Tragi-Comic Tie

Pack up the vittles in a basket, Granny, and Pa, get the fishpoles ready, ‘cause we’re headed down to the lake for the day! Brian has slung on his red and white checkered tie evoking Elly May or even Daisy Mae—hell, take your pick from any rusticating character who might swing a wicker hamper full of something downhome and eat it outdoors on a gingham cloth while wearing gingham. Shoot, even Joe Btfsplk might pack up his troubles in a red and white check dishrag and tie it onto a tree limb and slouch on outta town. Something Brian might consider for this misbegotten cravat.
