Say hello to Great Lakes, who was quietly enjoying herself at a certain bar in a certain town deep in the heart of the Midwest.
After a few minor adjustments, she had assembled a very nice looking hat complete with ears and, well, more ears. With grace and dignity, she applied said hat and wistfully picked up her can while gazing off into the distance. This woman means business.
But here’s where things really get interesting. After carefully placing her can back on the bar, she lifted her hat a bit, sat back down on her stool, and stared pensively off into the distance, as if she were … hmmm … thinking about her subjects?
Nefertiti, anyone? Well played, Great Lakes … well played.
UPDATE: Here’s another great photo of Great Lakes, as submitted by Margarita.
Here’s River Rat enjoying a cool refreshing Hamm’s after his hard day of work at The Rail. Yup — we’ve got some fresh meat behind the bar … Cool Whip chose to step down and handed over the venerable reins to this fellow here. What a better way to finish off your shift, then to win a Hamm’s Hat. Is that rewarding or what!? River Rat tweeted (twatted? twitted? who the fuck knows) this pic so you know we’re on board with all the latest kids’ technology ‘n shit.
Instead of subjecting you to the possibility of earworms that will burrow deep into your noggin, forcing you to grab the closest meat thermometer, jam it in your ear, and beat it with a mallet, I present to you River Rat.
A quandry indeed, so I kinda went for a Little Bunny Foo-Foo sorta thang. Note the down-turned ear.
A hip, a hop, a hippity hop …
And there you have it.
And while I’m at it, a big congratulatory congratulations to Bandana and Hot Pockets on their beautiful wedding ceremony (clocked in at under fifteen minutes) and reception (clocked in at … uh … I can’t remember.)
