Be Honest…How Ugly Is My Tie?

football tieWe’re all friends here, Modern Philosophers, and I always want you to feel free to speak your mind in the comments section of this blog.

I’ve never been a fashion plate.  I wear togas all the time, so how important can fashion be to me?

Every once in a while, though, I like to spice things up (pun most definitely intended!) by wearing one of my Tabasco ties to work.  Someone always ends up asking me “Why are you all dressed up?” and I always reply with a roll of my eyes.

These Tabasco ties were forced on me by my former father-in-law every Christmas, and they just sit in a storage bin in the bottom of my closet.  Until I remember how hideous they are, and how much fun it is to spring them on an unsuspecting office of coworkers.

So be straight with me, Modern Philosophers.  Just how ugly is the tie I wore today?

I know the photo is a little blurry, but there’s a football stadium with a giant Tabasco logo in the middle of the gridiron.  Then there are mighty Tabasco bottle blimps floating over the stadium, presumably providing aerial coverage for the viewers at home.

Tell me what you think about it.  I’ll be offended if the comments section is empty, or if all the replies are sweet and without backbone.

This is your safe place to share your Deep Thoughts.  Let me have it before I produce a Modern Philosopher’s Tabasco Tie Calendar and send you all one for the Holidays!

    That is so ugly my eyes burn…

  3. NotAPunkRocker says:

    It’s very unique. Unforgettable, for sure.

  4. emtag2 says:

    Honestly, that is one of the ugliest ties I have ever seen. But I’ve always respected a man who wears ugly ties!

  5. E.L. Wicker says:

    Sorry, but I disagree with majority. I think it’s fun! I like it.

  6. Budweiser may be the King of Beers but Tabasco, clearly, is the King of Truly Shocking Ties! Wearing that one must be an effective way of clearing a room! 😉

  7. toddfisk says:

    that’s a great tie! I especially enjoy the blimps. Dirigibles are drastically undervalued in our society!

  8. grannyK says:

    Yeah, kind of ugly, but daring at the same time!

  9. hollie says:

    Pretty stinkin’ ugly.

  10. Is that tie made in Korea? Because it is Fug Lee.

  11. Maybe you’ll start a trend!

  12. floridaborne says:

    That’s a tie? I thought someone threw up on the floor.

  13. Oh what will you come up with next? Of all things… a Tabasco tie??? I appreciate a good laugh every now and then. Thanks for humoring me as I sit here pondering deep thoughts about the universe. My brain is about to explode and I really needed this. 😉

  14. It’s hard to get the full effect on my laptop’s small screen, but I’m quite certain a flying buffalo must have upchucked on your tie.

  15. Are you going to share the other ugly Tabasco ties? And is there a story as to why your former FIL always gave you a Tabasco tie for xmas?

  16. suejansons says:

    It’s pretty darn ugly. It makes me wonder what was wrong with the person who designed it.

  17. rozaliadame says:

    If it’s football season, 10/10. Another time… maybe only pushing a 3/10 =D

  18. markbialczak says:

    Don’t tell me, Austin, your former father-in-law’s biggest client was Tabasco …

    Yeah, ugly tie. But that’s OK. Ugly ties are in with me. 🙂

  19. Ties really shouldn’t have that much detail.
    Happy Birthday!

  20. idiotprufs says:

    I like ugly ties because they distract from my face.

  21. I fought the urge to reblog the first post I read, but this one is worth reblogging, imo. I also agree with E.L. Wicker. I don’t think it’s ugly at all. I think it’s fun and cool. It may be blurry or it may be my old eyes, but is that the pre-9/11 New York skyline on that tie? Either way, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Austin. 🙂

    • Austin says:

      Thank you for the birthday wishes, the share, and for the kind words. I hope you’ll stick around the blog and read more. I’m always trying to recruit new Modern Philosophers! 🙂

  22. Reblogged this on Epiphanies & Peas and commented:
    As Tuesday and Thursday are my Random Thoughts/Reblog days, I had planned to reblog a post of Suzie81’s from Dec.31. When I went to her blog to do that, I read her post wishing Austin a Happy Birthday which reblogged his post… I followed up on that and well, here is the result. Is it Ugly, or is it Kool? Let him know what you think. HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUSTIN!

  23. Your real question should be, “Does this tie make my belly look big?”

  24. The Hook says:

    It’s still prettier than a Kardashian’s soul.

  25. It’s painful. I may seek recourse.
