Today's Most Bizarre Picture: Politician wears spaghetti strainer on his head during ceremony

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

TODAY'S MOST...Interesting picture of a politician wearing something on his head: Yes, that is a man wearing a strainer on his head during his swearing in ceremony for a town council in upstate New York. Christopher Schaeffer wore what many people have in their kitchens and use to strain water from spaghetti.

He said he wore it because he's a minister with the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. You can look it up on the internet, the religion has followers all over the world, and has no dogma whatsoever. It started in 2005, and claims its not a joke. Schaeffer says he just wanted to make a statement about religious freedom. Schaeffer says he's serious about doing his job as a council member for the city of Pomfret. People in Russia who follow this church are called Pastafarians.
