Default Silly Hats

It's pretty obvious that most cultures have some sort of specialized attire for their religious leaders and ceremonies. Most often, the attire includes some sort of hat or headgear that looks rather silly. Although the particular shape, size and symbolism of the headgear is culturally relative, the human impulse to use hats to denote importance seems universal. It's also prevalent to use hats to denote importance of people and rituals that have little or nothing to do with religion directly. Some of them were at one point based on necessity or practicality, such as a cowboy hat and big buckled belts but over time, tend to be worn for cultural reasons, such as country singers on stage, and in a way these dressing legacies become a sort of costume.

Anyways, now atheists can choose to engage in their own type of silly hat wearing behavior as one man in Austria has chosen to do so.

Quote:
An Austrian atheist has won the right to be shown on his driving-licence photo wearing a pasta strainer as "religious headgear".
Niko Alm first applied for the licence three years ago after reading that headgear was allowed in official pictures only for confessional reasons.
Mr Alm said the sieve was a requirement of his religion, pastafarianism.
