Love it! Would make a great gift. NB: I have no info about the maker, but saw a retweet by Jamy Ian Swiss. I assume it’s legit.

Wow, that one really has fidelity towards Bobby’s original sketch.  Good one.  Although I’d attach it to a bag or a coat, rather than my neck. 

Arrrrgh, it be nearly adequate to hoist mi heart up the halyard displaying mi new found allegiance with the Pastifarians.  Arrrgghh, praise be him, Ramen.

Oooo, cool idea, but I would think that the wires sticking out all over the place make wearing it problematic. It needs to be encased in glass or plastic.

Me too! I got that and a “zombie” heart with tentacles erupting from it (on a necklace). I’ve worn each of them to work, and unfortunately, once a person has a certain kind of…rep, no one asks any more.

I’ve been looking for the FSM tee shirt but I like this one too!  I’m getting the keychain and the peapod necklace for my grandaughter. It’s her nickname.

Original listing is gone because I tried to order one and it never arrived ... It wasn’t expensive but fortunately I was able to get my money back through PayPal and close the store. No idea what was up with that (the person seemed sincere, and even emailed me at one point), but I’m glad they shut down the storefront.

Caveat emptor!

Evolve Fish has a lot of FSM merchandise. I have ordered from them several times and have received everything quickly.

Huh! Even though I’ve never had a disappointing etsy transaction, I’m glad you followed through and got ‘em shut down!

Yeah ... moral of the story is to go through PayPal or use a credit card. PayPal has a system for getting your money back so long as you inform them in a timely manner (like within 45 days or something). No guarantees but at least it worked for me.

I’ve heard of people getting scammed when the seller tells them to send a check or money order. I wouldn’t do it unless you’re very sure of the seller’s integrity.

PayPal is useful in that way as long as you file relatively quickly—I think it was actually 30 days when I had an ebay seller flake on me. I was waiting for a glass shipment from Canada, and after paypal and ebay BOTH refused to help me, I reported the transaction to my bank (Chase) which refunded me my money and continued the action on my behalf. So when people say they’re nervous about using their credit cards online, I tell them it’s safer for them than sending a check—and a money order?? No way!

That’s damn depressing that the site shut down but if they’re bilking people then so be it. I did find several FSM items on ebay including a watch of all things! Never had a problem with paypal and I’ve been with them for a couple of years, having only one incident with a seller. They (paypal) traced the money back and the seller admitted his mistake. He blamed Me for not sending the money to him. We are using the credit card more often now and so far, no difficulties.

Well, to be fair for all I know the shop owner got hit by a car or something. All contact ceased so it made it easy for me to recover the funds, which makes me think it wasn’t intentional bilking.

I really hate that because I wanted that key chain. It would have been a conversation piece to start an innocent discussion that could lead to skepticism, that could lead to humanism, that could lead to ... ! big surprise

The place I’m talking about only had the necklace. Other links in this thread are unrelated, and I think they do have keychains.
