Mike’s the Stupid News: Austrian Atheist Wins Right to Wear Pasta Strainer in License Photo [PHOTO]
PASTAFARIAN: Nico Alm, an atheist living in Austria who belongs to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, went to court and has won the right to wear a pasta strainer on his head for his driver’s license photo. The church Alm is a member of is a US-based “faith” whose members call themselves “Pastafarians”.
Vienna, Austria Police spokesman Manfred Reinthaler denies the photo approval has anything to do with religious grounds. “The only criterion for photos in driving license applications is that the whole face must be visible," he explained. Reinthaler added the license was issued because Alm's face was fully visible in the photo. Either way, Nico looks quite fetching in his DL pic.
