The UC Hat
The first reader who can identify it and contact us here at UC wins... umm, first prize.
Whether it actually should be called a hat is perhaps debatable, but I came across it accidentally when looking for something else. I'm unclear why there should be a free-use .gif file of a Kuban Cossack hat/shopka on the net when I can't find data that strike me as fairly basic. But it is nice to know it's there.
Prize... umm... OK, I am putting the UC Public Relations Dept. to work on this task!
I hate to be the one to tell you, but there must be a giant Neo-cossack conspiracy going on, Charles. These Cossacks are e-ve-ry-whe-re, it is a real invasion.Une vraie peste! and they're using subliminal messages...the next thing you know, you'll be teaching economics with one of these funny hats on ;-) NV
You should not reveal conspiracy secrets on this blog. Eevn though I did post the Homeland Pledge to allay Michael Chertoff's suspicions, I can't guarantee NSA doesn't monitor this (or maybe EPA, looking for Siberian Koala poachers).
Regardless, your point is well taken. This hat style, or one similar, should become the official hat of the world economists' conspiracy.
I'll make my students wear them, for a start.
