Official Tie of Wal*Mart Shoppers Everywhere

At least we haven't seen this tie for almost a month. But, we have seen it. Who could forget it? The glimmering miniature purple houndstooth pattern on a white background is not something I can soon forget, no matter how hard I've tried. Upon first glance, I thought Brian had committed a second fashion faux pas and repeated the solid grape tie in speedy procession, but no: as soon as the camera closed in, I groaned in true dismay. This tie is, to put it nicely, regrettable; to put it more strongly, ugly; to put it Nancely, hideous to the point of making me want to declare it the Official Tie of Wal*Mart Shoppers Everywhere. Sigh. I am spent.
