Tie Leaves Me Bereft And Bored

Brian Williams tosses on his black and blue striped tie once again, and once again I am bereft of metaphor. I am, quite simply, aweary of this tie. I used to think it mysterious and semi-formal and a bit of a fashion statement. And perhaps to the less...shall we say...cravat-aware, it is. But to me, it is just one more striped tie that has begun to bore me the way that watching Christmas specials now bores children with DVD players in their MomVans: what was once rare and anticipated is now commonplace and vapid. How very sad.
