I might have to get one of these ready for next spring.

I'm nerdy enough to wear some of them. Not the angry bird ones though - more the cat, spider or character animal ones.

Yes I know - I am truly tragic....

I don't need my kids seeing this, they love buying me angry bird stuff for Christmas / birthday / fathers day etc.

I already have angry bird pj's, t-shirts and coffee mug... I don't need anymore angry bird stuff.

I gotta get one of those. Or 2.
A few month ago I was riding between Bright and Harrietville when the cadoodle gang was intent on spoiling my rides. They won. No less than 5 attacked me on the way up and 6 on the way back.The last one before Bright grabbed my shoulder and pecked at my helmet. Mongrels!
Next day I tied a small rag to my helmet and my 2 spare cable ties. It only deterred one maggie. The rest took it as a challenge, I think.
They only became more cautious when I had my pocket camera facing backwards on my helmet so the little angry bird hats should face backwards.
I'm still going to get one.
