A Texas Tech student is the first person in the United States to be allowed to wear a spaghetti strainer on his head in his photo I.D.
The man said he is a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. It was a religion made up by atheists to prove that government shouldn’t side with a certain religion. Their followers are known as pastafarians.
The man brought paperwork to show wearing a spaghetti strainer was part of his religion. He explained his situation to the person taking photos at the DMV and she told him if she wanted to wear it, that was fine. His friend took video of the situation.
The guy said he did it to make a point about acceptance and for people to understand another person’s outlook.
** A man tried to do this in New Jersey back in February but was denied. Another man in Austria in 2008 did the same thing but had to do a medical interview to make sure he was fit to drive. He was denied.
