Wordless Wednesday: Rearranging Neckties on the Titanic

by Andre · 4 Comments

Looks like Ben Stein has found an even more pathetic intellectual cul-de-sac than creationism (ahem, intelligent design). It warmed my heart to learn, during his grumpy defense of the yoke, that only six percent of men still wear neckties. “Now, the tie’s situation has become so dire that the American Dress Furnishings Association — the trade group that represents the tie business — announced it was shutting down.” Perhaps the Creator’s hand is at work after all.

    “Perhaps the Creator’s hand is at work after all.”
    Ha. Thanks for the laugh.

    I always thought neckties were ridiculous. And they look CHOKEY!

    Ido still wears them sometimes on business!

    My condolences. I suppose it’s still inevitable in some circles. I long for the day when the necktie is seen the same way most westerners view the hijab.

    Ironically, Google AdSense is serving advertisements for Neckties on this page! ;-)

    Gotta love that contextual advertising. If you’re a necktie fan, please buy through my AdSense link to protest my stand.
