1. Would you rather have a great wardrobe or an amazing car?

2. Would you rather your home had a pool, a tennis court, or a rose garden?

ANSWERS By: Austin Smith

1. I don’t drive at the moment, so I guess I’d have to be a great wardrobe.

2. I don’t swim, nor do I play tennis, but a rose garden sounds like not my favorite thing. I’m torn between tennis and roses, I guess I’ll go with roses just in case I don’t like tennis.

1. If you could go to the Olympics in one sport which would you choose?

2. Should kids be forced to try new foods?

ANSWERS By: Austin Smith

1. If I’m making one up… Pillow fighting. One that’s already there, probably distance running of some kind. Perhaps table tennis, yes that one.

2. No, they should certainly be encouraged to, they can be forced to smell it. The number of foods that I can’t eat because they will make me vomit is incredible, and I would hate to be forced to eat them. I can usually tell if I don’t like it by the smell usually. So encourage, but don’t force. I could live my whole life on hamburgers and not care, and I’m fine with that.

A Second Tie Sampler (With Designer Thoughts)

Since the last one was such a success… Here are more ties with designer thoughts.


This one has some very strange neon cats and toys with a teal background.


“Oh, these splotches of paint I just dripped look like cats, guys check this out, we gotta do something with this!”


Here’s a Tabasco one, with standard sea food and tabacso logos floating through ribbons of color.


“I have to do a colorful tie now. What do people eat with hot sauce, oh yeah, fish and stuff… I have no idea what I’ll do tomorrow, but for today the tie has seafood.”


Now we have Mickey Mouse… playing golf… in what is apparently hell and the Matrix.


“Another Mickey tie! I can’t do this anymore! What am I even… Oh I have a game on Saturday, I’ll have Mickey playing golf! at least then I can pretend my job is better than it is and I’m playing golf.” 


Here are some people watching a tennis game.


“Man TV is so boring. All there is to watch is tennis… tennis, tennis, tennis… oh, I’ve accidentally made a tie.”


Dis one got money, da Grants and da Benjamin’s


“Ha money, money, money, I have so much money, my tie is made out of money. I bet other people would want to pretend to be like me.” 


And finally, one with Abrams tanks, no I’m not wearing it.


“You’ve heard of tank tops, now let me show you tank ties… God, I need sleep!”
