Muh hat!


This is a thing that I ordered from Canada that came today!

The tail is raccoon, the hat itself is rabbit. I’d’ve splashed out the extra money for an all-raccoon hat, but it looks all wrong. It’s way too big and puffy for a coonskin cap. Stupid Canucks.

I admit, the ones with the faces on are cool. The fox, the coyote (it has legs!). Ooooo…and the skunk! Are those glass eyes I see? Honestly, though, I think you have to be Jeremiah Man-Mountain to pull off one of those. The hat model looks mighty silly in ’em.

In defense of my sartorial choices, I was born 20 miles from Crockett Tavern.

Hm. I think this thing is shedding. Is rabbit fur supposed to do that?

After just a few clicks, I’m getting served ads for fur hats everywhere…

Just wait until you come home one day and find Jack making sweet sweet love to your cap!

$170 for that? I should just chase down a couple of trash pandas and have one custom made…

Very handsome. You could join a band of Battle of the Alamo re-inactors.

I keep the ad blocker turned off for the HQ (Hey, an Ewok’s gotta eat). Fur. Hats. Everywhere. Top banner, side banner, interstitial. El oh El.

I’ve thought of that, Ric Fan. I’m’a hang the hat on a hook.

They really ought to offer a “road-kill du jour” hat, for the budget-conscious, and to clear out excess inventory.

(I’d love to wear the Coyote to a PETA rally, huh?)

Ooh, I love that hat Ms Weasel! I hate raccoons with a passion. My dear husband was attacked by one in my presence so I have good cause. As much as I’d love to sport your hat, I love the multicolor Russian ‘bestseller’. Need to save my pennies for that one.

It doesn’t have ear flaps. A proper hat has to have ear flaps, like the mad bomber hats. Especially rabbit fur.

Curly (Howard – Three Stooges) had a skunk cap.

I had a sheepskin ‘Mad Bomber’ hat that some mice decided would make a lovely home – muh favorite hat, wife hated it (that is not why it was my favorite, it was WARM dammit!)

And guess who discovered there were mice living in it….

Alas, she turfed it before I could even give it a proper burial, no doubt afraid I’d try and salvage it.

So I keep thinking of buying the following hat to let her know who wears the hats in the family!!!

Oh and I wear the pants too! and she told me I’m allowed to tell people that!

Oh, Skandia, OF COURSE it has earflaps. What kind of savage do you take me for…?

Kewl! I got one like that from Disney World when I was a kid for like $25. Shows how inflated their prices were as I bought a rabbit fur mad bomber for the same price when I was in my mid 20’s. And no, it shouldn’t be shedding. D:

As a Texan whose first essay was written about Davy Crockett, I approve. XD

Dogs look at you real funny when you wear the coyote, according to friend who has, and wears, one.

Surprised he hasn’t been charged with cultural appropriation

I clicked on the coyote, too manly, and the fox, too metrosexual, and now all I see on every ad on every website are those hats.
I hate google.

Crazy Crow here in Texas sells Indian and trapper era stuff, including hides with faces. It’s for Pow Wow and Rendezvous crafts.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
