Dare To Dream: Pastafarian Wins Two Year Battle To Get Driver's License Photo Taken Wearing Spaghetti Strainer On Head

This is a video detailing Pastafarian Sean Corbett's battle to exercise his religious freedom and have his of Arizona driver's license taken while wearing a colander on his head. Me? I just want to take a license photo that doesn't make me look like a serial killer for once. They never get my good side. "There are no sides, it's a head-on portrait." I want to face backwards.

'I tried a couple different locations and was met with a lot of pushback and resistance... I was scorned at every location I went to, and they put out a memo about me, so by the time I got to (the) fourth and fifth MVD, they stopped me at the door. They got angry at me and treated me with such disrespect'. He recently tried again and, after talking with the location's manager, was able to take the photo.

Sadly, after hearing about the license photo, an Arizona bureaucrat put a stop on the license and now wants Sean to have a new photo taken without his religious helmet. Me? I just want a Marie Calendar's spaghetti and meatballs microwave dinner right now.

After communicating with the OIG regarding my license, it is currently not revoked or suspended. They have a stop on the license which prevents me from making duplicates, but the license is still valid at this moment. They are requesting that I return to the MVD to surrender the license and be photographed without the headwear. I confirmed that my photo does not interfere with facial recognition software. This indicates that there is no error, they simply are discriminating against my religion. I have reached out to the AZDOT Civil Rights department and have spoken with a representative who is familiar with my story and is working with me to see what steps are necessary to fight this issue.

What a battle. Granted not a particularly bloody battle like the way I like to trounce my enemies, but everybody does battle differently. It's like tying your shoes -- some people use the bunny ear method, and other people do it the adult way that I never mastered. Okay so maybe it's nothing like tying your shoes. Maybe it's like riding a bicycle? I don't know, I suck at smilies. "You mean similes?" Those too.

Keep going for the video while I sign up for simile and metaphor lessons.

Thanks to Greg C, who just wants a driver's license photo taken while wearing a 'I HATE THE DMV' hat.

    Good luck getting a job with that as your ID

    What a dick head

    Good for that guy. I'm not a fan of any religion, I do however have respect for whoever practices, but when I see something like this where someone tests the limits of just how ridiculous the entire system is or can be it makes me laugh. And at least he is doing it in good fun, remember there's tons of groups of people out there that do this to take advantage of other people to profit on their beliefs as well as the system that allows them to do so.

    Pastafarian is not a religion, it is a hate group. Would you also applaud him if he wanted to be photographed in his Klan hood?

  • Jason Christopher

    lol, a hate group? You serious?

  • Ed Hopkins

    They do what they do as a mockery of Christianity. There is no activity required to be an Atheist, but these people are very active because it's insufficient for them simply not to believe, they must also attack believers -- out of hate.

  • BeastmanAIDS

    What absolute nonsense - equating satire to hate is one hell of a leap... way to crank up the dial on your victim complex. Also, it's a mockery of all religion - Christianity doesn't get any special attention.

  • Bling Nye

    Well, since this is the internet, I guess you can call them a hate group and I can call you a fucking moron?

  • WhiteEagle2

    It is absolutely not a hate group. Its a bunch of people that think religions shouldn't get special treatment.

  • Ed Hopkins

    "It is absolutely not a hate group. Its a bunch of people that think religions shouldn't get special treatment." Change the word "religions" to any other group of people and see how it sounds to your ear. Try "blacks" or "women" or "gays" and you'd sound like a card carrying member of a hate group.

  • heretikeen

    Sounds like someone's religious feelings got touched in the wrong place.
    How on Earth is "gay", "woman" or "black" in any way connected to "believes that the big, all powerful man in the sky will one day reward me if I'm a good chap"?

  • Bling Nye

    But still fight for special treatment ironically. Kinda hilarious really.

  • Anton Kovalenko

    Religions require from governments of many countries special treatment, and by law it should be either one law for every religion, if it's selective, then it's discrimination

  • Bling Nye

    Uh, yeah, I get that, and that's what the whole Pastafarianism thing was intended to point out. Satanists have been known to do it too.

  • Jeff Wiley

    How the hell does his licence expire in 2045? I have to renew mine every 5 years!

  • Brock

    As a US citizen, you get to pick some pros/cons per state. AZ has a 12 year license expiration, but downsides to match...

  • The downside is that he'll have the same dumb ass look on his face for 28 years.

  • WhiteEagle2

    In 12 years it will only be 2029.

  • Talon184

    I'd be all for this if the Pastafarian movement consisted of a majority of people who actually believe in the flying spaghetti monster. For the most part, however, it's just people making fun of organized religion.

  • BeastmanAIDS

    Ummm, that's the whole point. Making fun of organised religion and the legal loopholes that present themselves when religion is involved.
