Sue:

 Panda Girl has been watching Stargate & I keep seeing Daniel wear that goofy hat on missions. Not quite as nerdy as me & my moosenoculars- but close... (Sue is into moose.  I once gave her a pair of binoculars fitted into a plush "moosehead" as a joke...she actually really uses them...like for real and stuff.)

 

Me:

It’s a “Boonie hat”.  It is also known as a “Seattle Sombrero”Sheds water, shields the eyes from the sun, prevents sunburn, and establishes unassailable nerd cred.

The perfect gift for the paleo-linguist/archeologist/philologist/ethnologist/morsel of intergalactic man-candy  who has everything.J

Sue:

yah. I describe it more as, "hot man looks like dork."

Me:

Exactly.  If he didn’t look like a dork, would you believe he had three PhDs and spoke twenty-six languages?

 Same reason Sam has to have a long string of ugly-yet-sensible haircuts.  How else could we believe that she’s a theoretical astrophysicist who can kick the ass of a Mongol war-lord in single combat?

Sue:

Good point. And yet, MacGyver remains...MacGyver. (referring to Jack, played by Richard Dean Anderson)

Me:

Uh…No!

THAT McGyver, had a mullet.  THIS McGyver has a buzz cut.

 Plus, THAT McGyver’s boss, played by Don S. Davies had an SPECIAL FORCES UNIFORM…and THIS McGyver’s boss played by Don S. Davies has an AIR FORCE uniform.

 Totally different McGyver.

Duh!

(actually, Don S. Davies was the stunt double for the actor that played McGyvers boss on McGyver.  But this makes a better story, and it’s ALMOST true)
