Tinfoil Hat Duo Graces San Francisco
|Well, you don't see that every day|
And yet, this duo of men bedecked in tinfoil chapeaux fill the bill. Sadly, your humble narrator cannot tell you what drove these men to venture out in public while outfitted in elaborate headgear reminiscent of the helmets worn by Alexander Nevsky as depicted in Sergei Eisenstien's breathtaking 1938 film of the same name.
The striking gents simply strode away from your bus-bound scribe too quickly for me to do more than hurriedly snap this photo. Alas.
So, your guess remains as good as ours. Do these hats protect the wearer from electromagnetic bombardment? Japanese radiation? Robot pigeons? Mind control? Or, in a nod to Nevsky himself, the modern-day version of the tinfoil Teutonic Knights?
When next we see this duo, we will endeavor to inquire further. Sadly, however, their headgear precludes us from doing so telepathically.
