Why does a glutton make the best hat ever?


A glutton is another name for a wolverine. They’re sort of enormous extra-fierce weasels:


 They’re famously greedy and bad-tempered, but they’re nice and furry. Glutton fur is specially good for hats because ice from the moisture in your breath refuses to form on it.

So if you can catch a glutton, kill it, skin it, then cure the skin, you’ve got the very best cold-weather hat ever; and you can give it to your sweetheart, if you are lucky enough to have one.

 Just don’t expect all that much gratitude, that’s all.

  1. That's more like it! Not cold and dark and brains etc but a nice furry hat that won't freeze. What could be better? And I LOVE the name GLUTTON for a wolverine. Who knew?? You'd have to do the skin curing first, though, wouldn't you? With those BRAINS?? No getting away from them, it seems.
