    What's the point of a joke if you don't take it to the Nth degree?

    If you want to know where it comes from, it all started in this thread.

    Thanks for the link, and for clearing up the Sombreroprise. I'd seen that thread, but not the first few pages.

    My guts hurt from laughing! :rommie:

    It's just another unfunny fad, like all those stupid unicorn avs people had a year or two ago

    Speaking of taking something that was once funny and beating it to death...

    Nope. Just a bunch of sheeple doing something they think is amusing. It's not.

    Please tell us what's funny then...that won't make us "sheeple".

    And congrats on using an overused term. I'm sure it was only for irony.

    I fail to see what's sheepy about it.

    Almost nothing is so serious that a sombrero, mustache, or PEZ added to it would be inappropriate. Sometimes, you've just got to laugh at the absurd.

    I agree. Or as Hobbes so rightly observed, "What fun is it being 'cool' if you can't wear a sombrero?"

    I think it is kinda stupid myself, but it's not hurting me, so let people have their fun. Just be glad it hasn't gone the way of the whole "Day of the Dove" fad a few years back.

    Being a Mexican I find it offensive. Being a Trekker I find it stupid, we have wonderful conversations here but it seems that whenever the conversation gets good someone will try to fit a sombrero gag or joke into the mix when it's not needed.

    But i hear over at sombreroBBS they are having problems with Trek jokes in the threads. Oh wait I'm not Mexican.
