On Why You Can't Dress A Form In A Hat

Boss to co-worker:

Dress this form in something not preppy.

So, co-worker and I go around picking out surfer dude type clothes. We pick out a hat, a five panel OBEY hat that is popular and selling well.

Boss:

Uh. I know this is going to sound ridiculous, but we can't put a hat on the form because corporate says it's too feminine and they don't want any hats on the male forms because they don't want to spread that type of image.

Me:

What? What does that mean? I sincerely hope you are joking.

Boss:

I'm not. I know. (long pause) It's really stupid.
