    I heard this on the news a few days ago, and really thought nothing of it. It was a stupid hat, IMO a lame ass attempt to gather some of the attention of the hordes of media who were there to televise the event. (You know, THAT wedding, between some guy and his rediculously hot bird.)

    However.

    Because of the negative press she recieved about the stupid hat, Princess Beatice (daughter of Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of... York?) has put the hat on eBay, and the proceeds will go to charity. (Probably her cash strapped mother? I kid I kid. It's supposed to be 'The Little Bee initiative', which is Unicef and Children in Crisis apparently?)

    Anyway, here's the link.

    Princess Beatrice Royal Wedding Hat by Philip Treacy | eBay UK

    Bear in mind its been going for a few days now, and as of this post, still has 9 days to go... and it has a whopping 1 bid.

    1.

    And apparently it's the UK businessman Duncan Banatine sho put that bid in. LOL and LOL. I'm putting this auction on my watch list for sure.

    They both wore ugly hats...I couldn't believe it when I saw them wearing those..figured they did it as a "little revenge" since their mother couldn't attend. Next wedding, I doubt they'll be asked to attend. :lol 

    Yeah, keep us posted on the final bid :)

    I heard that when you wear that hat, you can hear the thoughts of people around you, but all the thoughts are conveyed in Latin.


    I wonder what stat bonuses that hat gives, must be pretty good because noone would wear it otherwise.

    It also gives +D6 ugly, but it didn't count because she's already maxed.

    Someone should cut a hole in it and get a bj through it like it was a pizza.

    Wow. I love that they have some of the photoshopped images people have made right on the auction page.

    I'm sorry....but those fugly hats look nothing like the headdress or whatever the girls wore in Cinderella....... in fact, what was in the cartoon is much more tasteful IMO.

    Judging by it's shape, I would think you could hear the call of Cthulhu as well.
