This is America. The land of the free. The home of the brave. And (probably) the only place in the world where you are legally allowed to (or are crazy enough to want to for that matter) wear a pasta strainer on your head in your ID picture.

A Texas Tech University student named Eddie Castillo just won the right to wear a pasta strainer on his head in his driver’s license because he is part of an obscure religion called “Pastafarians.”

According to the Austinist, the religion “worships the ‘Flying Spaghetti Monster'” and was created in 2005 by atheists parodying creationism.

Next up in our fantasies, topless women claim to be part of some nudist religion so they can take naked driver’s license photos. The future is now, folks.
