C'mon, relax, sfmccoll. I can remember my mother's friends making fun of each others' hats in the 1930's, when I was a little boy. And black women apparently still wear hats to church, because their funny hats are an occasional point of fun the comic strip Curtis. And the ones the cartoonist draws are sometimes no more amusing that Her Majesty's. As they say, chill.

If you want to talk about silly, then look to the crowns the Queen must wear on state occasions, some of which are so heavy she must practice wearing them so as not to lose her balance or cause them to fall off. Now that's silly!! (And probably painful.)

Diogenes, if more ladies wore hats to public worship or in church buildings, you'd see more like these. Or if you went to the races, you'd see infinitely worse. I think you'd find that Her Majesty (to whom you ignorantly referred as 'Her Highness' in an earlier post) is likely to be one of His Holiness's allies in many things. Stop the cheap shots. I support Catholic Culture because it's Catholic, not narrow-mindedly American.
