The Harvey Proctor Collection

Haha. Ha.

Quite what David Adesnik though he was doing wearing a bow tie in public I don't know (this from a man who was quite seriously contemplating the purchase of some two-tone shoes yesterday) but the reaction he got probably ranks somewhere in the top ten list of "it's funny because it's true" moments.

It's a general rule in the political arena that anybody who sports any of the following:

  • A bow tie
  • A colourful waistcoat
  • A pocket watch, especially with ostentatious chain
  • A rosy, grandfatherly visage that immediately puts one in mind of Father Christmas
will almost certainly be deeply, deeply, disturbingly right wing.*

People sporting a combination of three or more of the above almost certainly enjoy sexual spankage in addition to being deeply, deeply etc.

Similarly, left wing people can be identified by the following:

  • Grey shoes
In a related vein, teachers who wear ties emblazoned with cartoon characters will almost certainly be utterly, utterly humourless.

If you encounter any of the following combinations:

  • Cartoon bow tie
  • Grey shoes and cartoon tie
  • Franklin Mint commemorative "limited edition" Father Christmas pocket watch
run far, run fast.

*There is, of course, an exception to every rule, he said in a grovelling fashion.
