Graduation is just around the corner for many, and with it, the donning of the traditional cap-and-gown that is the uniform of a soon to be university graduate. But whence did this odd form of dress originate? you might ask. The graduation cap, or mortarboard, is believed to have evolved from the biretta, a hat worn by the Roman Catholic clergy.

Bored Panda has put together this list of funny graduation caps for you, soon to be former students, to help stave off the inevitable malaise that accompanies joining the workforce. Which hat do you find the funniest? Vote on your favourite, or submit your own funny graduation cap pictures! (h/t)
