The possibility of Bubbles/Faye nuptials got me thinking - who in the cast is ordained as a minister with one of the on-line churches (Universal Life, Dudeism, Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, etc)?  You get ordained for free, but you have to send them $30 or so if you want a spiffy Certificate of Ordination.

You can choose up to four, but add as many as you wish in commenting posts.

I am so curious now.
So how many registered Jedi among the cast or the readership?
Not just Ministers but also Knights and Councillors.

There is a difference between spare parts, extra parts and left over parts.

Never mind a wedding - a Brother Pintsize Travelin' Fire & Brimstone Salvation Show sermon would have to be entertaining.

Station doesn't need ordination. He's a ship's captain.  :angel:

That only applies to officiating at weddings, and even then it's an urban myth.  The US and Royal Navies specifically prohibit ship captains from doing so - that's what chaplains are for.  Since he is, for all practical purposes, the city manager of a municipality, if a state's laws allow it he might slide in that way.  Or not.

Good grief, I left Punkbot off the list!  He's sure to be a ULC minister, and absolutely sincere about it.

Edit:  Gawd I hate it when I find typos ten hours later.

Spookybot is not an ordained minister, but they can still perform weddings via the expedient of editing reality such that the couple has always been married.

I could definitely see Jimbo being ordained. It seems like the kind of thing he would do.

I am an ordained Pastafarian minister. I became ordained to officiate my friends' wedding. Their families wanted a more traditional service, but I promised not to wear a colander or pirate regalia.

I picked three of the top four results, and immediately regret not picking the fourth (Jimbo).

Definitely Jimbo.

Barry would claim to be an ordained minster. (no ability to write in) :(

Station can probably ordain ministers, because... well, Station. If not, I think if the subject came up, it would be, "You need a minister? Wait a second... OK, I'm ordained."

Ah, right. I vaguely remembered a robot with a Mohawk, but couldn't remember where we'd seen him. Thanks!

My wife and I were married by an ordained ArchDruid. Our families were too ill or too far away to attend, so yes, it was a Druidic ceremony.

Go ahead, say it. "Funny, you don't look Druish."  :claireface:

As someone who disagrees with the tally, I'm curious as to which 3 moments.

Well, only three things made me laugh out loud:

- Planet of the Apes gag
- Michigan J Frog gag
- the infinite mirror effect of watching the pre-release bootleg of the film at the current moment.
