Yankee Doodle Went to Town

Lots of famous people have worn feathers in their cap.  Robin Hood, Peter Pan, Yankee Doodle Dandy...  Now, when Doodle Dandy stuck a feather in his hat and called it macaroni, as a kid, I wondered why anyone would put a macaroni noodle on top of their head.  Alas, it was not the cheesy, pasta meal they were talking about; macaroni is an 18th century man who affected the Continental fashions of the day.  So Doodle was just pointing out his trendsetting ways to the good folk of Yankee-town.  The feather in a hat has obviously proved to be more than a passing Dandy-trend, as it is still around today.
