Happy April Fool's Day!

It’s become tradition, on April Fool’s, for people on the internet to post something untrue and present it as true, then reveal the next day that it was all a prank and they made it up (or else post something true which people believe is false, then the next day revealing that the prank is that it’s actually true, as a clever friend of mine once did). But we all know how the world works- if it’s jokingly presented as truth for the purpose of pranking or for irony, someone will miss the memo and think it fact.

So instead, let’s play a game of “Two truths and a lie.” I’m going to say three things about the Sarmatians and on the 8th, 15th, and 22th I have scheduled the posting of each topic wherein I will explain how and why each is true or false


  1. Hats! The lie is in the hats!

    That's my guess, anyway. It sounds logical - after all, winter cold would make it practical to protect the face - but I'm going to say they used scarves instead, especially in light of the smurf-like hats you posted on in the past.

  2. That's my guess, as well. I much prefer this to an April Fool's prank, by the way.
