The Swiss Army Survival Hat?

March 11, 2009

Blog Guy, I really need some fashion advice!

“I’m invited to a very nice cocktail party. The problem is, I have a deep-rooted fear of getting lost late at night while I look for the valet parking guy, and wandering around for days waiting for rescue. This has happened to six of my friends. Help!”

Statistics show thousands of people each year suffer exactly that fate. This is why I’ve invested my money in the Swiss Army Hat.

Stylish enough for a Paris fashion show, if danger strikes this unique headgear is all business! Six LED lights begin blinking when you hit the panic button. A bicycle bell on your forehead lets you signal rescuers.

There’s more! Steel gears grind a stream of bread crumbs behind you, and if you fall off a cliff or something, large ostrich feathers float you gently to the ground!

That’s all very nice, Bob, but an ostrich can’t fly.

Uh-oh. Um, act now and get a free glow-in-the-dark face reflector?

Be young again!  Join the Oddly Enough blog network!

Get yourself a portable satellite navigation system, add your co-ordinates when you park your car, and take it inside with you to the party. Just follow directions when you leave. Simple.Been there, done that. Good luck!

Gee, That hat reminds me of my dad’s Studebaker after I crashed it into the chicken coop.
