The results are in for the annual Viennese stupid winter hat competition. It was a closer context this year. Several of last year’s runners-up really improved their game in the off season. Thanks to the liberal immigration policy there were several new contenders as well. The award ceremony was conducted on the platform of the U4 subway stop at Wahringer Strasser. The musical stylings of a busking harpist marched the contestants before the judges. In the end, it was a decision between the couple with the pompom caps in contrasting colors of orange and blue (He wore orange; She wore blue), and the old woman with the purple fuzzball clos. And the winner is the purple fuzzball. Thanks to all of this year’s contestants.
