Talk:beanie

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to navigation Jump to search

I've replaced the example. I don't think it's helpful to have amusing examples, especially ones that use made-up words ("psychotronic"). I haven't had a sense-of-humour bypass - it's just that I think that jokey examples are often not helpful in illustrating the use of words. Feel free to edit or alter my example if it still isn't illustrative. — Paul G 14:01, 16 Sep 2004 (UTC)


The current def would work also in Australia but it doesn't cover the "propellor beanie" which is a classic American cartoon nerd/geek stereotype marker. I'd be pretty sure it could cover some type of headgear of similar design/construction without the propellor too. I'm not sure if the def should be expanded or if it would be a separate sense. — Hippietrail 18:46, 12 Oct 2004 (UTC)
