    The hood is a bonnet and thus whats under the bonnet? Since the X and S are empty... it would be a "headcase" or "airhead"?

    Or using other english logic... It would go from bonnet storage to BS and back to "Bullshit". I can only begin to think of its useage in this capacity. "how big is your bullshit?"

    My apoligies in advance to the pommies who stumble accross this thread. :tongue:

    A froot is exactly what I thought of :cool:. But no surprise that others thought of it as well. And even though it sounds silly, it makes sense.

    Two nations, separated by a common language. I learned early on to exercise discretion in the use of words like fanny and pants. My current question is how do our brethren and sistren across the pond celebrate 4/20 day? 20/4? Loses something in translation.

    Maybe you can call it a pirate hat, Party hat, Electric bonnet/Elon’s bonnet (e bonnet) . It should be something you wear on your head that is way cooler than a plain ol bonnet.
