There's Drama Here

There's definitely some kind of drama going on here. One guy is yawning. But the guy next to him is totally fed up about something, or by the looks of it, someONE in particular.

We'll never ever know.

Jughead Beanie

Holy cow! Get a load of the hat the yawning guy is wearing. It's actually designed. Reminds me of Jughead, of Archie comics. Apparently it was a style among boys in the 1930's to cut the brim of a man's hat and make the crenellations.
