History of Hat Eating
- Ogg Chhhee (the caveman) would keep insects under his hat. When he was hungry he would take off his hat and pick out a few juicy bugs and eat them. Squuaz Zeeet (another caveman from another tribe) saw this and thought he was picking pieces off his hat and eating them. So he started eating his own hats (he was later kicked out of his tribe for being a weirdo and writing on the cave walls).
- Danial Boone was reported to wear on his head the small furry animals he had killed that day (this kept both hands free). In the summer this kept the sun off his head, in the winter the fur kept him warm. He would then cook and eat at least some of those animals in the evening. A reporter from England saw this and thought he had eaten his hat.
- Jeromey "El Dufus" Skatebro known as the most uncoordinated skateboarder in the northern hemisphere had his hat drop in front of his face causing him to do a face plant which drove his hat into his mouth. The U-tube video of this is great.
Hats are great to eat for fun.
- In July of 2017, Colonel_Angus, well-known member of the Vinyl Me, Please forum, guessed with unparalleled certainty that the ROTM for August of 2017 would be Fever to Tell by Yeah Yeah Yeahs. He was so confident that he said that if FTT were not the ROTM, he would eat his hat. VMP Staff Member, thestorfer, noted that he would "hold him to it." As of July 13, 2017, it appears that Colonel_Angus will be having Hat Soup.
Hats have much essential Omega-3 hatty acids- in growing children this is essential. However, many hats have an extremely large saturated hat level.Experts therefore have concluded that the more easily saturated hats -like woolly hats- should be consumed as a special treat only. This being said, other hats- like berets and top hats- are generally regarded as perfectly balanced. Try the new range of vitamin supplements available from Poland and Harlet, which provide essential Omega-3 hatty acids. Also, woolshops is now opening a new range of Hat meat - this one doesn't have cyanide!! (No guarantee.)
