My Hat Has Taken a Global Beating

Ok.  I am not going to win any sartorial challenges in the coming months, but my choice of headwear has drawn both interest and mockery – globally.  In my contribution to last week’s “For Immediate Release,” my friend Shel likened my hat to one that a paperboy in the 1930’s would wear – the little kid hawking papers on the street.

Not to be outdone, my friend Dave in Germany decided that it was not just enough to TALK about the hat – it has to be celebrated.  So in the spirit of poking fun at myself, here goes.  And Dave – just remember that your ass is grass and I have the lawnmower.

“Extra”-terrestrial interest in the hat:

So, I’ll will leave it to others to describe the “HAT INCIDENT.”  Lill?  Kristen?  Megan?

Please comment.




  1. These pics are too funny.

    I take a little bit of ribbing over my English driving hat, which has a similar look. It’s wool and keeps my head warm on cold mornings.

    Perhaps I should get a pic with me wearing it and use it as my Twitter av to so show my solidarity. 🙂

  2. In the interest of self protection, namely MINE… I would like to point out that there was a successful television show called Queer Eye for the Strait Guy and they would have CRUCIFIED you for your “cap”.

    Now I must admit, making fun of your cap has given me no end of fun and hilarity, but I am perplexed and sad that you haven’t mentioned the Lady GaGa makeover I gave you. Will that be in a future article? For the sake of your readers, I hope so. You do yellow highlights and pink lipstick much better than you carry off that awful hat.

    Thanks for making me famous.

    Being the recalcitrant individual that I am, not only am I going to keep the profile pic, I am going to alternate between that one and my cowboy hat:

    My headwear, like Gloria Gaynor, Will Survive.
