When you’re drinking beer, smoking cigars, and playing cards, sophomoric humor tends to dominate, and usually there is one theme or target for the weekend, This year, something about this humble hat provoked the onslaught of insult humor. Some of the best lines:
Did you steal that hat from a homeless person?
How far down into the dumpster did you need to go to find that thing?
That hat looks like it’s ready to spontaneously combust.
Any readers so inclined are invited to share their jibes.
UJ explained, somewhat sheepishly, that he rescued the hat from the dustbin of history, when one of his friends was getting ready to pitch it — but now he wears it with a curious pride, knowing that he will suffer the slings and arrows of rude family humor. It keeps the sun off his head, and the brim can be tugged and maneuvered into all kinds of shapes — which was one of the things that made the hat an apt target for our jokes.
