29 May 16

Tomorrow marks the 108th birthday of Mel Blanc, who voiced scores of characters for Looney Tunes® and Hanna-Barbera® cartoons, notably Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Yosemite Sam, Sylvester the Cat, Tweety Bird and Barney Rubble. My tie celebrates Bugs and Daffy and Taz, with Tweety Bird on the tail. The basketballs are also very appropriate for these days in the NBA playoffs where the Golden State Warriors and the Oklahoma City Thunder are tied 3-3 for the Western Conference, preparing for the championship finals against the Eastern Conference-winning Cleveland Cavaliers.
