I don't know about "potato" and "bird", but "hat" could possibly be a reference to Black Hat Guy, who often creates havoc to prove a point.  Also, completely separately from Black Hat Guy, in security discussions, attackers are broken up between black hat ("bad") and white hat ("good") hackers.  So "hat" could be a sort of generic reference for a hacker. {{unsigned ip|199.27.128.116}}
