    The feathers are an extra fabulous touch.

    Here's a question: Why the feathers? I wonder how that got started.

    He just wanted a feather in his cap :wink:

    In ceremonial dress, the biggest the hat, the biggest the status (thus the big hat expression.)

    There has to be some naked birds laughing themselves silly upon see where their feathers were used.

    The only problem with the feathers in his hat as it wasn't long before he was hanging upside down. Mussolini
