! That post cracked me up!
So the IDers are finally admitting they’re really closet pastafarians – about bloody time! ðŸ˜‰
No, that IS the joke.
We could teach you, but we’d have to charge…
“No, that IS the joke.”
Okay – how is it funny then? I clearly don’t get the joke.
and I sez the budgie’s dead. it’s and ex-parrot!
oh, wait… that’s not the joke either is it.
well, good to see the christians doing some good by fighting global warming

You Californians have no excuse. Go to the coast and stop by the Monterey Bay Aquarium…
