Do you hear that? It’s the sound of an adult crying over nothing. So yes, the following is exceedingly superficial, but that’s sort of the point.

Lee Seigel just penned one of the most asinine editorials I’ve read in quite some time. The topic? Baseball caps. And I don’t even wear baseball caps!

In particular, note the last four paragraphs. Ugh…

    I like baseball caps.

    A female friend once told me that a grown man shouldn’t wear a baseball cap.

    In my own very adult-like manner, I told her to piss off.

    Personally, I think baseball caps are merely a cheap, readily-available, and not-very-good-looking way of keeping hair out of one’s face. But then, my emotional well-being (unlike Mr. Seigel’s apparently) is not so fragile as to be damaged because someone else is wearing one in my vicinity.

    Still, isn’t it wonderful for him that his world is going so well that he has nothing more substantative to worry about!

    “When I see someone wearing a baseball cap in a movie theater, I want them to bring back the guillotine.”

    Hmmmmm, that sounds a little like suggesting journalists should be turned over to the terrorists.

    I think you should ban Lee Seigel.

    What a life to be so annoyed by something so meaningless.

    Was this guy not hugged enough as a child?

    I wish I could get paid to write articles that inane.

    I think he attributes to much significance to why grown men wear them.

    Toupee or Cap? Cap wins

    For the love of God, what is this guy’s next complaint column going to be- baby rattles?

    I think MacFresh hit the nail on the head:
    Mr. Siegel is truly a master of misunderstanding and being appalled by trends 10 years after they have taken root.

    I can’t wait for his time late article on the bothersome hula-hoop or that dad-burned rap music that seems to be catching on.

    I don’t think his column was meant to be hilariously funny, but… what do you know, I’m sitting here laughing. Ok, fine, it’s more like chuckling now, but I was laughing. I wear a baseball cap now and then, but honestly, I think it looks terrible on me. The reason I wear it is purely utilitarian — it keeps my hair out of my eyes and it isn’t as fussy as a bandana.

    One of the funniest lines on TV — The Wire, the bald white cop to juvenile black gangsta — “Hey, I like your cap. Do you know where I can get one like that, with the bill on the side? I’ve look all over, but can’t find one.”

    I loved reading this article and all the comments; it was hilarious. I do agree that’s a pretty banal topic, but you have to admit, it’s kind of funny. Besides, whether you like them or not, baseball caps are pretty popular. And as long as they are, companies will sell them and will pay to have articles written about them. Personally, I look weird in a baseball cap, but I know plenty of people who look just fine.
