Pastafarian Niko Alm has won the right to wear a colander as religious headgear on his Austrian driver’s license. Congratulations!
Niko Alm first applied for the licence three years ago after reading that headgear was allowed in official pictures only for confessional reasons.
Mr Alm said the sieve was a requirement of his religion, pastafarianism.
The Austrian authorities required him to obtain a doctor’s certificate that he was "psychologically fit" to drive.
The BBC article is fantastic and can be found here.
