Friday Caption Contest: Cravat Day Edition

Yes, we’re back from our near-death experience with a caption contest celebrating the historical Cravat Day. What, YOU didn’t celebrate Cravat Day? You’re joking, surely! Everybody loves a man in uniform, and these cravaty ones are particularly snazzulous.

The blurb says:

Croatia celebrates Cravat Day by staging a ceremony of traditional military units wearing cravats on St. Mark’s Square, in front of parliament and government buildings. The day honours a local belief that Croatian soldiers were the first in Europe to wear cravats, a traditional kind of neck cloth, while performing their military duties.

Little-known fact: Cravats are highly practical, as they can be used as a bandage or a sling in case of medical emergency, which one not infrequently encounters in the process of performing military duties in Croatia.

    I love a man in uniform. Especially if it reminds of me of Fred from Scooby-Doo.
