Those sound like good guesses to me. But a propeller beanie is also a distinct possibility.

Piling on (but, hey, it's the Pit):

Here's drad dog praising Blazing Saddles, and its star, Richard Pryor.

(Pssst...that was Cleavon Little, not Pryor.)

I think you may be misunderstanding his post. Or perhaps I am. But Pryor was a writer on Blazing Saddles, but he didn't play a role because of his issues. The "erstwhile star" phrasing does confuse that sentence, though. But I think that's what he was getting at.

True, I suppose. Though, it looks like I'm not the only one who was confused.

I agree, and sometimes I kinda almost get his point, he just twists it into absolutely nothing.

FYI drad: I'm still open to have you do a gig at an event of mine.

Mommmmmm, it's doing that thing again. That thing being missing the fundamental point that was being discussed, then basically accusing of the people trying to educate them on the fundamental point of being absolutists in bizarre ways. They start with a stupid "Units of what" post at the bottom of page 2. I dunno, it's a thread about music theory, so it's probably fucking sound frequencies, genius.

It goes on at about that level of understanding for a couple of pages after that, probably to continue for awhile. I've ceased to care if they're that stupid or the most dedicated of trolls. The effect is the same.
