Check this out!

This is just too funny. I have been looking for a good black top hat to go with Seth's vampire costume I'm making him this year for Halloween and this ebay listing was just too funny to me. Most people will show one, maybe two pictures of the item and this wonderful person posed with his top hat 11 times! Some with a gun, some with a pool stick, some with a beer, one with a girl. It's just too good. http://cgi.ebay.com/CUSTOM-QUALITY-BLACK-LEATHER-TOP-HAT-MODERN-BEAVER-SILK_W0QQitemZ120161024212QQihZ002QQcategoryZ105399QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem I think this one's my favorite!

A few minutes later: I just found the same guy in almost all the same poses with a white hat just like this one. He's so cool! Here's the link to the white top hat pictures too http://cgi.ebay.com/CUSTOM-QUALITY-WHITE-LEATHER-TOP-HAT-MODERN-BEAVER-SILK_W0QQitemZ120163141951QQihZ002QQcategoryZ105399QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Okay now this is getting ridiculous. I just found him again on a different one. It's a girl posed a bunch of times in a top at and one of her last pictures is of her sitting on his lap and him wearing a big sombrero. He must be the top hat pimp.

I'm pretty sure that's the first eBay listing I've ever seen that has a soundtrack. I like how he shows all the ways that a top hat can be used... for sitting with a gun... playing billiards. At least four different ways! I'm glad there's also an illustration of a man in a top hat, in case the many photos didn't do the trick. Excellent.

Nice. I don't really know how to respond to this, but I feel obligated to express my head-scratching confusion. Appearantly there is some sort of top hat wearing sub-culture that I've been blind to all these years. I keep going back and forth between intrigue and repulsion, but I think repulsion is winning.

Um, can something really be considered "new" after all that? Oh, wait, I remember now, they'll make you a custom one. Wow. You cannot pass this up. If Seth gets anything less, it just won't be Halloween.

i can't stop giggling. and yet i feel guilty cuz the fella is in a wheelchair. but maybe he did that for pity purchases - we all know that top hat aficionados have soft spots for the handicapped. he just knew he'd get more orders that way. the swindler! now i don't feel so guilty.
