Picture Of The Day: Need Some Protection For Your Fancy Hat?

The Kentucky Derby is one of those great American pastimes which brings people of all different social classes together.  Whether you are incredibly rich, or an unemployed alcoholic, the Derby has something to offer for everyone.  This year’s edition came with quite a bit of rain, and for the latter group mentioned above, that meant some good old fashion mud wrestling or a slippery run through the porta-potty gauntlet.

As for the upper-class women in attendance, they could be seen in the stands doing everything possible to prevent their big fancy hats from getting wet.  This lady appears to be on to something!
