Project Cubbins: Hat 477 -- Pappy & Harriet's Piglet Editon

Day 477 / Hat 477: Trucker-style cap with brown mesh back and beige foam front with brown screen print on front of an adorable piglet with a tattoo of a winged heart on its left hindquarter that says"PH," all above a scroll-like banner that reads: "Pappy & Harriet's." Additional detail includes brown braided cord where brim meets crown. Interior label reads: "Otto Collection, 32-468, 100% polyester 100% nylon [which makes this hat 200%, apparently], one size fits most, made in China, RN129002."

Stealth-snapped from frequent hat contributor Noelle Carter's desk the very second I returned to the Cube Farm after nearly a month in the field. (I'm sure she'd want it that way so it's hardly stealth in that respect.)

Pappy & Harriet's Pioneertown Palace is a honkytonk barbecue joint out near Joshua Tree National Park in a town called, you guessed it, Pioneertown. I've actually been there once but didn't walk away with a sweet lid like Noelle clearly did.

She also walks away with today's unwitting hat-tip as I get back to the grind here in the Cube Farm.

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
