We don't claim to be experts on gondola fashion, and maybe it's none of our business, but we can't help wondering if the gondolier in this photo realizes that baseball caps worn backwards are known as "IQ reducers" in some circles.

(Then again, maybe the gondolier is catching for the Venice Lagooners softball team after his rowing shift.)
