PJ O’ ROURKE ON HATS

I find this man very funny:

“A hat should be taken off when you greet a lady and left off for the rest of your life. Nothing looks more stupid than a hat. When you put on a hat you are surrendering to the same urge that makes children wear mouse ears at Disney World or drunks wear lampshades at parties. Wearing a hat implies that you are bald if you are a man and that your hair is dirty if you are a woman. Every style of hat is identified with some form of undesirable (derby = corrupt party worker; fedora = Italian gangster; top hat = rich bum’ pillbox = Kennedy wife. Et cetera). Furthermore, the head is symbolically identified with the sexual organs, so that when you walk down the street wearing a hat, anyone who has the least knowledge of psychology will see you as having a beaver hanging off your penis or feathers protruding from your genitals. A hat should only be worn if you are employed as a racehorse trainer or are hunting ducks in the rain.”

  1. Hey! I wore a hat to BLINKS wedding!

    • I remember it. A bit of a cross between a fedora and a derby. Makes you a corrupt Italian mafia party worker. Sounds about right.

      • And here I was going for the "Interweb Minister" look.

  2. It was Blink's wedding after all Kev; I think even Mister O' Rourke would have loved your hat!

    • OXe did comment on how "Original" I looked………

  3. A beaver hanging on your penis? Lovely image that.

  4. Very funny! PJ O'Rourke I mean, not the beaver / penis thing. That's not funny at all.
