The unusual religion was started in the U.S. by 25-year-old Bobby Henderson in 2005 as a protest against teaching students only one alternative to evolution in public schools.On Wednesday, Ady battled with motor registry staff at VicsRoads in Carlton, Melbourne to wear his headgear for religious reasons in his licence photo. He documented the events in a series of videos uploaded to youTube.
Other Pastafarians have tried their hand at wearing their spaghetti strainers during licence photos, including this woman in Massachusetts and another fellow Australian last year. Benjamin Ady has been contacted for comment.
Based on these recent events, it's safe to say this is becoming quite the trend amongst followers of The Church of The Flying Spaghetti Monster.
