Man Wears Spaghetti Colander on His Head in Driver's License Photo
03 June 2017
Sean Corbett has an official driver’s license featuring a photo of him wearing a Spaghetti colander after years of trying to be photographed with the spaghetti strainer hat and being rejected at the motor vehicles department.
Sean Corbett of Chandler, Arizona, told the press that getting permission for the image to be used took some doing.
Mr. Corbett calls himself a "pastafarian," who wears the item as part of his religious headgear, went to several Arizona motor vehicle locations for two years before he found one that would let him take the photo with the strainer on his head. "It's kind of been a personal mission to keep pushing and not let the naysayers say I can't,"
The Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) is the deity of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, or Pastafarianism. Pastafarianism (a portmanteau of pasta and Rastafarian) is a social movement that promotes a light-hearted view of religion and opposes the teaching of intelligent design and creationism in public schools.
"Pastafarianism is part of the church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, which says the world was created 5,000 years ago by a Flying Spaghetti Monster," Corbett said jocking. "It's moro of a satirical thing than reverent."
“It’s nothing anybody should have to experience,” Corbett told the Republic. “They shouldn’t be bullied because their beliefs are different from other people.”
Most states require people to take their driver's license photos free of headgear or other items, but exceptions are sometimes made for religious reasons.
Touched by His Noodly Appendage, the parody of Michelangelo's Creation of Adam has become an iconic image of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
