TODAY’S NATIONAL DAY, 10/6/20 – MAD HATTER DAY!

Teaparty Mad Hatter“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?”

You’d see it clearly if you knew it was

NATIONAL MAD HATTER DAY!

Today we celebrate Lewis Carroll’s most outrageous character from “Through The Looking Glass; Alice in Wonderland,” The Hatter. He’d love to hat your head, it’s said, or share a spot of tea, you see. The Hatter spouted all manner of nonsensical things and was quite mad, which was okay by Alice, who assured him that “all the best people are.”

There was more than a grain of truth to the Mad Hatter, since hat makers of old routinely went mad because they used mercury to shape and block felt, the material used for their hats. Breathe mercury fumes for long enough and you’re seeing Cheshire Cats invisible except for their grins. How else can tricorner hats be explained?
