Cornish humor

My favorite hat, the “Pork Pie” hat originated some time in the mid 1800’s. It was named for the resemblance to a pork pie which is a type of meat pie that is a staple of British food. Americans have a similar pie. They call it a pot pie, of which the “chicken pot pie” is most popular. I bet the pork pie hat wouldn’t be so popular if it was called the chicken pot pie hat.
