Craft at the Water Cooler

Yesterday's big hit at the day job was this incredible tie made for a co-worker as a Father's Day gift from his son. We all gave him kudos for wearing it to the office, while laughing uproariously.

This amazing snake tie is created by stuffing a regular tie with polyfill until it's almost busting at the seams and then sewing the ends closed. Googley eyes, a felt tongue, and decorative foam spots are added for good measure. I bet some teacher had a good laugh over the idea of sending all those kids home with these projects.

This fat snake points down toward the family jewels in a not-so-subliminal message to Mommy that a happy Father's Day follows a happy father's night.
