Religious things on our heads

Dude I am ABSOLUTELY FASCINATED, as I have mentioned before, with the way religion makes people put things on their heads. (Or shave their heads. Always something with the head.)

It was all I could do not to reach over and touch the black velvety yarmulke of the dude sitting next to me in class today. It looked so soft! And they're so small and cute!

I really think this is why I so adored Ernie's story on the Sesame Street Fairy Tale Album about the fairy princess with tennis shoes and a pancake on her head. Bert was all, fairy princesses don't look like that. They are sparkly with magic wands and Ernie was like, why not? It's *my* story too and I say she has a pancake on her head.

Why not, indeed?
