I... I don't have a defense. At all. I have literally done everything in my power to make myself look like a Thing, and I did it unintentionally. The only upside is that I screwed this up early, instead of late in the game where it would cost us a victory. I'm voting for The Outsider, because I have absolutely no idea who the Thing actually is.
I'm not a Thing. That's all I can say.
