Each year the Annapolis Naval Academy freshman class, known as 'Plebes,' climb a monument covered in lard to retrieve the Plebian Sailor's hat and replace it with an officer's hat. The tradition is one step in marking the end of wearing freshman headgear and moving up to headgear more like a U.S. Naval officer.
It is also the gayest tradition ever.
