Re: "Hats" discussion

my first thought - the rule of hats.

the first rule of hats - any hat encountered must be worn - even if you are already wearing another hat.

Re: "Classic" Discussion

Also, this is a forum based on a comic; one tends to find humour here. Some person thought it was humorous to quote a classic song. Some people thought it was humorous to continue the "discussion". It hardly ruined the song. i think the rant was for the person who made a snarky comment on...
