Tilley-Hat Face

Does this evoke:

  • A buck-toothed Mickey Rooney, playing a ridiculous Japanese character in Breakfast at Tiffany’s scenes that are cringe-worthy, 59 years after the fact?
  • A gagged kidnapping victim from a Liam Neeson movie?
  • A Watership Down rabbit with a little button nose?
  • A stereotypical schoolmarm or librarian with pursed lips?

Or does it remind you of someone else altogether?

    It reminds me of Donald Trump. But then, everything reminds me of Donald Trump.

  2. Perhaps the Tilley Hat company would not have gone belly-up if they knew their product could be reconceptualised as a pet, a puppet, or a theatrical stand-in? I must say I was disappointed to learn they are no longer selling their excellent head gear.

      Laurna – Well, I’m not sure. I can see their online store and there’s something about re-opening as of 03 June, observing all COVID-19 protocols. Perhaps rumours of their death have been exaggerated.

    If this is a Balderdash-like question, I pick the “stereotypical schoolmarm or librarian with pursed lips.”

    Is that right?

    • Isabel Gibson says:

      Tom – I think it’s like art: not right or wrong. I can see all those faces but am surprised you didn’t go for the bunny . . .

  4. Tom Watson says:

    I sure thought about it.

    In all the years (30++??) I’ve owned a Tilley Hat I never knew I had a smiley face on my head!!

    One of many life’s little pleasures I have been missing.
