Pope hats anyone?

I did not make this up. (I was planning to write about the discovery of the fossil of a 14 million year old North American honeybee and how this changes everything I have thought and expounded about honeybees in the continent of my birth. But that will have to wait.)
I seriously doubt I could have made this up. Though I have been known to sport - very fetchingly - a tea cozy/miter for ceremonial occasions. Occasions for which one might ask, but probably did not, WHAT to wear to see the Pope? And other occasions as well.
My daughter sent me this from Craigslist. God knows how she found it.

Because of this terrible economy, I'm having to shut down my business. I have OVER 1300 Pope hats (replicas) that I REALLY need to get rid of. The pope hats came from China and are a little too small for most adult heads and are also irritating to the skin, so you would need to have long hair or wear a smaller hat underneath (just like the REAL POPE). Dogs do not like to wear these pope hats, but maybe a large cat or maybe a nice dog would wear one. My dogs will not but they are not very nice and always hate being dressed up like for Halloween when we tried to dress them up like batman but they became very very agitated and bit a neighbors kid. I will lock the dogs up when you come get all of these pope hats. My wife is a devout catholic and she finds the presence of all of these pope hats all over the house to be blasphemous. I have pope hats in every closet, pope hats under the sing, pope hats full of other pope hats. She will not stop talking to me about getting rid of the pope hats and has started lighting candles all over the house for my soul but these pope hats are extremely flammable so its a problem in my house (there are pope hats everywhere) I payed 10x what I'm asking for when I bought these pope hats. I still think there is a market for them maybe when the economy turns around. Act NOW! Don't miss this great deal! I have 1,325 total (I counted this morning). 3 of them have some dog bites and one of them is burnt to a crisp, but you can take that one or leave it. Bring 2-3 strong friends.

Now there is a guy with a Unique Selling Proposition. I don't know exactly what it is, but it is unique.
