Animated: Miguel Cabrera throws gum at Ryan Raburn BenRMAs someone who has to wear a tie everyday (and who also wears bow ties with some regularity), I object to Raab’s tie-hatred!Ties are sharp. And bow ties are cool. WFNY_DPI worked at a regional chain grocery store in Wooster growing up, and I am not lying when I tell you that Gallagher (I believe it was Gallagher 2 at this point in time) came into our store, as he was playing a gig in Wooster.Read that last part again, just to let it sink in.I was old enough to know who Gallagher was (because my dad was cool enough to let me watch stupid gimmicky comedians when I was little), but man… to see him–in Wooster, OH–buying produce and walking slowly hoping to be recognized… wow. The_Real_ShamrockI served a six month sentence in Wooster and I wish it had been an incarceration even though it felt like it!Gallagher and his melons! Harv 21You do not exist. People who get it into their heads to switch to bow ties go there forever and do not look back, even one day a week. I know, I’ve asked every one I’ve ever met. Responses as to why (why switch, why stay) are uniformly vague and evasive, but the truth is the truth: bow ties are forever.I’m sorry, I do not believe in you. Whoever programmed this BenRM, time for a recall and installation of a program upgrade. http://waitingfornextyear.com/ Scott @ WFNYI too wear ties and have worn a bow tie—the same one, twice—but almost always wear them only when I have to for work or at a wedding, etc. Ben FrambaughI only ever wore a bow tie at Prom (and that was 16 years ago.) Then again, I don’t like wearing ties either. The only times I have ever worn a tie was when in military dress uniform and when job hunting. BenRMlol. frankly, I’d wear them more if I could tie them better. I still stink at it and it takes too long, so it means I wouldn’t be able to sleep in as much.
