Dearest faithful friends, allies, and dedicated French fry enthusiasts,

Okay. This. Is. Epic.

Our quest to determine the greatest style of French fry has reached its final stage. 10 fries entered. Only one will remain.

The two semi-final champions who will fight for the title of 🍟🏆WINNER OF THE FRENCH FRY SMACKDOWN🏆🍟 are the two following styles:



Conservative or liberal, socialist or capitalist, democracy or dictatorship, raider or defender, no matter the background, we can agree to put aside our differences in favor of this greater good.

Vote here by clicking the link below:

--> page=poll/p=125855 <--

And share it with your friends and family:

In the audition round, 260 people from across NationStates chose the top 4 styles of French fries, which made it to the semi-final round. We surpassed that in the semi-final round, where 524 cast their vote for the top of the top four. Now the top two remain.

Thank you very much and may the best fry win!

Massachusetts is the best.

Tricell Incorporated, here!

Looks like another failed start-up. :)

Interesting paper. Kind of like the format, but the contents have no real bearing upon me or my empire, but it is still a good read. Thanks.

As for Massachusetts being the best. I like Michigan more than Massachusetts. So Massachusetts cannot be the best. I had not even mentioned the other 48 states. Mind you, it isn't the worst either. That goes to Mississippi or Wyoming. Not sure which. Had not been in Utah or Nevada long enough to tell how they rank, but they may be worse than Wyoming. And then there is New Jersey. :)
