HF,

I believe that is what mine is as well.

yeah...no... little T can keep that pyrrhic victory. I organised one challenge and it's simply too much work.

I knew there was a reason I liked it! biggrin.gif

 

It's a much more versatile than a brighter/truer red would be, IMO.

FTR, RDiaz was the rulemaker here. I just chimed in to keep us on track with the stated guidelines.

Oh. Yeah. That's what I meant. D'oh.

given SWDs penchant for thumbs, its no surprise they would be more likely to vote than most MCers

Alright Clag. Time to come up with a new challenge. T's toe's got him outta the game. biggrin.gif

Hold up. Waitamin... I probably will still be able to participate.


Any suggestions for the next challenge?

I was indeed expecting to see some more red and also lavender/mauve, which were explicitly permitted. Those were the most versatile allowed colors smile.gif

 

As for suggestions for the next challenge, I'm afraid I have none to give... kinda uninspired.

best coordination of boxers/skivvies/tighty-whities with your tie and pocket square.

or, building off of what we just did, best non-standard colored suit. no blues or grays. dust off the leisure suits.
