No longer will neckties just sit passively around people's necks, showing their stripes, paisleys, and abstract Jerry Garcia-designed patterns to the world. They will rise up and take their rightful place next to the great implements of office warfare, like USB-powered foam missiles and passive-aggressive notes left on Tupperware in the break-room fridge. The Laser-Guided Tactical Necktie is one necktie to rule them all.
The tie looks like a tactical vest got together with Don Draper's favorite accessory. It's made from black nylon and has a D-ring, a small removable pouch with a buckle, a webbing system borrowed from the military, and a Class II laser pointer in a removable pouch. Office presentations may never be the same again.
The Tactical Necktie began life as a joke, but I dare you to laugh at it to its face now. It went from ThinkGeek April Fool's gag to $29.99 reality, just in time for Father's Day. Imagine giving this to your dad. You start by saying, "Happy Father's Day! I got you a necktie." Your dad would gamely hide his amused disappointment. Then, he would unwrap the package and realize how he could adorn himself on Monday with a necktie that would become the talk of the office.
A necktie such as this isn't content to dwell solely in the world of cubicles and copiers. Cat owners everywhere will recognize the utility of having one of the greatest cat-annoyance devices ever created always at the ready. And if you're more of a DIY type, then you could take this concept and run with it on your own. A 50-cent necktie from the thrift store, some duct tape, and a cheap laser pointer should get you started.
