Awesome Aussie Atheist wearing "religious" headpiece in drivers licence (pasta strainer)

A friend sent me this link on twitter. I love love love this story.


Basically in Australia you can wear headpieces in your drivers license picture as long as it is religious. Well this Atheist guy was finally given permission to do the same. Only his is a spaghetti strainer. Hope this makes you guys smile!

He's from Austria, not Australia. They're pretty similarly named though. :)

This is too funny, I rolled on the floor when I read it at BBC

 

I hope this is true, just for the comedic value alone.

Regardless of where he't from, the story is still hysterical! (I meant to put that on my first comment, but I too type faster than my brain can keep up with sometimes, lol.)

Using the permission he got as a precedent, he now is going to apply for getting his church of the flying spaghetti monster to be recognized as an official religion in Austria. Think this could lead to some very funny and interesting follow up.
