‘Pastafarian’ allowed to wear spaghetti strainer in driver’s license photo

The Registry of Motor Vehicles allowed a Massachusetts woman to wear a spaghetti strainer on her head in her driver’s license picture as an expression of her “Pastafarian” religion.

Normally I would think this woman was trying to keep space, versus illegal, aliens from being able to read her brainwaves.  When I saw that this was a religious issue I thought, and least she isn’t wearing one of those Islamic Bhurkas (?) that just show the eyes.

I would think that this qualifies as good news..  and so I applaud the news organization that simply reported this, and did not ridicule either her, or the Massachusetts DMV.    While there is always room to make fun of someone in a story such as this, it is nice to see that they can actually publish a story where they don’t feel like they have to make inane editorial remarks, and leave that kind of thing to bloggers, like me, who don’t have to possess any journalistic integrity.

While the woman in question said it was because of her Pastafarian religion I still wonder if, maybe, it wasn’t the space aliens who suggested it to her..  Maybe her thought waves were interfering with their navigational system.  You know, like when the airlines tell you that your cell phone could cause the place to crash, and then point out that you can use the on-board phone.   The one that probably connects you to the switchboard at CIA headquarters, where they  record everything you say.

I got this report, along with some other fun news, at WTSP.com.

Thanks,

That Joe Guy.
