Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster

Austrian Man Wins Right To Wear Pasta Strainer In License Photo : The Two-Way : NPR.

You gotta love it.   An Austrian man fought to have the right to wear a pasta strainer, yes folks, a colander, on his head for his license picture.  Not only did he win the fight –being a good blogger like the rest of us he has detailed his story on his blog.   If you read the NPR article above  (just click on the link) there is a place within the article to click on to read his blog which they very nicely translate to English for us non-Austrians.   He is, indeed, a Pastafarian.   It made me laugh.  I hope it gets the same response from you.   Enjoy and embrace your pastafarian side today by having a big ole bowl a spaghetti.


  1. I am in Miami, Florida, USA. I am glad the fellow won the battle to wear this charming Italian hat ! My Roman and Sicilian ancestors are ready to return from their graves to help him if needed.

  2. That’s awesome haha!

  3. He is quirky:-)
    I shared your thoughtful comments with Christine. Thank you so much. I appreciate hearing that we are communicating.

    • Thanks for sharing them with her! I just think we all need to be sensitive to everyone around us, you know??? That is one thing that I have learned being the sister in law to Carlton—Down Syndrome—you just don’t know all that is going on with someone and in many cases you just are seeing a snapshot and it is not fair or right to make a judgment on that person ! I am all about awareness and learning these days—it never stops!!!

  4. Oh Beth Ann, thanks for sharing this. I laughed and laughed and laughed! “Church of the Flying spaghetti Monster”….hahahahaha!! And he won! *laughs harder*

  5. There sure are a lot of goofy people in this world. It seems to me he is just making fun of churches and freedom of religion. Must admit though, the church name certainly got my attention.

    • You might be right about him making fun but it made me laugh–it really did!!! I think he just wanted to make a point and was choosing a unique way to do it!!!

  6. Hahaha – wow! I think this dude has too much time on his hands! 🙂

  7. Pastafarian! lol Some people amaze me. Doubt he could have gotten away with that in this state.

    • I am sure he could not get away with it. I was told to not smile for my last passport picture—you know how hard it is to NOT have any expression on your face??? Now my picture looks like I am a thug!!! LOL And I really am not!!!

  8. Great persistence…I dare say 😉

I love your comments--each one makes me smile and makes a difference for Comments for a Cause! Thanks!
