Hat Association Games

Today I will use my new 1973 Indiana University yearbook to play an installment of Hat Association Game. Here goes.

When I see this:

I think of Miss Mary J Blige:

When I see this:

IndianaU1973016I think of afghan throws and crocheted potholders.

When I see this:

IndianaU1973015I think several things at the same time, but one of them is, “Is he really wearing a floral velvet newsboy cap with a tassle ball on top? That takes juevos.” I believe that Lance Gross proves that hat style can evolve for the better.

And lastly, when I see this:

IndianaU1973017I think of playing poker in what is clearly not a shower cap, but then I am distracted by the chipmunk cheeks of his friend, and I think of Tito Jackson.

And then I think of Tito Jackson in an oversized newsboy cap.

And Tito Jackson in a brown derby.

Which reminds me of the restaurant, the Brown Derby.

Which makes me hungry. So I’m going to head to the kitchen and fry up some free-range eggs. And I know just the hat to wear!

  1. You’ve read If You Give a Pig a Pancake, yes? I think that’s the first, then there is also something about a mouse and a muffin. Heck, you may be the author (using a pseudonym, of course) as you do this association thing so well.

    Oh, the hats.

  2. Oh that fascinator! Awesome. Reminds me of a tattoo I saw on a college student’s calf of a dancing line of breakfast items, toast, bacon, fried egg. All looking jolly, jazz hands and all.

  3. Decades ago, I used to work with the pig/pancake author/illustrator, Felicia Bond, at Austin Public Library. She was a puppeteer back then, but went on to be very well known and loved.
