A fake edition of the Loose Canon titled The Loose Canon Complete Second Edition was published by Eric Whitfield on January 18, 2014 but it is not the real Loose Canon. It was published in the spirit of preserving the Loose Canon for future generations for at least 400 years. Even though the goal is noble, the efforts were not authorized by the Council of the Olive Garden and thus should be ignored. This book is not to be purchased by real Pastafarians; because it is a fake edition, only fake Pastafarians should buy it. This book isn't the real deal, and contrary to the title, it is in no way "complete."
