HOLD: Hour of Our Literary Denomination, or Hour of Our Lady of Distraction.


So this has been floating around Tumblr lately:

A circle of religious symbols around a chaos-starred sacred chao.

And since some people have wondered what the symbols are, I thought I’d try my hand at listing them.

In the center: The Sacred Chao from Principia Discordia
Around the center: The Chaos Star from from Michael Moorcock’s Eternal Champion stories
From the top, clockwise:
The Five-Fingered Hand of Eris from Principia Discordia
The Yellow Sign from Call of Cthulhu, inspired by Robert Chambers’ The King in Yellow
The Muted Post Horn from Thomas Pynchon’s The Crying of Lot 49
The Invisible Pink Unicorn from
The Elder Sign from H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos
The Flying Spaghetti Monster from
One of the many representations of “Bob” from the Church of the SubGenius
The symbol for Phaeton, a hypothetical planet between Mars and Jupiter

Personally, I would have added the deathly hallows from Harry Potter, a policeman assaulting a protestor, a teddy bear receiving oral sex from the Humanist human, and the Coca-Cola logo — for a total of twelve. Wouldn’t that make a nice clock?
