Q: My co-worker and I have been debating for the last few weeks on whether it's ok to wear one's sunglasses on top of one's head or not. He says its as un-cool and as fashionably retarded as both crocs and the phone-waist-belt thingy. I'm not so sure (because I occasionally wear my sunglasses over the top of my head) and sometimes find the utility of the over-the-noggin thing outweighs the geek factor. Perhaps you could settle this dispute once and for all.

A: Our answer tangentially relates to a recent Ask the MB segment, where we said, "Never buy cowboy boots in Texas."

Wearing one's sunglasses on top of one's head is allowed only in the following three places:

1. Hawaii.
2. Southern California, south of 34 degrees North latitude. (Just south of LA.)
3. Miami Beach. Lincoln Road and all points south.

(And it's got to be sunny.)

Live anywhere else and you're buying your co-worker a drink.
