You're in luck if you're a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster and need to get a driver's license photo in Wisconsin.
You can wear a colander on your head.
A Madison man has won the right to wear a spaghetti strainer on his head in his driver's license photo.It's official. In Wisconsin, colanders are "religious headwear."
The Department of Transportation has instructed all DMV offices to recognize colanders as religious headwear after receiving a letter from the man's lawyer.
Derek Allen says his client is a Pastafarian and was denied his religious right as a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, first established in 2005.
"If you just hear about it in passing it sounds silly - someone wants to wear a spaghetti strainer in their driver's license," Allen says. "It's easy to brush off as something silly but I think the principal behind it is an important one."
Pastafarianism, the mocking of religion, particularly the Christian tradition, is sanctioned by the state of Wisconsin.
Is this a victory for religious freedom?
This is just a joke.
