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!").

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.
