Today’s Hat Fact

Hartford York Hats & Accessories - Laguiole Corkscrew - Le SommelierFrom Mental Floss comes the answer to that burning question:

How do midshipmen find their hats after they toss them at graduation?

Quick answer – they don’t. (But not because they can’t.) Apparently, it’s become tradition that “all the children from the audience are released onto the grounds after the hat toss, where they swarm over the ground to try to grab a memento of one of their new military heroes.”

Gosh, I’m glad I finally found that – uncork and let the party begin!

Thanks for reading,
