On October 12, 2009 Niko Alm shocked hundreds if not dozens of people by having his driver's license picture taken while wearing a colander on his head. This tradition has somehow survived and spread to other nations. The founder of the Pastafarian religion back in 2018 had to finally address this growing religious expression. Did Niko Alm's actions act as a way to add ritual this validation to Pastafarianism? or were his actions insignificant and will not matter in 100 years?
