    Carl, Take Off That Hat!

    Is there anyone else out there in the fandom that would like to see Carl put away the corny dad hat? I mean, not only take it off, but also burn it in a ceremonial fire, then spread its ashes somewhere far far away?

    I get get the symbolism and why he wore it at first. Rick gave it to him after he was accidentally shot by Otis during a tender "hey now we're both in the I've-been-shot-club" moment.

    But that was years ago. Carl has been through a helluva lot more since then that, in my opinion, kinda renders the "I've-been-shot-club" as minor. (Killing his mother comes to mind).

    Well for us it's been years and Carl has grown older but in terms of the series, he shouldn't be that much older than when he was recovering back at Hershel's farm. If he was still that little kid then wearing the hat wouldn't look so bad. Carl aging and becoming a young man with that terrible long hair makes him look laughable. Please, get rid of the hat!

    Carl can hang it over the mantel on one of the nails used to hold Michonne's Katana then cut his hair, tie a ribbon around it, and hang it on the other nail. Then blow up the house.

    I would rather see him get rid of his hair! He doesn't need to wear the hat all the time but i think he should keep it.

    I vote for Carl to stop wearing the hat, but keep it on his wa or on a dresser or something.

    I don't mind the hat, but the hair needs to go.

    Oy vey, The Hat. On the plus side, it does cover up Carl's hair.

    Chandler said he wanted a hair cut this season but Gimple nixed that. I'm assuming TWD wanted to reduce the time CR spent in the make up chair after Carl lost his eye.

    Sadly, CR's recent photos evidence there is no haircut in Carl's future so I vote for retention of The Hat.
