I have been thinking about this for some time.
|This poor young man was discovered at one of The Mistress's Crisco Parties smeared in the stuff and wrapped in tinfoil. Luckily, he'd only been in the oven for five minutes (which hadn't even been pre-heated - Mrs Beeton was spinning in her grave!), so he wasn't too hot and bothered.|
It seems that I haven't been the only one thinking about tin foil hats:
|Ms Scarlet's already got her tin foil thinking cap on, as evidenced above from GoGoDragons|
I'm letting you know this now so that you all have plenty of time to stock up on tin foil and get your thinking caps on (made of tin foil, I hope?). Hopefully, for some of you, three months is enough notice this time? And don't worry about forgetting - I shall be dropping reminders here and there as we approach the compo date.
I haven't decided on a theme yet so I am open to suggestions. Just don't get mardy if I ignore them all and go with something else instead.
And remember: You could win a prize!
A crap one, no doubt.Quiet you! Eros was very pleased with his Teflon baking sheet.
For the curious and anyone new here, you can see the very first Tin Foil Hat Compo Gallery from 2010 here, and last year's here. The winning hat of 2014's compo is pictured below.

* Yes, we're aware that foil is almost never made of tin any more (was it ever?), but people still call it that, so we're going with it.
