My new favorite hat is Bradwood Landing hat. It came in the bag of SWAG that I got once when I visited the office. The only thing I don't like about the hat is that it is colored with the official Knappa Colors, Camouflage.

The thing I like about is is that it was made in the USA and it fits better than any other hat I have. Yes, I do think that ball caps are vulgar, but as my hair thins I can feel mist on my head and I can get sun burned on a cloudy day.

Anyway, my wife and I were sitting around the camp fire the other day. I was wearing my cap and she said to me, "Wear your hat like a douche bag!" I immediately knew exactly what she was talking about so I put it on backwards. I transformed myself into a douche bag. I needed on explanation. I knew what she meant.

It seems to me that if douche bags don't like the brim of their hats they should wear beanies.

There must be some irony in the fact that wearing a cap backwards would keep one from getting a red neck.

While i do agree in general, there's occasion to wear it backwards. If you are working on something and the brim gets in the way. Or if you are grilling or burning something, the smoke gets up under the brim. Wearing a hat sideways though, is completely out of the question. Then you go from being a mere douche to being a walking pop-up target and fair game for anybody with one in the chamber.

A person who wears their hat backwards is simply a redneck don't-wanna-be.

Rich, Irony in deed! Too funny.

Darev, get a beanie.

Anon, but you can still tell they are because of the wife beater t-shirt.

g, oh no my friend. I got this straight from Knappa residents. They weren't talking school colors, they were talking the Knappa standard uniform.

You hit the nail on the head. Swing in to the Knappa market on any given day and you can guarantee someone will have camo on.

Joni, Thanks Darlin!

g, told you so...

Dalia, it will take time, but you will realize your mother is right more often than not. You know how some people have Gayday, you and I have Douchedar.
