Brian's Own Beaujolais Birthday Tie

What's this? In a bit of a stunner, Brian Williams takes a sidestep off the Path o' Purple, a detour from the Rue de la Routine, and tonight knotted up a cravat of solid claret. This necktie reminds me of early December, when I can enjoy the first wave of Georges du Boeuf's Beaujolais Nouveau, a pretty wine with good color and pleasant, fruity drinkability. It's a lovely wine in its own way, but you don't take it too seriously. In other words, Brian, this Beaujolais-colored tie doesn't get you off the hook with me. I sure hope you get some new ties today for your birthday.
