    The winner of this challenge will be the person who most accurately mimics another member in terms of some combination of style, pose, etc. While I will stop short of issuing an edict for how a vote should be compiled (though it is unequivocally within my woolly purview), I suggest ample consideration be given for those crafty contestants who select a member with a style markedly different than their own. I conducted a social experiment where I did something similar and pretended to be someone unable to assemble a gaggle of morally bankrupt, scantily-clad blondes within 4.5 seconds of entering the local saloon. If you're looking for inspiration, check out this thread from a couple years back. Congratulations GMMcL! :slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer::slayer: Voting now closed Claghorn as Vox:

    If you were able to pretend not to be able to gather a willing gaggle of hot hoochies and/or freakazoids upon entering a drinking establishment, you should have won the Oscar for best impersonation of a sheep without sheepdip.

    My only concern is how many cruel-but-painfully-accurate parodies of the Crusty Crouch will be spawned by this event - or maybe people will pick the Spoo-Pose? The only problem with imitating His Spoo-ness is acquiring that much Tom Ford in the space of less than a week.

    Sounds like a Photoshop collaborative effort - we're spread out over God's green earth in real life.

    If lots of people do imitate the Crusty Crouch, can I claim that mine is the squat that launched a thousand fits?

    I was thinking about posting one with the Spoo-pose but then realized that could be hard to do.

    Crusty, there are precious few folks my bald pate and I can flatter via imitation. Like it or not, you're firmly on the list. Good news for you: my shoe collection isn't nearly up to the challenge. So you're likely to be spared, from me at least.

    Thanks, GMMcL. It will be interesting to see how people interpret the instructions for this challenge - how much is imitation of another's style, and how much is imitation of their pose (an easier challenge, in my view). For myself, I've no idea who'd I'd imitate in either fashion - whether I could, would, or should. I am sure our most waggish Sheepy already has his fit in mind - and it will be clever and amusing, I am sure.
