Reader Sean, a county employee who NEVER reads the Burgh Blog on county time, emailed me to let me know that you can bid on autographed celebrity ties over at the County’s website all to benefit the Kane Centers.

In addition to ties by Jay Leno, Rod Stewart, Ted Kennedy, and Jimmy Kimmel, some that are available:

1. The Chin’s tie:

My bid: $.05

2. Bob Casey’s tie:

Which is every bit as boring as you thought it would be.

My bid: $zzzzzz.zz

3. Lukey’s tie:

Do you notice how much smaller Lukey’s caricature is compared to the others? He looks like a little kid wearing his dad’s tie. Awesome.

4. And two ties that can be burned in effigy:

… AFTER they are shat (ding!) upon by your dog.

My bid: $BITE ME!.00

And man alive if Kevin McClatchy’s tie isn’t the ugliest thing since a Britney Spear’s upskirt shot.

Go bid. Tell them PittGirl sent you and that she’d like to know when the Kill All The Pigeons fund raiser will be held because she will donate 1 brazillion dollars to it.

    Did you never hear the word shat before?

    I didn’t find that story you always link to when you use the word all that funny.

    You don’t find me funny 100% of the time?!?!?!?!

    I’ll be sure to try harder for you.

    Because I care.

    Does Ted Kennedy’s tie smell like whiskey?

    Was the mayor’s tie a clip-on?

    Of course. He still needs his dad to tie a real one!
