I didn’t stay up for The Situation last night so I just found out about this. Tucker Carlson has dropped the bow tie!!!
If you’ve watched the show before, you may have noticed that I look different. I’m not wearing a bow tie. This is odd for me. I’ve worn a bow tie on television every night for the past six years, and for 15 years off-air before that. Since I was in the 10th grade. I like bow ties. I’ve certainly spent a lot of time defending them.
But from now on, I’m going without. No ties at all.
No, I didn’t lose a bet. It is not a political statement. I didn’t ditch the bowtie as a protest, or in solidarity with any oppressed group. It’s not a ratings ploy. I just decided I wanted to give my neck a break. A little change is good once in a while. I feel better already.
So to the three of you who watched for the bowtie, I’m sorry. To the rest of you, who don’t take a position on neckwear one way or the other, we now return to our regularly scheduled programming.
