An Austrian man has won the right to be shown on his driving-licence photo wearing a pasta strainer as “religious headgear”.
Niko Alm first applied for the licence three years ago after reading that headgear was allowed in official pictures only for religious reasons.
Although a self-confessed atheist, Niko belongs to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster and said the sieve was a requirement of his religion, pastafarianism.
I’m saying no more, though. Religious debates can often have unforeseen consequences. I mean, just because I Cannelloni understand it, it doesn’t mean he’s con-Fusilli-ed (sorry).
