Beatrice Hat Bash Fever!

Everyone's in on the joke about Princess Beatrice's hat. Yay! Let the barbs fly, dahling!  Here's a gem from "Princess Beatrice's Hat Totally Looks Like the Flying Spaghetti Monster". 

Then there's this genius of a Tumblr site, People Wearing Beatrice's Hat.

And, naturally, the hat has its own damn Twitter account. Perfect tone: proper, well-mannered and snooty as hell! Recent posts include: "There they go - onto the balcony. Stealing my limelight," and, "Thank you darling. And I adore.. whatever that thing is you're wearing." 

Personally, the hat reminds me of the female reproductive system. Sorry, Bea. Just sayin'. 

Many thanks to Princess Beatrice and Philip Treacy. Laughter is, indeed, the best medicine.
