Or Mad Hatter? The post title comes from O Docker, who uses fancy-shmancy lingo that I have to look up most of the time.
O Docker maintains that my Disneyland fedora would have looked better on Peppi's head and has challenged me to post a picture with Peppi in the fedora (which he provided) and throw it open to a vote. Actually, it's more of an Alpine or Tyrolean hat, but I'll not split feathers.
So here is the "O Dock-tored" pic showing the hat on Peppi:

Anyway, if anyone bothers to read this blog, let us know your opinion.
Here's your chance to express your "sartorial correctness" opinion on who should have been wearing the fedora. Here at Sweet Bluesette, we wear the hats, you decide.
Update February 12: Since this poll's script messed up the color scheme on the blog, I've decided to close it and concede defeat to Peppi. Here is the final result:
A majority agrees with O Docker. Peppi would have looked better in my hat. (Sigh).
Thanks for voting!
Until next, sweet sailing.
