Greetings, Pastafarians! This devoted follower has won his case in an Austrian court and is permitted to sport a colander on his head for his driver's license photograph.

But yea, I say, for this may be heresy, as aren't pirate hats preferred by our one and only? Perhaps the gentleman is Western Orthodox? Or tempted by another side?

And what of tinfoil? Should it be permitted by the Department of Motor Vehicles, or does the foil just cause too much glare when they use a photographic flash?

I trust that we can debate these issues in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. These are, after all, some of the more important questions of our time. Pictures welcome.

@jespah,
Colorado doesn't let you wear glasses even if corrective lenses are specifically required to operate a vehicle.

The next step, Mr Alm told the Austrian news agency APA, is to apply to the Austrian authorities for pastafarianism to become an officially recognised faith.

I think that's the problem. If the government recognized pastafarianism then they would be able to legally tell people what the headgear is supposed to be.

But when are we going to recognize that the US is a pastafarian nation? The evidence of a noodly appendage is right there in the Constitution.

@parados,
I submit as proof that the founders were pastafarian the following pictures...
It's no coincidence that the Constitution is written on paper the color of pasta.

Notice how the Constitution seems to flow out of the pasta.

I would have no problem getting in his cab, he's kind of cute in that young, fanatical way.

As long as your whole face can be seen clearly the picture is accepted.
It was not really because he is a pastafarian or of religous reasons.

Could be!

Or it could be some other made up religion.

Well, I'm perfect as the Spaghetti Monster Goddess Herself (Irish Monster Division, County Mayo). Send me your thithes.
No, no, I mean your trinkets. Or tri-lobed clovers.

@jespah,
Doesn't tinfoil contain aluminum (u. s. spelling)? Aluminum fears abound, forsooth. Would that be a threat to the arresting officer?

Even the font in the Declaration looks somewhat noodly. And I swear I see the likeness of tomato sauce stains on the document!

@Thomas,
I thought they were pepper, but you may be right, by this time they would be black.

Correct. He only found a kind of legal loophole.

Besides that: the driving licence was already issued in October 2009 - Alm told the orf radio station that he didn't know he could have got it already then. (He had ticked on the form that he would collect the licence personally at the police headquarter's.)

@Walter Hinteler,
True, but when he did show up, did he bring enough pasta for everyone???

@jespah,
He tried, but some of us stole it, while it arrived at the table steaming in a bowl, with a bowl of butter and a bowl of parmigiano.. (my first pasta experience in Rome, not for us, we were very tired and just picked something, but for the people next to us, in this neighborhood place. I was transfixed. Sophisticated couple piling on the butter and then the cheese and scarfing the pasta down before it cooled. That was the first day.)
