Your Neck-tie May Harm Your Brain

Neck-tie and Brain Health Gerald L. Kyle Healthyoldgoat.com   Beware the handsome neck-tie Behind its pretense of dignity and grace It may cause your brain to atrophy What about Dementia, Alzheimer’s and such? And what other mischief   I like my neck-tie so fine It makes me into a handsome dude Like a gentleman of high degree And it lends me some dignity   But sometimes in the quiet of the night My brain sends signs that don’t delight Hey Dude!
