Members of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (Pope: Richard Dawkins) will be delighted to hear that the religion of Pastafarianism has been approved by the Austrian government.

I was never much enamoured of the spaghetti monster concept, but I rather take to pastafarianism. Come to think of it, though, I do spend overmuch time at the shrine of the Blessed Jobs in Covent Garden. I’d better not risk apostasy.
