Georgia won’t allow Pastafarian to wear colander in license photo

Chris Avino took a driver’s license picture with a colander on his head, claiming it was religious head gear. But instead of sending his license, the state sent a letter calling Pastafarianism “a philosophy that mocks religion” and telling him he has to retake the picture. Avino is protesting the decision.

Whether or not Chris Avino could sport a colander in his driver’s license photo became an issue for the Georgia Department of Driver Services.

Avino got a temporary ID sporting the strainer after telling people it was a religious headdress — he is a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. But the department later changed its mind and said Avino would have to retake the picture.

A colander, they said, is just a colander.
