Default Hat Day! Calling all Mad Hatters!

Kangaroo Joe, liked by all, will have a birthday in the next week. As a mark of respect, the forum will have a remembrance day on his birthday, May 8th.

However for those of you who knew KJ, he was one of the funniest and liveliest members this place ever had, so lets make this a day to celebrate his life rather than be melancohly about things! Therefore in the vein of the big man himself, the 8th will be Hat Day! (hats were one of KJ's 'specialities'!) If you want to join in simply change your avatar to a picture of you sporting your best/funniest hat!

Post up pictures of yourself with your best hat on in this thread and let the mirth begin and beer run (well, better be metaphorical beer)! Prizes will be given out to the best hats!

Cheers,

--42

Well... I was going to post in this topic with a big fat "NOOOOO!!!!", as I can't find my chicken hat that I had planned to enter into this comp (or whatever it is), but it seems that by looking for my lost chicken hat, I have actually found something important to my soul that I lost ages ago! Can any of you guess what it is?

It's my old 3rd edition Tau codex!

This was the first Warhammer 40k codex, well, hell, the first Warhammer 40k product I've EVER bought. It was before I knew any of the rules for 40k. I only knew that my friends and I were starting 40k, and that I liked Tau. I was simply amazed by the coolness involved with the old thing. I flipped through it immediately to the Troops section of the book (well, I knew enough to know they were the bulk of the army), and I didn't know what the hell any of the stats stood for except the most obvious ones (S=Strength, T=Toughness, etc), but I didn't care. It was just frickin' awesome!

It's inspired my 40k spirit again.................. I may just get serious with Tau again...............

Hell, I may even wear the codex as a hat for this. Unless I find my chicken hat.... Then I'll just have the codex in the pic.

I spent a year and a half reading here before I joined, and you couldn't do that without at least knowing of KJ.

I couldn't find any pictures or hats that would do the occasion justice, but I had to do something.

Here it is (see attached picture). Those science buffs/nerds/science majors will know that it's read "KJ hat." It's my tribute to KJ.
TB

++EDIT++ I've attached a picture of me wearing a hat, well sort of. I figure the humor is a good tribute to KJ
