Win this hat!

Dress to impress: This hat could be yours. © Ignatius Rake

In a selfless act of altruism, we're giving away this fantastic hat that fashion editor Kok Wang picked up at his local Netto while off his cods on cider.

Made out of "100% paper", this charming hat is all you need to impress your friends and woo members of the opposite sex (or the same sex if that's what floats your boat).

Featuring a domey thing for the top of your head, a brim and some colour, this gorgeous titfa is by far the best thing ever made/worn.

In fact, with a chapeau like this there is simply no need for other clothes so once you've won it you can take everything in your wardrobe down to the car boot sale and use the money raised to buy a raffia lamp post.

And what's more, it couldn't be easier to win.

All you have to do is answer this simple question in 10 words or fewer:

What is the meaning of life?

You've got until this coming August 27 to email us your answers or top yourself trying.

We'll even print the best few submissions received if we can be arsed.

So get scribbling because that hat simply has to be won1.

Good luck and may the force be with you.


1) Or it goes in the bin.

NB. It is only the hat that's up for grabs. Not the Mexican wrestling mask or anything else shown in the above picture. Just the hat. I repeat, just the hat. Furthermore, Kok Wang's decision is final and he has already ruled that '42' is not the answer as far as he is concerned. Got that? Oh, and bribes are OK as well.

Share this story, yeah?
