Hell Hat Giveaway

You know that expression "when Hell freezes over"? Well, Hell does freeze over. In Hell, Michigan. Of course, I've talked about Hell, Michigan several times on here before. So if you've been reading this blog for awhile, you know all about it.

A few weeks ago I received a desperate and sad text from my friend Jesse, telling me that he lost "Hell Hat" to the "mighty Pacific." Jesse bought Hell Hat when he lived in Michigan and came along on our trip last fall. But he lives in Utah now, far away from Hell (or is it? {kidding [or am I?]}), so I did what any friend would do, and drove to Hell and back to get him a replacement: Hell Hat II, as seen below.

so happy together

And as long as I was already in Hell, I spent another $6.66 to buy a Hell Hat for one of you! Imagine the looks on your friend's faces when they read your hat! First they'll be offended at the word Hell, then a smirk of understanding will cross their faces as they continue reading. You will for sure be the most popular person in your group of friends. For sure. It's also a great gift idea! What brother wouldn't love such a hat? And brothers are impossible to shop for. Impossible. (Sorry, I lost my train of thought - it's my brother's birthday this week.)

So what do you have to do to win your own Hell Hat? Well, I'd love it if you'd "follow" this blog, but honestly, if you don't want to you, you don't have to. Secondly, you have to answer this road trip themed "would you rather" question:

Would you rather:

Go on a week long road trip with a stranger who it turns out (after a day of driving together) you don't really like and who has horrible taste in car music?

OR

Go on a week long road trip with someone you kinda like, but who has B.O. and forgot to bring any clean shirts?

Answer the question to get an entry! You have one week to enter!

I want that hat. I'm assuming you are presuming we are supposed to assume that the questions are from your perspective.. but, if they are in fact questions I should answer from my perspective.. I would say that I'm worried about your bad taste in music and your B.O. and yes a week long road trip sounds like a great idea..

Any music is better than no music on a long road trip just like how no b.o is better than any b.o. I'd take awkward over barfing any day.

Mark said...

A week? An entire week? I hate riding just to Detroit with someone with crappy taste in music. I think after a while I'd get used to the smell, but I couldn't abide seven days of "My Turn on Earth".

My choice means that I wouldn't have to change shirts either!

I'd rather do the first and indeed I did that when I was 20. It was awful, but I survived.

I think, after much deliberation, that I'd have to go with choice #1. I can't handle the smell of B.O.!!!

Ive been thinking about making a comment

Choice one is the obvious one, I mean, I drove home with a friend with stinky feet and I was having a hard time keeping my fruit snacks, chips, crackers, Starburst, Skittles, twizzlers, and Mt Dews down...but then again it could have been that combination.
BO is hard to run from, at least if you don't like the person you can zone them out, or pretend that you are with someone you like or you can ignore the music or you can throw them out of a moving vehicle for immediate relief. If their feet stunk the smell would linger even after they were ejected and you would proabably still have to pick up their stink socks and other belongings, then you would need thhe entire car detailed....BO is WAYYY worse on my scale.... me nose cant handle it
Now did you want my address for that hat? Will it fit in an overnight envelope? I may need that thing soon.

Melanie said...

Bad music is much more tolerable than B.O. in my opinion. My bigger concern is why I haven't told my friend about deodorant and personal hygiene.

Funny story, when I first moved to Provo, I told people I was from Hell, Michigan to see what they would say. So funny. In all seriousness, I'd point to my hand and say, I'm from Hell. :) Us Michiganders think we're funny!

Savd said...

Definitely the shorter trip with bad music...that can be tuned out, but the bad odor is intolerable!

jbeu said...

I want a Hell hat! (BTW, I started blogstalking you at the suggestion of Megan and her Hell stories are great.)

Anywho, I think I would rather go on a roadtrip with a friend who has bad BO - at least I could stick my head out with window all dog-like. Although, I would have to remember to keep my tongue in my mouth. Bad music is just nauseating sometimes.

PS - when you say someone you "kind of like" do you mean a friend who is tolerable or rather someone in whom you have some sort of romantic interest? That would shake things up a bit...

I can tolerate bad music much more than I can B.O. since I would rather not puke.

Christi said...

Definitely the bad music/don't really like. B.O. makes me gag.

I want this hat so bad!

For me, a road trip is all about the people involved and I'd much rather spend time with someone I like. I believe there are two colloquialisms that might apply to this entirely hypothetical situation. "When in Rome,..." and "If you can't beat them join them." Both options provide an immediate benefit in reducing the amount of dirty laundry at the end of the week. Since friendly competition helps the miles pass, why stop at just the shirt? After three days, we'd both smell the same anyway, essentially rendering us equally immune to the other's foul stench. I would imagine that the time savings alone from never having to wait in line are almost incentive enough. So definitely option 2 for me.
Don't bother sending me the hat, I'll just drive by and pick it up. Road trip anyone? I'll drive.

I got myself "A cheap t-shirt from Hell" a few days ago. There is not much there, but it's a pretty nice place...

Definitely the first one. Bad music for a week will be a bad week, but bad BO for a week will scar me for life.

(Curse word) (curse word) How do I always miss/or win your awesome giveaways?! I so want that hat.
