Tie Tacks for Creepers (APAD)

The 301st picture in "A Picture A Day" series.

Mason enjoys making himself tie tacks. He comes up with random, weird ideas for the designs and sayings. His most recent tie tack idea came from the album cover of a Supergrass compilation. One of the buttons on the cover said, "Are you one too?" I really don't know what that means, but Mason liked it and decided to replicate it as a tie tack. He had to abbreviate the sentence, though, because it was way too long otherwise ...

So, this is what he came up with:

RU12 = Are you one too?

However, that's not the message I read. Instead, I saw this:

RU12 = Are you twelve?

As soon as I told Mason my interpretation of his tack, his face contorted into one of sheer terror. Yeah ... probably not a question you want to be asking ... EVER! Needless to say, the unfinished RU12 tie tack sits in the scrap metal drawer in the basement, never to be worn.

But, hey, if there's ever a market for pervy tie tacks, we're gonna make bank on this one!
