The other day, a friend of mine by the first initial of M posted this link on my Facebook profile, thinking that I would find it interesting. Since I totally did, I'd say that worked out well for the both of us, and I started working on the post for today. And that's when a slight problem arose.
See, I had already touched upon chicken-leg viking-style hats in this post last year. Granted, I merely mentioned their existence and only posted one photo as evidence of said existence, but the fact that chicken-leg hats had already been specifically covered on this blog means it falls under the category of Already Been Done. And as we all know, once something's been done, you have to do something else (this is particularly true if you're a fussy little twerp who insists on trotting out original content with every post in order to keep readers coming back, like me.)
So chicken-leg hats were off the menu. But what about chicken hats? Hmmm...hadn't really done those before. Yeah, there was that one post back in March where I posted one chicken hat, but surely there's a greater variety of those out there than just that one, right?
Needless to say, I did find more chicken hats; enough to share with the class. And in the end, we have M to thank for all this. Thanks, M!
For being a relatively simple hat, this black-and-white one is pretty neat. The description even goes so far as to name the breed of the chicken (Barred Rock, for the curious/linkaphobic.)
Of course, there's nothing quite like having a chicken hat given to you as a gift, as this person will gladly tell you.
So on that note, if any of you would like to give me a chicken hat, let me give you a big honkin' hint as to which one I'd like:
Hey; if I'm going to dream, I'm gonna dream big. Besides, I am fully aware of the fact that the chance of this actually happening is about the same as a three-legged cat's chance of surviving being in a dog kennel: HIGHLY UNLIKELY.
And just to apologize for that mental image...
...Here's a cat wearing a chicken hat. Am I forgiven yet?
So in the end, here's all you need to know about chicken hats; when you wear one that resembles a live chicken, everyone wears one with you.
But if you go with the frozen roaster option, you wear it alone.
See you Friday!
