The hat challenge

Gareth looking magic in a fez

Remember that splendid fez that I wore for the “How I made this website better with a Big Red Fez” post back in January 2006?

Well this weekend I’m saying goodbye to it and passing it on to bigger and better things than sitting atop my head for comedy blog posts.

Within the next few days my big red fez (kindly gifted to me a few years ago by Tony Hodges, not to be confused with Terry Hedges) will be briefly reunited with to Tony en route to Matt Rumblelow for his Hat Challenge™. He’s collecting hats for charity, CLIC Sargent to be exact.

Feel free to donate. Money or hats welcome, I assume.

  2. Hi thanks for your help, the fez looks absolutely brilliant and this post will help me out a lot no doubt, so cheers!!! 😀 I shall make sure to take great care with it.

    By the way sorry to pick holes as you’ve gone to so much effort but would you mind changing my name to Matt Rumbelow instead of Michael (I imagine it’s easy enough to get stuff lost in translation).

    cheers again
    aka the Hatman

  3. Sorry about getting your name wrong Matt.

    I’ve corrected it now, and also converted your txt spk to proper English grammar. I would say that it’s simply so that others can read it better, but actually it’s because text-speak bugs the hell out of me, even on mobile phones. a) I hope you don’t mind, and b) it’s my blog! 🙂
