A newspaper hat

Newspaper pirates / Lake Chrisann / Sept. 2006

The newspaper used to be the perfect material to make a great hat (and sword). I say "used to" because it really doesn't work anymore. When they shrunk the size of the newspaper (due to the increased costs of paper, they said) I think the bigwigs at the papers neglected to take into account the fact that the reduced size would no longer have the right dimensions to make a hat that fit (even little-pirate-sized heads). Did they, I wonder, consider the effect it would have on our cultural and artistic heritage?
