ST. GEORGE, Utah (KSTU) – A Utah woman says she is the fourth person in the country who was allowed to wear a colander in her driver’s license photo.
According to the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety’s rules, religious headpieces cannot cause shadows on your face and the photograph must present a clear view of your face.
Asia Carrera-Lemmon, whose name is Jessica Steinhauser, identifies herself as an atheist and a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, also called Pastafarianism.
Pastafarianism is a religion where there are “no strict rules and regulations, there are no rote rituals and prayers and other nonsense,” according to the church’s website.
“I needed to get a new photo and I saw that a woman in Oklahoma had done it and was like ‘Hey this is great. This is perfect. I’ll do this,’” Lemmon told a Utah news station.
