Project Cubbins: Hat 244 - Sitting Down in a Paper Crown Edition

Day 244 / Hat 244: Red tissue paper crown from one of the Christmas 2013 holiday crackers (the noise-making kind, not the snacking kind). 

Photographed for the Project in the royal chambers of Castle Naughty Pine at approximately 5 a.m. whilst sitting upon the throne. 

Which brings me to this observation: You can't reallly use the word "throne" any more - at least in parts of the world without  honest-to-goodness royalty - without it sounding like a reference to "toilet."

Obviously I didn't take this photo of myself sitting on the can but admit it, that's exactly the mental image that popped into your mind when you read that second paragraph. 

(For the record, if I was going to do a toilet selfie, you can bet your kingdom I'd use the ermine- and sable-lined crapper in the royal water closet as a backdrop.)

PC 243: Stickin' with the Stockinette
PC 242: Poquito Sombrero
PC 241: Major Domo

Q: OK, nice hat -- but what exactly is Project Cubbins, anyway?

A: One man's homage to Dr. Seuss and his second book, "The 500 Hats of Bartholemew Cubbins," which is celebrating the 75th anniversary of its publication in 2013, Project Cubbins is an attempt to document the wearing of a different hat or piece of headgear every day for 500 consecutive days. No do-aheads, no banking of hats, no retroactive entries. PC started on May 27, 2013 with Hat 1
Got hats? If you loan 'em, you'll get e'm back safe and sound!
