Frankly Speaking

Ironic trucker hats are not acceptable anymore. Seriously. Stop wearing them. Just go find a metal can, borrow my grandmother's recipe for "hobo stew for the campfire" and use all the ones you have in your closet for fuel. Save the trees. All of you except Judah Friedlander. It's OK that he still wears them. I really can't put my finger on why I'm fine with his rotating selection of headwear normally reserved for frat asses, but one of my hypotheses is that he knows it's not all right and he's doing it to piss people off or to make fun of them. Sweet. But he's the only one that's allowed. No one else. I mean it. Don't don one and say you're being ironic like Frank on 30 Rock or you truly deserve those felt letters ironed onto your actual forehead in a pattern which reads "free VD," "crazy long ballsack" or, really, any variety of embarrassing statements. Just sayin'. Judah Friedlander takes his comedy and his hat onstage at the Addison Improv, 4980 Belt Line Road, Wednesday through Saturday. Check for showtimes and tickets.
