Score One for the Flying Spaghetti Monster!
As some of you know, I am a Pastafarian and
member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
I was touched by His Noodly Appendage.
So in light of the current crop of ridiculous blather about "religious freedom"
in the United States which is code for "freedom for Christians"
(religious freedom sure as hell doesn't apply to Muslims),
this admittedly old news from Austria made me very happy.
Short version: a man named Niko Alm learned that the only headgear
allowed in Austrian drivers' licenses was confessional headgear.
Mr. Alm said that because he is a Pastafarian,
he should be allowed to wear a pasta strainer on his head.
Authorities required a doctor's note saying Alm was mentally fit to drive
and then issued him the driver's license.
Doesn't he look great in that colander?
