Jester's Pantleg Cap

"Fools as we were in motley, all jangling and absurd"
-- The Man Who Was Thursday, Author's Note by G.K. Chesterton

Fools we are! But nothing is more foolish than being unable to laugh, and the Court Jester has always been a healthy remedy to Serious Royal Business. A jester needs a good head on his shoulders, else he might lose it altogether (or at least get a stern beating) -- making fun of the king is a high risk sort of job. Here at Pantleg Hat, we've got our own source of comic relief. This guy:


The Jester's Pantleg Cap lends a lighthearted air to the most dignified of expressions, and quickly sends the wearer into roiling hysterics. The audience cannot help but follow suit, I assure you. Haha -- look at him. Look at his face, hee, hoo, hoo! See how he capers about. Look at that floppy hat, is he some kinda puppy? No, no, just a fool. A fool for Pantleg Hats!

Traditionally the jester wore a three-cornered cap with bells on, but we've got no need for that kind of jingly jangly nonsense. >_< This is Serious Business. Now please excuse me; I have to whip my fool.


this is the place where
I was going to put a
picture of my father,
looking hatless and
unamused...
but he found that
unamusing
