Sure it is. Of course.

A dwarf planet.
I don't care what type of planet people want to call it but whenever ignorant window lickers say it's not a planet I just want to fly them out to the holy iceball, make them wet their genitals and stick them to the surface then fly back home leaving them there stuck to that winter wonderland in planetary form.

It's hard to find a good hat these days. I went to a fancy clothing store in town and asked for a hat. At first they laughed and then they came with stupid baseball caps and those things that homeless people and hipsters tend to wear. It's outrageous.

Hey, at least you can wear a hat. Whenever I try wearing a hat, people always tell me I look weird.

You should ignore them. They're just jealous.

Has anybody noticed that many of the greatest entertainers of the 20th century were jews?
Yes, I think half of Hollywood Movie wedding portrayals are in some way Jewish.  Or that there is always a Jewish character who'd do something Jewish in a movie or TV series.

I think it was Family Guy or SouthPark who had a line that said, "C'mon Jews!  Let's show these Scientologists who really owns Hollywood!"

Ugh, baseball caps. But Tom and Jerry is OK.
We have this in your size.  Perfect for making the "right" impression:
Now that's what I'm talking about. Pity I threw up in my pimp hat.
Pimp hats are the perfect receptacles for vomit.

You're either *very* young or very sheltered.  ;D
I'm 18 springs young. Does that pardon me  :)

Oh, recently someone gave me a straw hat. Still got to wear that one.

The Pope has an infallible choice of hats. I like it.
If you think it is ugly and he says it looks great, you have to believe it looks great or you will go to hell.

But saying the Pope's hats are ugly is indeed as close to heresy as one could possibly get  ;D

If you like red, you could go for a galero:



Apologies for nitpicking, but the first one is a capello romano, not a galero.

I have known [Catholic] priests who wear one. For those lacking episcopal dignity, it does come in black.

But for his camauro (kamylaukion), I would agree with you:
Somehow that one reminds me of Santa Claus.
Given Santa's previous avatāra, his red hat was probably inspired by the camauro.

St. Nicholas would never allow himself to be Latinised, now would he?  :-\

St. Nicholas and Santa Claus (St. Claus??) are two separate and distinct characters--one real, the other a coke head.

Indeed, they are visibly not the same type of headdress.

Last time I checked, capello meant 'hair' in Italian.

I guess if you are born with German Haar, you must put the Roman capello on top.  ???

What did you think with all that white powder at the North Pole?
