Well, I suppose if you weren't already aware of what kinds of food all the bits of a pig
were liable to be turned into, this poster will be more than happy to educate you.
Internets, I am currently kicking myself, and this is going to take some explaining, so bear with me.
You see, last Friday I was reminded by Anna the Curator via Twitter about the opening of a millinery exhibit at the local museum (which I heartily suggest that you check out yourselves if you happen to be local to Centraliana/are passing through, 'cause it's freakin' great.) So I immediately
Now, that is not what I am kicking myself about. What I am kicking myself about is that--on a podium in the main lobby of the museum--there is a pig made from a water cooler bottle. As Anna explained, it was the museum's entry for a contest that is part of an upcoming town festival (it makes sense in context,) which was pretty cool in and of itself, but the best part about it is how the pig statue was dressed. Why do I say that? Because the pig was dressed as a certain Jedi from a certain series of movies, complete with lightsaber and what has been beautifully described as "emo" hair.
And Internets, I didn't get a picture of it. Granted, I don't think it'll be going anywhere anytime soon, but it still annoys me greatly that I didn't have the wherewithal to snap a picture of Luke Stywalker the first time around.
So since I've been thinking about pigs all weekend long, it's only right that today's post be about pig hats, so that is exactly what we're gonna do, starting with this one:
It's the little bitty ears that really made me fall in love with it. Well, those and the button eyes, obviously.
Now, I'm willing to bet that most of you may be thinking that this post is basically going to be full of crocheted or knitted pig hats, aren't you? Well, you'll be happy to know that you're right, but try this bad boy on for size:
No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. This is, in fact, a pig fascinator. And it's not the only one available in that shop, either. It just happens to be the one I like best, and it's not made out of yarn, so there.
Meanwhile, this one is actually made out of yarn, and rather adorably so. Also, I would think that the temptation to beep the snout of this hat has got to be intensely strong.
And just because I can, here's an Angry Birds green pig hat:
As to whether or not various types of birds are liable to launch themselves at your head while you're wearing said hat, I have no idea. But either way, I'd say the hat is worth the risk.
See you Wednesday!
