Ways to Kill Time Today: Change the Ties on the Cops Who Arrested IMF Chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn

New, 1 comment

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

As the story of IMF Chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulted and sodomizing a hotel maid at the Sofitel in midtown Manhattan unfolds, the French are occupying themselves in, well, different ways than the American media—and we're not talking about covering up for Strauss-Kahn's past indiscretions.

Check out Ties4Cops, a goofy site that allows you to choose and change the neckwear of Strauss-Kahn's arresting officers. Novelty ties superimposed on cops? We're in.
