Pomfret, New York Just Swore In A Pastafarian, Colander Hat And All

pastafarian town councilman

Forget national politics, local politics is where it’s all happening.

First we had the town council man with the Klingon resignation letter and now we have our very first town council Pastafarian swearing in ceremony.

Pomfret, New York’s newest town council member Christopher Schaeffer just got sworn into public office wearing a colander on his head.

He’s also breaking new ground. According to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster’s site, for which Schaeffer is a minister as well as a practitioner, he’s the first Pastafarian to be officially sworn in wearing the traditional colander.

Personally, I hope he’s starting a trend.
