Last week, there was a big ole Xbox celebration, and with that came my new favorite video game personality: Xbox In A Hat. I asked you to ‘shop up some things for Xbox In A Hat to do for its birthday, and you didn’t disappoint.

What makes an Xbox with a hat so special? After all, you can put a hat on anything. There’s nothing stopping you from putting a hat on a fire hydrant, an emu, or a cup of hot chocolate. But you’re not doing that. No one is hatting all the objects of the Earth, and so therefore Xbox In A Hat is fairly unique. And I enjoy it.

Our winner this week is Done With Kinja, who took two different kinds of story-specific hat and smashed them together. One was a valiant story of hat that talks to kids. The other is a story of a birthday hat. Together? Nothing could stop them.

But that’s not all. I’ve got some excellent honorable mentions for you, but make sure you go back and read through all the submissions on the original post.
