Crocheted Futurama Bender 'Toque' (Hat)

March 15, 2011



I had to look up what a toque was because I thought it was when you smoke the marijuanas but that made zero sense in this context. Nope, turns out it's a brimless hat most commonly known for being the tall white ones chefs wear. Hey, you learn something new everyday. Today I learned what a toque is. Plus to tie my shoes!

Check out this Bender toque that was crocheted by hand by [Etsy seller] Cheewawamomma!

You have to admit that Bender is one of the most likable robots on TV, given his sunny disposition. Although I'm not sure if the kid wearing the toque should be having her mind corrupted by watching Futurama yet, adults sure can enjoy it. I guess that's why the hat is covering up her eyes and ears.

Thanks but no thanks, lady, I have my own bender helmet. Get it? Because my mom makes me wear protective headgear so I don't injure myself when I'm drunk. It used to be a lacrosse helmet, but I recently switched to a motorcycle helmet because I think it makes me look more like a fighter pilot. ROGER DODGER BOGEY BARTENDER, GW NEEDS ANOTHER SHOT, OVER. "You're cut off." OH COME ON -- BECAUSE I PISSED MY FLIGHT-SUIT?! "Those are capris." I'M A NAVY PILOT.

Hit the jump for a crocheted Bender toilet paper cover made by the same artist.

Thanks to Katherine, who's only interested in midnight toque-in', amirite? No? Took the whole D.A.R.E. thing pretty serious, huh?

    Umm, a touqe is a winter hat. You must be from the south. Everyone in Canada and the north wore touques when they were 2. It is not a hat chef's wear. It is a knitted hat you wear in th snow. But still, cool post

    and i want one bad!

    Wow, this looks so good and I am feeling quite tempted to have this hat. I admit that Bender is one of the most likeable robots of the TV. Definitely, I would love to buy assignment and wear this hat. Thanks a lot for sharing this amazing post.

    Bankruptcy ought to be the last resort of the person who would like
    to eliminate financial obligations. Despite this particular, personal
    documents for personal bankruptcy now number several million each year.
    The major reason for this is actually the fact that many people don't
    really believe that debt eradication without bankruptcy can be done.
