So if you haven't seen the pic of Tom Brady at the Kentucky Derby, here you go:

I mean, when you're filthy rich and more successful than anyone else has ever been at your chosen career, I guess you can wear whatever the heck you feel like, but my question is why? Why do rich people want to wear silly hats? I mean, they used to be fashionable, but then so did leisure suits and platform shoes, and you don't see too many rich people trying to bring those abominations back. There's little practicality in a hat like this, especially considering it would be ruined in the rain, with no easy way to stick it in a pocket to protect it.

If I were ever a really rich guy, I would be like Mark Cuban who wears a plain T-shirt and shorts literally everywhere he is not contractually obligated to wear a suit.

Anyhow, take the Quiz and come back and tell us how you did and why you think some rich people like to wear silly hats.

Don't forget the Easy Quiz!

Good luck, and let me know if you have any issues with the Quiz.

Also, this isn't the first time Tom Brady has been weird at a horse race. Here he is at the 2019 Kentucky Derby looking like James O'Keefe's pimp costume:

You know, after seeing what he looked like at the 2014 Kentucky Derby, I guess the hats are an improvement.

By my place in Houston there are three Starbucks right next to each other. The third one is in the Barnes and Noble behind the one on the left.

Hats are great, especially at higher altitudes where the sun turns bald/shaved heads into giant cancer growths.  I want to increase my hat inventory, as at the moment all I have is a fedora, a bowler, a top hat, an 1858 regulation hat, an 1889 regulation hat, my college fraternity beret, a monmouth cap, a nice winter wool winter hat, a night cap, a smoking cap, and three baseball caps and a few knit winter caps.

Where exactly does one wear a top hat nowadays without seeming at the least pretentious and at most like a Roger Stone cosplayer?

Isn't the POINT of attending the Derby to dress up in funny-looking anachronistic costumes and hanging out with other rich douches?

Here's an issue I haven't experienced before: If I do the Hard Quiz first, I cannot go back to the intro screen and take the Easy Quiz, it only lets me see my (abysmal) Hard Quiz results.

I've got a trucker hat from "F1rst Choice Farm & Lawn" that wouldn't look out of place anywhere around here outside of church.

Since apparently we're just rattling off the hats we own:
Driving cap, news boy cap cap, Red Sox baseball cap, Bruins baseball cap, a SC state flag baseball cap, straw cowboy hat (for yard work), grey fedora, green fedora, straw fedora with stingy brim, straw fedora with wide brim, felt cowboy hat, a red white and blue houndstooth fedora, a pith helmet and a top hat (those last two are for Halloween).  Plus a collection of bandannas that I wear for working out and a couple other baseball caps I can't remember.
