    If it prevents a single head injury it will be well worth it. Probably a little investment in materials science will restore the size.

    Around Bert, people would need protective shoes as well.
    Oh, I'm a lumberjack, and I'm okay,
    I sleep all night and I work all day.

    Would look more Minnesotan with ear flaps, but's definitely got an outdoorsy hunting cap vibe to it.

    I was just going to make an Elmer Fudd reference, but you beat me to it by a good 50 minutes.

    It reminds me of the line from Major League when Ricky Vaughn tries on his first pair of glasses:
    Lou Brown: You look good. Besides, seeing is the most important thing.

    Willie Mays Hayes: I don't think it's that important.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Looks like Bert is getting ready to spin off a curveball.
