Our travel-obsessed brother site is currently running a poll to determine the "most masculine city." It's pitted two titans of the automotive world, Detroit (where they're thought up, designed and once in a while, manufactured) and New York City (where they're pundited, criticized and marketed from), obviously as two of our editors are from the respective metropolitan areas, it's time for a round of Point-Counterpoint between our Chief Editor Mike Spinelli (representing New York City — or roundabouts) and Associate Editor Ray Wert (representing Detroit — or roundabouts). Hit the jump for the IM
battle back n' forth.
Wert: Hey, Mike — Gridskipper's running a poll on which city's most masculine — Detroit or NYC. I figure you're going to stand up for the pussywhipped masses of the world and pick NYC over a red-blooded, working man town like the D.
Wert: You heard me — Detroit's a town of hard working auto guys, real meat and potatoes types — and New York City? Well — it's filled with legions of metrosexual Manhattanites who are too worried about what they're wearing and how they look, rather than the more important stuff in life.
Wert: Spinelli, you ignorant slut...
Wert: Yeah? What you got to say to that?
Spinelli: Wert — isn't this you rocking the Burberry scarf?
Wert: Asshole. Did I mention New Yorkers are assholes?
Spinelli: Like that was even necessary to mention.
