A student at Texas Tech University appears to be the first American to have his drivers license photo taken and to successfully obtain a drivers license while wearing a pasta strainer on his head.
The student, Eddie Castillo, pulled off the stunt by claiming to practice Pastafarianism and belong to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, reports KLBK.
The Texas Tech student added that he was surprised that he succeeded in Lubbock because of its reputation as a bastion for conservatism.

“Hey everybody, look at meeeeeeeeeeeee”. (where’s that “attention whore” graphic when you need it?)
the TIN FOIL HAT people!
LOL! Probably got one of those bureaucrats on a bad day thinking to himself “I don’t give a $h*t if this guy wants to look like a moron in his photo”.... click
Making a point about Muslims being able to wear their hijab in photos...
Is that still a felony or have they changed that law/regulation after being ridiculed so much for it?
I think I still have one of those shirts, but the silk screening was so crappy that it might be legal again with so much missing.
What does RSA stand for (if it’s safe to type it out)
He will seriously consider the need to renounce Pastafarianism when he turns 40ish and starts to get that paunch over the belt line.
Castillo also expressed his hope that he isnt seen as poking fun at religious head-wear in other peoples faiths. Instead, he said, he hopes his action opens the doors for new-age religion and celebrates in a sense that we are a melting pot of a country.
He seemed pretty concerned that a religion that has head-wear not be insulted. However he fought against creation being taught in schools.
EFF sold t-shirts with a machine readable version that technically were a federal felony to display to foreign nationals. The t-shirt money funded Zimmerman's defense.
Zimmerman 1, Feds 0.
On the back it says: "Warning, this shirt is a munition under ITAR etc..."
****I dont give a $h*t if this guy wants to look like a moron in his photo****
Wait till he is pulled over for a traffic violation! They will realize they are dealing with a dumbass.
We worked with a man who was so dumb he didn’t know he was dumb!
He got pulled over and the cops immediately realized he was a dumbass! They even told him he was dumb, so dumb they wouldn’t even give him a ticket!
He was so dumb he came to work and told everyone all about it.
Pastafarians listen to Spaghettae music and like Bob Lasagnaley.
“Pastafarians” are a bunch of smarty-pants atheists who love to ridicule people of faith for worshipping “skydaddy” or, “your imaginary friend”. “Flying Spaghetti Monster” is just the atheists’ latest thumbing their nose at the Almighty.
But this dude who think he’s soooooo smart (like most atheists) is going to realize in the next few traffic stops that he made an abysmally stupid decision. They allowed the photo with the strainer since it doesn’t hide the face. Muslim women CAN be photographed in hijab since it doesn’t hide facial features.
But it leaves members of both categories somewhat `marked’.
Perhaps pastafarian is a break away of the subgenius sect
The world was created by Orzo, the father of all gods. He married Macaroni and begot Rotini, the god of war and his sister, Vermacelli.
When this nut job goes dressed in a suit and tie for a job interview, he’ll have to present his drivers license to the interviewer. The result of the interview will be:”Don’t call us we won’t call you ever”
Go Tech!?! My alma mater. If someone is determined to be a doofus and take a picture to document it, why stand in his way?
“There is indeed a kind of animal, neither male nor female, a thing of the neuter gender, lately  started up among us. It is called a macaroni. It talks without meaning, it smiles without pleasantry, it eats without appetite, it rides without exercise, it wenches without passion”
That's because he doesn't want to lose his.
he was dumb. was he also a sociopath?
if so, be nice to him, he’ll probably be your next manager
He was/is making a point. You can’t have missed it?
i’m guessing two things:
1) he’s single
2) he is gonna have trouble finding a good job
I shan't warn you again. Do not use French words on a Religious Spaghetti Thread!
No doubt. It is easier to ridicule a religion that advocates loving your enemy than one that advocates killing everyone that disagrees with theirs!
This is simply ONE of over 2000 religions worldwide that America will have to honor with special facilities, holidays and policies/procedures to include new government laws to protect their integrity and rights.
I’m thinking of starting a free for all sex religion. Wanna join?
They should have made wearing a pasta strainer a necessary condition of holding the license, on the same level as corrective lenses. Stupid is as stupid does.
