Sports Tie

Sartorial elegance for when exercising in your corporate gym, playing squash with the boss, out on a lunchtime run with your coworkers, etc. This tie is made from the latest hi-tech breathable fabrics, attaches to the front of your t-shirt or running vest with velcro and comes printed in a range of sporty motifs, athletic legends and wild animals suggestive of speed and energy (allowing you, when you drop your marsupial-themed sports tie to exclaim "Me Kangaroo Sports Tie's Down!").

       I'm a little bit surprised...

       This reminds me of the time that my friend Daniel offered me a sip of his home-made national wine (his home is in Portugal). It was absolutely incredible, but had a quaint and interesting herbal taste about it. He explained that he came about the process for making this particular wine by accident. Apparently, one day on the way home from shopping for brewing ingredients, he dropped the shopping bag. Some herbs he'd also bought became embedded into the slightly porous tin container of local Morello cherries he favoured using in his particular brew. This permeating herbal flavour actually increased within the can - almost as if an active process was at work inside it. So it just goes to show: Thyme-ey Can Grew Dan's Port.

       I know the drink you mean! I picked up a bottle once at a shop in this really small harbour, on the edge of this heathland- based marsupial sanctuary. I've still got the receipt from that tiny Kangaroo Downs port.

       //I'm a little bit surprised...// - did you expect all my ideas to be sensible?

       I'm surprised because it is so similar in name to my own idea as annotated on Mr Calum's tie idea i.e. a play on words derived from Rolf Harris's most excellent song.

       Ah right - yes, that was indeed the inspiration. Proper citation added now (see link).

       Ian and Maxwell - very good. ha ha ha!   

       I live near whipsnade zoo where, as well as all the caged and enclosed exhibits, a good number of non hazardous beasts walk freely around the park.   

       Most numerous of these is the Wallaby. Originally an australian animal, whipsnade (here in good old england) have kept so many of these for so long that theirs can be considered almost a sub-species. There are hundreds and hundreds, a proper population, rather than an artificial collection of individuals. In fact there are so many that occasionally the zoo organises barbeques where a few of the more badly behaved animals are cooked and served up to the punters.   

       The taste is not at all what you'd expect, dark in colour and almost like game bird, almost like bacon. A sort of Limey-Kangaroo-Brown-Pork.

       Or one could speculate on the outcome of a scheme involving a number of containers, presided over by a person of wisdom, which all goes wrong when the sage drinks their alcoholic contents... Stymied cans, guru downs port. (profound apologies)

       One could indeed. In fact, my friend from Thailand, who is rather shy (positively meek, in fact) speculated on this very point and found it extremely irritating: he said it angered him to...oh what's the use? Let's stop this madness while we can.
