Fun wearing a Fez?

While we are dawdling in the foyer ( see earlier blogs), here's a brief diversion on a subject of cultural interest.

Does the wearing of a fez mean that you're automatically having fun or are you perhaps the dictator of a small African country?
Worn by the Greek army, sported across the Ottoman Empire, the fez was taken up in the West by Victorian gents in smoking jackets.
This century has seen it adorning the heads of show biz luminaries such as Laurel and Hardy, Tommy Cooper and the marvellous Wilson, Keppel and Betty.

Furthermore, does the fez suit any dog more than the English Bull Terrier? Perhaps an Airedale................
