Picture Of The Day

If I had to choose a state that would be open to non-traditional religious expression, even from atheists, it would not be Utah. But that's where Jessica Steinhauser (a/k/a/ former porn star Asia Carrera) surprisingly encountered zero resistance when she needed a new driver's license and wanted to wear a pasta strainer on her head for the photo. The Mormon State's DMV clerk recognized Carrera's rights as a Pastafarian and here's the result.

The only sad part of this is that the state had to acknowledge that belief in the Flying Spaghetti Monster counts as a religion. Someday, Utah (and the rest of the US) will be free enough that we can all wear a colander on our heads, even those of us who don't believe in any supernatural beings, satirical or otherwise.
