Yes, if you can prove that a) Pastafarianism is your sincerly held religious belief  b) that such head coverings are part of the religious rules.

I imagine in some states it would be easier than others. As many (most?) states have refused to go along with the federal government's attempt to mandate requirements for driver's license cards (in a sideways attempt to get a national id card) each state has their own restrictions, exceptions, etc. There are probably some states where it would be relatively easy as this head covering does not interfere with using the picture as a identification.

Is it bad that instead of laughing at this I just thought of my history teacher? He was ALWAYS spewing nonsense about the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster... At least I thought it was nonsense at the time.:confused:

I passed this thread over this morning, but a friend mentioned it while we were moving the lab so I had to come look.

Freaking hilarious!

I was touched by his noodly appendage at DragonCon.

It was soft and fuzzy and it came down an escalator.
