Flying Spaghetti Monster Sign
Falls Road
Hampden, Maryland
(reported no longer there … let me know if it pops up elsewhere)


When I saw this marvelous piece of street-arty-goodness last September I slammed my brakes so hard that it was a good thing that no one was behind me at the time 🙂

Created by this great row-house’s owner, Jacob Corbin-Beal, it celebrates Baltimore’s Hampden neighborhood slogan “Believe”, the local endearment “Hon”, and the infamous Flying Spaghetti Monster …. all in one fabulously wondrous sign.

 Even the front of the building is delightfully strange and just twisted enough to be totally cool. When I visited, it also featured a randomly matching juice pouch.

  1. Fabulous sign! I was thinking of building my own personal FSM for holiday lawn decorating. I’d add a Santa hat for a jolly touch.

    And I had never seen the fun video. RAmen, indeed!

      1. Oh, in my neighborhood it would be quite unappreciated, but I don’t plan to stay there forever, so I don’t mind ruffling a few feathers. The neighbors know I’m different, and they still talk to me, but I’m sure they wouldn’t want to have me over for tea 🙂

        What would probably happen here is that the FSM would be stolen within a week. When I first moved to the neighborhood 8 years ago, I had a palm tree, three flamingos and alligator (all lit) on the front lawn for the holidays. I put a Santa hat in the alligator’s mouth. The whole display was gone within a week. It could have been a college kid grabbing it for a dorm display, but I rather suspect it was a disgruntled neighbor who felt I shouldn’t be allow such flippant treatment of the holiday.
