Project Cubbins: Hat 383 - Sunburned Zebra Bucket Edition

Day 383 / Hat 383: Pink and black zebra-print bucket hat with black lining, black hatband and black sweatband detail. Interior label that reads: "First Kiss." (In that hat? You gotta be kidding me.) Interior fabrication tag reads: "RN#: 90737, Mpo#: A60009, Date Code: 112011, Upper: 100% cotton, Lining: 100% polyester, Zongshan China."

This was one of a quartet of unworn (for Project purposes anyway) lids I discovered while repatriating the MRBOH to Marilyn. As you might suspect, it belongs to her darling daughter Ava who came to visit the office yesterday. (She proudly proclaimed: "I'm seven!" upon arrival.)

This hat reminds me of that joke about what's black and white and red all over? A zebra with a sunburn! It is, of course, much funnier when asked aloud as the homophonic red/read pun allows the other answer to be "a newspaper."

The hat-tip to Ava for the loan of her lid!

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 celebrated 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
