I think people often just pick up what they here around them. What are "dealy boppers?"

Is it a polite term? The Japanese call all foreigners "Gaijin" which translated means outsider people. It is not a very pleasent word but I prefer it to Alien, which the Japanese government use when a foreigner registers in Japan. I took along my dealy boppers so I looked like a real Alien. They weren't impressed.
In Thailand, white people are called 'Farang' (sometimes Falang).  It becomes very obvious when you hear the word over and over again while you're walking around.

Right! I think the technical description is "unconventional items of headwear, the wearing of which is usually associated with excessive alcoholic consumption."

They are also worn to represent antenna. Lots of people think that aliens have antenna hence my wearing them to register as an alien.

Nothin' printable in a family newspaper... Sorry, I was exhibiting stereotypical male behaviour... That happens, sometimes.
