Debro keeps his insane hat with him at all times - he NEVER takes it off.
Why? ... You may well ask, why.....
The terrible truth is that "debro" (as we know him) has been a patient in a high security mental institution for many, many years. The poor man is afflicted the the permanent delusion that he is in fact the 18th century British explorer, Sir Giles Pinkerton Simley Perkins III.
The original Sir Giles Pinkerton Simley Perkins III ("Pinkers" to his terribly posh British aristocratic friends) captained a sea voyage of discovery to a far away, and as yet undiscovered land, we now know as Australia.
The voyage was doomed as Pinkers, who had no practical skills (being an aristocrat) decided that a diet of sauerkraut would keep his crew happy and free of scurvy for the entire voyage. Terrible things happened on that ship as a result of the sauerkraut induced flatulence, and in sight of the Australian coast, the ship blew sky high after one particular build up of methane proved too much. All hands were lost in the explosion.... except somehow "Pinkers" survived. He is reported to have been plagued by chronic flatulence for the rest of his days.
Now, back in Australia a few years ago, "Debro" was researching his family tree, and discovered that he was the direct descendant of Sir Giles Pinkerton Simley Perkins III. There could be no doubt about it; for he too had been plagued with vicious flatulence for his entire life. Not only was he horribly flatulent, but also he was the direct descendant of a British aristocratic nincompoop!!!
The news sent him over the edge, and down the other side into his safe place. From that day on he has firmly believe himself to be good old "Pinkers".
The insane hat stays firmly on his head, for he believes himself to be on the long and gassy voyage from Britain, and will eat nothing but a diet of sauerkraut.
Recently he has been undergoing therapy with Ms Kylie Minogue, who also believes herself to be a British aristocrat.
