Macaroni update

Exciting news about macaroni.

In fact, about macaroni wigs.

Apparently the young twits who came back to England from Italy in the mid 1700s boasting constantly about how cool they were (okay, it's not exactly new news!) used to wear flour-coated wigs so pointy at the top that they could only take their hats off with their swords.

I can see it must have been fun to wear one, if only because it would have annoyed the old folk just immensely!
