Pastafarian Niko Alm Wins The Right To Wear A Pasta-Strainer On His Official Austrian Driver Licence Photograph...

Wearing the pasta strainer is an integral part of my Pastafarian religion says Austrian driver Niko Alm, a self confessed athiest.
Niko belongs to the international Church Of The Flying Spaghetti Monster, a light hearted US based faith whose members adhere to the dogma that no dogmas be allowed in their religion. Friday is evidently their holy day.
The Austrian authorities initially required Mr Alm to obtain a doctor's certificate to show he was psychologically fit to drive.
Good on you and your fellow believers Niko.
We need to celebrate the small victories.
No matter how tiny or weird they may be...


  1. What can I say? I'm a Dudist myself.

  2. I never realised pasta strainers could be such a fashion accessory.......such choice!

  3. I'm going to charge religious discrimination. Why should we who venerate Cookie Monster not be allowed to wear Cookie Jars in our passport photos? The double standard - it's outrageous!

    1. I think you're right Kevin.
      I'd be inclined to take the matter to the International Court of Justice in the Hague.
      Perhaps we could meet outside, say 11am Tuesday...

  4. I don't think their head gear will protect them on Judgement Day.

  5. Fight for your rights Kevin! If people can wear turbans, veils and strainers on their heads in their passport and driver's license photos then cookie jars can't be too far behind. I assume you are not a citizen of Afghanistan or North Korea where such rights might (?) be nipped in the bud so go for it.

  6. I think they should all be wrapped in tin foil in case of alien invasion
