Burning a Missionary Tie

In my day, missionaries did all sorts of weird things to commemorate certain milestones. One of the more popular traditions was the burning of a tie at various points on their mission. (I'm not sure if the sister missionaries did anything comparable although I doubt they were quite as excited about burning things--after all, once a Boy Scout, always a Boy Scout.)

I was always too practical to do anything like that (maybe I'd want to wear that tie again) so I never ran into the issue Elder Steele seems to be facing in today's strip.
