Protecting your noggin from undesired electromagnetic fields and thought control requires something reflective, yet fashionable. Everyone knows that the tin foil hat has been the go-to choice for years (since at least 1926).
But it's 2018 now and only fools would craft their own headgear, because you can now just buy (a mylar) one from Archie McPhee. It even has a chin strap to keep it on your head.

First there were Finger Hands, little vinyl hands that fit on your finger, much like finger puppets. Now, there are Finger Hands for Finger Hands, even smaller hands that fit on the fingers of your Finger Hands (or pens/pencils). Of course, I love them because they're so perfectly bizarre.
For $5 you get 10 of them and they come in light and dark skin tones. If you need A LOT of them, they are available in bulk too (144 mixed skin tones/left and right hands for $59.95). They're from Archie McPhee, of course.
