Every good deed deserves a white hat [Humor]


I don’t know about you, but this brought a smile to my face. Yes, yes I know: -50 man points for being emotional.

    [@jayesstee] I always thought it was a Spy vs Spy reference. But then I never understood why the white one was considered good, just because of the color of the hat…

    That was the definition for a “White Knight”. ¬†Same movie era, just a lot less of them (movies).

    [@jayesstee] You are so right, both over there and over here.

    And as I remember it “white hat” has always meant someone doing good deeds.
