Pastafarians forbidden to wear colander on passport photo

The Dutch Council of State has ruled that Pastafarians are not allowed to wear a colander on their passport photograph. The main reason for this is that it’s not a ‘real’ religion. The Council deemed wearing a colander to lack seriousness. Sure. Because covering your head with a cloth or putting a quarter of a […]

Armed with special tools that only a Grammar Vigilante would need or invent, he uses the night to fight misuse of apostrophes and place them where they were mistakingly left out. According to him, it’s not vandalism. It’s not a crime, it’s a service. One that the people need, but not necessarily want.

Also, we don’t know if he’s a billionnaire trained in a mysterious temple pretending to be nothing more than a playboy during the day. So maybe he isn’t like Batman. But maybe he is. He could be!
