Hey Ken et al! The octupus facial attacks are truly unnerving. You know, I read that one scientist postulates that octopi are extraterrestial in origin becsause:
1. Octopi are invertebrates, yet as smart as dogs.
2. Have eyes like cameras in complexity.
3. Are so different from other sea life.

If your head feels strange, that doesn't mean you need a bigger hat. It just means you should stop putting strange things into it. Try blending into the background, going with the wind or the flow.

If you have a WFMU profile, copy and paste the following message onto the comments board: "MY HAT SIZE IS PRIVATE! DO NOT SHARE!"

My grandpa had a larger than normal hat size. Grandma teased him by saying he had a big head with nothing in it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47am N.A.R.D.:

@Brian, there's a European XXL and a US XXL, the US XXL is 3 times the size of the European XXL because Americans naturally have fatter heads

Everytime I encounter web ads from Hat vendors all offer me 12 inches hat. How did the algorithm arrived to that number? I have only favourited the Clearance Carter song and the BBQ one. I don't understand.

I have to wear Magnum hats. Just have to have them. Only thing that fits you know, I'm not bragging, it's just a fact.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51am N.A.R.D.:

Imperial XXL is the same as the European XXL, but it's measured in buttonwidths instead of inches
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52am Sebastian:

Here's a table to convert the hat sizes (I'm not responsible for the way this looks on your computer):
Inches (american): 6 1/2 6 5/8 6 3/4 6 7/8 7 7 1/8 7 1/4 7 3/8 7 1/2 7 5/8 7 3/4 8
