Political correctness devours yet another college, fighting over mini-sombreros

cat-wearing-sombreroOn Saturday, two members of Bowdoin College’s student government will face impeachment proceedings. What heinous transgression did they commit? Theft, plagiarism, sexual assault?

Nope. They attended a party where some guests wore tiny sombreros.

    You know what they say about guys who wear tiny sombreros?

    • Exile1981

      You know if they had put a tiny sombrero on a statue of Jesus… that would be art.

    • Can I wear a sombrero in Mexico?

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Millions of tourists do every year!

        • The locals never do. This is the way you identify yourself as a foreigner in Mexico. It’s accepted practice for foreigners.

            Hence the tourist descriptor.
            The very rural subsistence farmers still wear them, but they are usually making their own and they really don’t look a whole lot like you would think a traditional sombrero looks.

            As a general policy, I do not join clubs which require members to wear funny hats. 😉

      It’s the zika sombrero.

    The cat looks as if he swallowed the worm as a chaser to the canary.

      OT: Yeah. Great photo and I’m not generally a cat person. (No offense to Pip.)

      the bartender says ” we don’t get too many cats in here ” , cat says ” at these prices you won’t see any more ” .

    Point and laugh.

    But an hijab is “just a piece of cloth.”

    • Justin St.Denis

      But a hijab with a tiny pig printed motif is racist. Go figure…

      • Tom Forsythe

        Stop giving me ideas!

  • Tom Forsythe

    It’s decided. I shall wear either a sombrero or a full Indian headdress to the next hijab event.

    I was in a bar years ago where they played a trick on people around 10:00 pm when the booze was flowing and you were just feeling drunk .
    They sent out a midget from the kitchen with one of these hate that had the lower brim trough filled with nacho chips while the middle cone section was shorter and concave to hold a bowl of salsa to dip them in .
    I was at the bar leaning on my left elbow and having a beer as I scanned
    entrance watching for the people I was to meet on St. Patrick’s day . Out of my right eye I saw this sombrero floating by me and I looked down to see the nacho’s and bowl of salsa , it was a very large one and I could see the guy wearing it and though it was a stunt using a wheeled cart .
    Then I saw the Green 2 piece suit with a man in it . Time to stop drinking was the thing on my mind but my watch said I wasn’t that drunk yet.

    Wow, he came out of the kitchen every 40 minutes of so and walked the same path to exit the other doors to the kitchen next to the bar , it was like some European town square Clock with figure that come out and bang the bells to go back in as the doors re-open but I was almost drunk for the midget show.

    Reminds me of that old stage show joke by the comic where he says that
    a wife tells her husband that the man next to her has a cock hanging out of his pants ……..the husband says ” awe ….what’s new , you seen one you seen them all” , wife says “yeah , but this ones eating my popcorn ” .
