Member of Parliament Nadhim Zahawi got a few stern looks and chuckles when his Be Loud Be Clear novelty tie went off in the British House of Commons.

It may have caused a stir, but the cheeky slip-up also stirred up headlines for our friends at Beating Bowel Cancer and their “Be Loud Be Clear” campaign.

Being LOUD is about big, bold fashion statements- like the aforementioned tie or Beating Bowel Cancers rather eye-catching “bum shorts”– and big, loud events.  We think it sounds like a blast!

Interested in getting your hands on a piece of world colon cancer history? Mr. Zahawi’s famous tie has been signed and put up for auction on ebay!

EDIT 01/20:   Mr. Zahawi wrote a blog post about tie-gate!
