It All Goes Down at the Lanes [Sep. 27th, 2007|09:44 pm]
You might've seen the promo poster by now:

It's a clash of the fandoms, settled in an appropriately odd manner. (Civility!)

Perhaps because it has a snazzy poster image (I believe that's the fine work of luckydawolf), this has actually received a bit of attention online.

My paranoid side wonders if it'll be flash-mobbed as a result. Hecklers could ruin the fun. Let's hope no griefers show up (this one excepted) and it's a fair, clean, and goofy competition.

The funniest comment that I saw with respect to this was the following:

"In Iran, we don't have furries and klingons, like in your country. In Iran, we do not have this phenomenon. I don't know who's told you that we have it."

Wow. I dunno who's been spreading rumors about furries and klingons in Iran...

Probably that Iraqi Information Minister guy. Or maybe the Jon Lovitz "yeah, that's the ticket" guy.

I'm sure it'll end up on YouTube. Someone just has to tape it.

[Alopex] The best response I've seen yet is here, comment #1:


My big concern is that no one will be able to get their computers repaired during this time...

Nice. My favorite (off Slashdot IIRC) was: "The furries have to be at a disadvantage with those big paws. I mean, they can't take them off to bowl, right? That'd be breaking character."

I just hope some idiot furries don't start dry humping in the bowling lanes and perpetuating bad press stereotypes :P we need to look good for this event.

This has been posted all over the net and I've seen it even on BoingBoing.net. I'm a little worried that it might get hit with b/ tards or stupid media people. Hopefully, as YappyFox points out, people don't go nuts or acting stupid. I rather see people do this for the fun of it and just relax and enjoy the oddness of it all.
