One Derby Hat to Rule Them All
It all began with the forging of the Great Hats. Three were given to the Elves; immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings. Seven, to the Dwarf Lords, great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls. And nine, nine hats were gifted to the race of Men, who above all else desire power. For within these hats was bound the strength and the will to govern over each race. But they were all of them deceived, for another hat was made. In the land of Mordor, in the fires of Mount Doom, the Dark Lord Sauron forged in secret, a master hat, to control all others. And into this hat he poured all his cruelty, his malice and his will to dominate all life. One hat to rule them all.
Some say Cyndi Lauper’s topper was tops at the Derby, but for us, it’s all about this enormous monstrosity.
