Morning Discussion

I blame the baseball cap. The baseball cap is responsible for the decline of civilisation as we know it. Can you imagine a young hooligan wearing a bowler hat tipping over your bins, yelling at your nan and throwing a brick through your window? Of course not!

No, this young bowler-hatted ruffian would attempt to pick your pocket in an inept manner, then throw his hands up and say "It's a fair cop!" when caught. Carted off to an orphanage, he would of course flee following an incident sparked by complaints over the size of meal portions, but ultimately would end up living with a middle-class family, enjoying big dinners every night. And would never so much as consider torching your granddad's shed housing his collection of antique taxidermied badgers.

Thank you very much, baseball caps.
