Funny Hat Day July 27, 2005 11:16 AM   Subscribe

Some people seem down around here lately. Well, how about a funny hat day? It can really boost morale, I think. A Friday is probably best for this, as momentum will already be building for the weekend.

That's not a hat.

Kidding, really. I too have noticed a downturn in the Metamood. I don't know what the solution is, more flash fun? Boobies links? Vacations all around? Kids to go back to school?

Boobies links?

This idea has possibilities.

MetaFilter - Blue
MetaTalk - Turd Blossom Brown
AskMe - Green
MetaBoobs - Flesh Color? An exotic sort of Olive tone? Chocolate Brown? Pink and Freckled?

If the mood is down, the only clear solution is a dirty limerick contest.

MetaBoobs.com is available.
So is MetaTatas.com, which has a certain ring to it.

Just sayin'.

Funny hats really aren't as funny as they might have seemed.

I've been wearing a funny hat the whole time, I'm pissed off because no one noticed/said anything.

How dare you deny me my right to be morose? You, sir, are the worst human being in the history of the world, and furthermore

To be fair we'd also need to get something like:

MetaBeefcake
MetaJunk
MetaSchlong

Limecat is my desktop wallpaper right now. It has made everyone in my office giggle at least a little bit. Even the crabby ones. I vote for Limecat Hat Day.

I don't know about funny hat day, but today is Walk on Stilts Day and Take a Houseplant for a Walk Day (as well as National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day).

"Take a Houseplant for a Walk Day"?? Do you need a leash?
posted by Ethereal Bligh at 1:42 PM on July 27, 2005


Walking home today, I noticed many people on the street wearing hats, including me... and I was suddenly struck by how large a subset of the hatwearers could quite easily be discerned as derelicts or crazy old ladies.

I'm not sure where I fit in: derelict or crazy old lady.

What I'm saying is "all hats are funny hats!"

anyone attempting to take a houseplant for a walk shouldn't be let out at all.
not even on a leash.

This might be a good time to introduce newer members to Oolong, our Metafilter mascot and pancake-hat wearing bunny. Unfortunately, Oolong is no longer with us, but is in bunny heaven now, but you can read more about him here.

I can't wear a funny hat to Metafilter because, as a rule, I check Metafilter naked (I wear gloves when I visit Metatalk though, ewwww).

There once was a man named Brock
Who had an unusual cock
his curious erection
was bent in a direction

Oh, and next Friday is Hawaiian shirt day. So, you know, if you want to, you can go ahead and wear a Hawaiian shirt and jeans.

Obviously I'm partial to this little number myself:

Someone's gotta have a better Troll hat than this one.

When I was in high school, my friends bought me a beanie for my birthday. I still have the damn hat; whenever I felt socially awkward, I put on the hat and it made me feel cool again. In fact, I once wore it with a suit to a UN speech I attended. That certainly attracted some attention (of course, the suit was an off-white polyester blend, I wore black shoes, white socks, and I'm brown). Come to think of it, I don't know how I made it out of high school alive.

Hmm...according to this, it was a propellor hat.
