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.
