    This week we are going to revisit the Furriners vs Muricans challenge, but with some new rules. 1. Wear whatever you want. 2. If you are living on foreign soil, you may choose to represent your birth country or your country of residence. 3. The fit does not have to be new, pick the photo of yours that you think has been your best fit of all time, whether it be from this week, or 10 years ago, as long as its you, I don't care. Feel free to wear the same fit again if you like and take pics again, but its not needed, and on top of that, if the old pics are better, by all means use those. This will a best of the best challenge, just bring your A game, and represent your people to the best of your abilities. 4. Also, there will be no vetting of fits allowed. You may not post 8 old fits and see what people like best. I will delete such posts. The challenge is in the choosing, so choose wisely. 5. The poll will have 2 options, Furriners or Muricans. Once the winner is decided, I will put up a new poll for 1 day, consisting of the entrants from the winning team only, and that winner will be the representative of the winning team to choose the next Friday Challenge. Paging @edmorel @Doc Holliday @itsstillmatt @voxsartoria @Manton @Cantabrigian @aportnoy, serve your country well and post up! AND GO!!!! Edit - you have til midnight, Saturday the 22nd to post up. HERE ARE YOUR FINAL TEAMS!!! VOAT UP!!!!
    TEAM MURRICA!!!!!
    TEAM FURRINER!!!!!

    Clearly you have never visited Texas. I entered as a Texan. Hence, Team Foreigner.

    I dont know what the eff you are talking about.

    What team am I place you on, Furriner or Amurican? You are going by birth country (Amurican) or residence country (Furriner)?

    The majority of Texans self identify as Texan far more strongly than they do as American. It is sort of a universally accepted half-joke down there that Texas is a separate country.

    I am well aware of the joke, but for the purposes of this thread, Texas is part of Amurica. So once again, are you on team Amurica or team Furriner?

    I'd just like to say I applaud you for instituting rule #4 Stitchy. I always thought these were supposed to be light-hearted contests to get people to show off a bit, and/or think a little more creatively about coming up with appropriate fits to comply with some imposed set of weekly guidelines. Trying on several practice fits through the week to see how they play with the voters before submitting a final pic on a Friday reeks of cheesiness and taking shit far too seriously. Well done lad!

    Hopefully this doesn't reflect too poorly on my fellow Americans.
