I'm trying to think of something to bring to an omni potluck. There will be 40+ people in attendance, and I mostly don't have any idea what other people will bring, except I know someone else has the cake covered already (which sucks because that was my only idea!).

Spaghetti monster and/or pirate themed food would be appropriate, but I can't come up with any good ideas. Please help?

I should also mention that whatever I take will have to sit out for a few hours (maybe in my car?) because we are going to another lunch first and then the potluck immediately after that.

I say just bring more cake! I don't know how one person can bring cake that's going to please all 40 people. Or maybe cookies, then you can do squiqqly icing and eyes and make them little spaghetti monster cookies!

You could take pasta...

Our spaghetti
Who art in the colander
Hallowed be thy sauce
Thy serving come
Thy strands be wrung
On forks as they are on spoons
Give us this day our veggie meatball
And forgive us our starchiness
As we forgive those who are starchy against us
And lead us not into Kraft parmessan
But deliver us from Chef Boy Ardee
For thine is the garlic
And the onion and the bay leaves
For ever and ever.
Ramen

Foccacia? Sitting in your car for a few hours, I wouldn't bring anything besides baked goods unless you have a cooler.

Focaccia is a good idea. I will probably end up doing that. Thanks!

Arrrrrrrugula salad
rum balls
pirate ship watermelon boat fruit salad (fruit salad in half a watermelon with pirate flags and sails stuck in)
If you go with the focaccia, maybe arrange the toppings in a skull and cross bones or treasure map design.
Get those toothpicks that are shaped like swards and load them up with a variety of olives and pickled veggies, or sliced fresh fruit and whole berries.
Any round food can be called cannon balls, but an especially cute idea is to dip maraschino cherries with stem in melted chocolate, then trim the stem so just a little bit of it sticks out.
Maybe a spiced toasted seed mix could be called parrot food.
A bag of Pirates' Booty

You are planning all my party food from now on.

Well, party food planning is one of my favorite activities. Often I end up enjoying the planning more than the actual party.
