Getting cocky

You know, yes, Rooster ties are old, and they're not always easy to find, but when you get right down to it, they are still basically just skinny strips of fabric, and previously owned skinny strips of fabric, no matter how snazzy, should not cost $150.00.

Also on the Rooster tie forefront, I've noticed the number of hits I've been getting on the phrase "Rooster tie" has been increasing. Today I got three hits in a row (from three different domains, so, not the same person trying different searches) on it. Was there a recent article about them somewhere?

Don't know about a recent article; what I want to know is how this place/person/business entity has 250 of them! "One of the best Rooster ties in this collection of 250 Rooster ties" is what it said in the description.

However, in some of the other descriptions ties were described as "Rooster-style" -- so perhaps not even the real deal.

To that end - i know it's unlikely, but is it possible that it's $150 for the whole collection of 250 ties? that would be way too inexpensive, of course, but the text is just ambiguous enough to wonder.

and yeah - you have to get pretty high-end to find a new tie costing $150.

Yes you've heard it hear first. Martha Stewart had some one on her show on Friday who own greater than 365 of them so he doen't have to wear one more than one day a year.

Great, now I've got more people to compete with.
