A Grim Fairy Tale

Once upon a time in a land far away, there was a Sad Ugly Tie of ultramarine blue with narrow sky blue stripes and still narrower pale blue stripes of a yet another shade even more incompatible with the ultramarine blue. "Oh, crap," SUT sighed. "I am so hideously unsightly that no one, not ever, will want to wear me around his neck. My shades of blue do not match even each other, let alone a suit of any decent level of taste or style. I will probably end up in a Dollar Store or on the neck of some inbred at a Halloween party catered by Bud Light and Pork Rinds R Us." Just then, America's Most Trusted Voice In News reached for him, and he lived happily ever after. The End.
