    It's an interesting conundrum. On one hand, all votes are equally valid, and in general I'm more curious about the thoughts of the SWD crowd than I am MC (as of them I am well aware). And FC has always has been a bit of a popularity contest (as well as a photography contest...thank god Victor never played).

    On the other hand, Stitchy banked on well earned goodwill and name recognition (in an MC fit). I don't think his outfit appealed to SWD sensibilities any more than those who had been in the lead for most of the voting.

    Regardless, it's not going to be an ongoing problem. The SWD vote will only be garnered by familiarity for so long, and in the end, I think their input and participation is worth a normalization period.

    Besides, last time Butler won we were assaulted with a bevy of crotch shots (best fitting pants challenge). So we have SWD to thank for sparing us that.

    ----

    99% sure i am going with GP/PoW for this weeks FC. open to suggestions, but i was sad about not doing it last time and someone would have to come up with an insanely good idea for me pass up on GP/PoW again.

    No hate Stitchy. I voted for you. And I approve of the SW&D vote. And I definitely want them to vote next week, and the weeks after.

    But now I'm curious about your dick response. Is it "neener neener neenerz"? Because it should be.

    Enjoy your challenge, gentlemen, though I'll only be able to enjoy it in retrospect, as I'll be traveling tomorrow night, and not be back to civilization (such as it is) until late Feb. 8th. I hope to see a great variety of GP/PoW ensembles upon my return.

    lol

    As stated, Glen Plaid or Price of Whales is the challenge.

    Suit or SC is defo ok, and Im considering allowing GP or PoW pants to be sufficient for entries as well.

    new thread in the morrow with all the deets.
