Great tie tack
I recently went to a conference and wore this on my tie. I had multiple people comment on how they were unfamiliar with the school. They asked what I studied there. They were even more confused when I told them I majored in occult literature. Only one other nerd at the conference got it. We had a blast over drinks later. Priceless little ice breaker.
