Tonight Brian Williams reverts to one of his many yellow and blue striped ties. It's boring. This is the Dick and Jane of cravats. Is it offensive? No. Is it exciting? No. Look. Look. It is a tie. And that is all that it is.
Why Aren't There Pictures Of The Ties On This Blog?
I have to chuckle every time I get this question--and I get it more than I care to admit.
Putting photos of the ties on my blog would then render my descriptions totally unnecessary and extraneous, would it not? Why then, would I need to describe them if you could just look at them? If you would, however, like to witness the Sartorial Splendour of Bri's Ties, you can always do what I do--watch the newscast! If you aren't home or can't eke out that time, then after 10 PM, you can go to the MSNBC.com Nightly News site and play the webcast.
These ties have worn out their welcome at The Nightly: TWSNLBRAINDTM-- The Gadgety Tie-- The Picnic Tie--All Solid Purple Ties--Dogpatch Designer Challenge Tie--Grey Amoeba Tie (added 4-16-14).
What does "TWSNLBRAINDTM" Mean?
This strange acronym stands for Tie Which Shall No Longer Be Reviewed And Is Now Dead To Me. Brian wore it with such shameless frequency and it is such a boring, pedestrian tie (which spawned a series of ties with the similar color combination and stripes--always stripes!) that I have forever refused to describe it ever again. If you wish to read a description of this awful tie, you may refer to the 2/19, 4/18, 5/3, 5/10, and 5/15 of the 2007 Tie Reports. After that, I went completely over the edge and conferred TWSNLBRAINDTM status.
