Dear Tiff and Earl,

I have no idea what a cowl is. Can you please tell me?

A Boogie Wit a Cowl


Dear Boogie Wit, 

A cowl is the newspaper you are currently holding to read this. I mean, it says “Cowl” in big letters on the front, so it is kind of self-explanatory. If you’re  wondering why the paper is called the Cowl, then that’s a different story. It’s named after the little hoody-thingy on the priests’habits that flies over their heads when it’s really windy outside. You would think it’d be useful in the rain, but I haven’t seen one use it for that yet. I’m sure the dozens of friars would be happy to tell you more about it if you are so thoroughly intrigued. Actually, they might be happy about it. They don’t really get to talk about fashion because they wear the same thing every day. 

Knowledge is good,


Dear A Boogie Wit a ?,

… I don’t know.
