Do you feel crushed by the harsh
expectations of a cut-throat industry
that's eating away at your last pretenses of
a personal life? Fed up with the hypocrisy
of your business contacts, and your
bosses' iron-fisted incompetence?
Get even with everyone by destroying the
chokehold on your
neck: your tie.
To get maximum value from this delicious
process, one should acquire the services
of a professional. Your local
neighbourhood Tie Breaker will help you
select the means of annihilation most
closely suited to your particular profile
A respectable Tie Breaker's arsenal
includes stretching racks, a stove with
glowing coal and grim-looking pliers,
sulfuric acid in various concentrations and
a scaled-down iron maiden.

||I've been to a bar where they cut your tie in half and hang it on the wall, so there are half-ties all over the place.
||Who pays for the ties? Why would a tie-buyer agree to any of this?
||I like my ties. Indeed, they are my way of venting against the corporate angst thing.
||Just don't tie your ties too tight.
