Ugly Ties and Flying Humans! | FFFW #65


They say Red Bull gives you wings… I don’t know about that. Normally it gives me the shakes and a case of heartburn. What I do know is that on this day in 1903, the Wright brothers took some wings into the sky and flew the first “flying machine.” Being an Ohio boy, I appreciate the day that a couple of other Ohio boys changed the world. Fun fact though, the first flight only lasted 12 seconds. That’s it! However, those 12 seconds were enough to inspire them and to show that the impossible was indeed possible. Pretty cool, right? Just think, I’ve spent way more time than that just typing this intro and it’s way less impactful. Like in one-sixth of a minute they changed the way we travel and I’ve spent five minutes trying to think what GIF should go with this. Oh well, I guess it’s al-WRIGHT!

Ugly Christmas Ties

For men in the funeral profession, ties are a big deal. And I know around this time of year, people are wearing ugly Christmas sweaters, but what about some ugly Christmas ties? I scoured the internet and found the best ones. Maybe you can get some inspo for the big weekend coming up!
