Hate polls? Hat polls!

Voting is closed, and the results are in. Some perennial contenders like the mortarboard and the Coolie hat were shown an early exit, and hot newcomers like the budenovka and the shtreimel are making themselves heard. The first round is of the Funny Hat tournament is over, we saw some dominant favorites and some surprising upsets, and now the field is narrowed by half.

Once again, do not vote on your favorite hat, or the cutest hat, or the hat with the photo you like most, or the hat with the funniest name. Vote for the funniest hat. You are helping untold future generations of mankind to know exactly what to wear on their heads when they want a big laugh, and I expect you to take that responsibility seriously.
