Bin Laden Dead? Obama Birth Certificate? Donald Trump Trumped? Forget It: The Royal Wedding is Where It’s At
The biggest atrocity in headlines today is not Donald’s running mouth or President Obama’s birth certificate

Hats are something Americans don’t really understand to begin with. We wear them mostly to sporting events; even our fanciest millinery is reserved for the Kentucky Derby. But over in the UK, hats are the norm.
That still doesn’t explain how we’re all supposed to understand the cream-colored, vertical bow worn by Princess Beatrice, daughter of Andrew and Sarah, the Duke and Duchess of York. (Can you imagine sitting behind that thing in Westminster Abbey?) And so we did what we always do: we turned it into an Internet joke.
For starters, the hat got its own Facebook page. So far, “Princess Beatrice’s ridiculous Royal Wedding hat” (capitalization theirs, not mine) is “liked” by
123,927 130,624 people. That’s roughly 36,000 more than Aretha Franklin’s Inauguration Hat!
Feeling creative? Check out these sites where folks can Photoshop the hat into other contexts: www.princessbeatriceshat.com (we like “Frankly, Beatrice, I don't give a damn”) and www.princessbeatriceandherhat.tumblr.com.
