Triangle Man

Well, it's the classic and only shape on a hamentash, the triangle. Does anyone know the source for Haman having worn a triangle hat? And was his theme song Triangle Man? (yeah I know it's really particle man).

One source is that it's man-taschen, and that it became Haman Taschen over time.

In Israel they are called oznei Haman.

The sefer Tal Torah quotes a Yalkut that says the Jews communicated secretly during the period in question by hiding the messages inside special pastries.
