have become a thing
I hate snakes
I quite like snakes - but would not try to anthropomorphisize one by dressing it up in hat. I loathe to see any animal disrespected in that way.
I was going to comment about snakes and ladders, but that would be very droll!
Snakes don't benefit from hats!
Since they are cold-blooded, a hat doesn't keep in any warmth for them.
