Pastafarian told he will lose his licence if caught driving without a colander on his head

A man’s insistence that it is his religious right to wear a colander on his head has strained his relationship with the Russian government.



Andrei Filin is the latest ‘Pastafarian’ to win the right to wear a colander for his official driver’s licence photos.

However, the deputy chief of Moscow’s State Traffic inspectorate, Vladimir Kuzin, has said that Mr Filin’s victory for the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster comes with a catch.



“The next time he is stopped by the traffic police, if he doesn’t have a pasta strainer on his head, his licence will be taken from him,” Mr Kuzin said.

Moscow officials seem to have a great sense of humour.

I'd still call it a win. You fuck with the system, the system fucks with you.
