The last week has been a little crazy and just a tad seditious, so I totally understand if you missed out on the beginning of racially ambiguous, cool-dick having, ISIS video critic/comedian Joe Mande's "The Week of Hats" extravaganza on the popular social media application instagram.
What started as rebuttal to Seth Rogen's pottery (I originally typed "What started as rebuttal to Seth Rogen's pandemic pottery" nice alliteration, yes, but accurate, no; I scrolled far enough back to see Seth was making ashtrays in at least 2019)...
...has since evolved into Joe Mande's hand-stitched way to create some iconic ironic laughs for a very specific audience and raise money for charity.
During these [everybody's favorite word] uncertain times there is more division than the fourth grade's curriculum. Like Dan Rather says on twitter, while pushing his latest book, we need to find what unites us. I cannot think of anything better to do just that than the leader and founder of Antifa, Joe Mande, selling hand-stitched hats honoring ethnic foods and ending guerrilla leaders.
Unfortunately, I have size 8 cabeza, so none of these adjustable works of art would fit my head. I figured the next best thing I could do is bring awareness to this hilarious cause with my incredibly popular blog.
Monday's hats proceeds are going towards SELAH Neighborhood Homeless Coalition.
Tuesday's hats pay homage to the not so great state of Missouri. All proceeds of these lids will be donated to the Global Hunger Project.
The money that Wednesday's West Valderrama and University of Seppuku hats raise will be donated to Oceana.
The attention to detail in the M in Valderrama is anything but a joke.
Being the hashtag good guy that I am, I forwarded Joe's IG story to my future co-worker and West Virginia native, Nick Turani (of Barstool Sports dot com) in hopes that he could give Almost Wilmer, West Virginia a proper home.
All hats are still up for auction HERE on ebay. If you were to purchase one of these hats under your own volition and organically bring that to my attention it definitely would NOT make for a great follow up blog.
Be sure to follow @JoeMande on instagram to see what Thursday and Friday have in store for the Week of Hats. U! S! A! U! S! A! U! S! A!
It's sort of weird that my last two blogs have turned into promotion for others, but I guarantee you I am not seeing a cent from either and that they did not reach out to me for a sponsored post. Maybe all those years of watching Mad Men are paying off? I'm just a fucking ad guy, bro.
