Mayor Misses Meeting – Suffering From Phantom Hat
Mayor Howard Presnell was not in attendance at the town meeting yesterday due to a bout with a malady known as “phantom hat.”
Mayor Presnell’s personal physician explained: “You know how it is when you wear a hat for a long time, and after you take it off it feels like you still have it on? That’s what we have here.”
It was after several hours of yard work while wearing his Chrislip College Fighting Pines baseball cap that Mayor Presnell first noticed the symptoms. Phantom hat is not considered serious and only rarely leads to lasting complications.
The doctor reported that the mayor is in fine spirits, but that he “just can’t get it through his head that he doesn’t have a hat on.”
