Features are likely to be a bit thin around here for the next couple of days due to deadlines, though the Fresh Links will continue to be updated. In the side bar you can look forward to reading random art news stories and reviews, mixed with such treasures as Cabela’s Bridger Mountain Man Coyote Fur Hat [pictured above]. As if discovering there’s a market for the heaviest fox hats in the world weren’t weird enough, the product reviews are almost predictably even stranger. Says one testimonial,
My grandma always wore possum pants when I was a kid and I wanted to continue in the same tradition….It has kept me as warm as any gutted mammal can during the harsh winters here in old Wisconsin. I do have to be careful not to wear it when my dogs are around since it makes them a little jittery especially when my boyfriend likes to make it “growl” and “bark” at them, sending them into a fighting frenzy. They once ripped it from my head and would you believe the coyote hat put up a good fight against my two dogs. Lucky for the coyote he can’t bleed anymore now that he is gutted and made into a hat.
If you are looking for a hat that not only keeps you warm but brings the spirit of Christmas into the hearts of all, than this is the hat for you!”
Clearly yule tide greetings could not be warmer now that you can receive and give them with a fox on your head. A trend in the making to be sure. Link via Borna.
