Do you get to live test the toilets?   You can find out if it can handle Taco Bell, or if it can handle the monster log.

The World Toilet Summit is my kind of party!

Comic-Con is about as mainstream as you can get with a convention.

It's nice that Tom can take time out of his busy football and supermodel-banging schedule to indulge his passion for furry photography.

All I know is that the dry-cleaners make a fortune removing jizz stains from the insides of fursuits when Yiffcon - er, Anthrocon comes to town.

I live in Pittsburgh.

It's a sad thing to realize that by and large the furries are more well-behaved than attendees of other conventions.

And then he left in a huff after getting beat up by a person dressed as a raven.

Oh, if only they would clean the jizz stains out.

The insides of those things must reek.

I thought you meant the people inside them must reek and the smell goes away when the person takes the costume off.

Actually some of those look like fun.  The Reel one in particular.

I was at an AICPA (accounants) convention in Orlando being held simultaneously with the world wide F-15 users group (lots of guys in military uniforms from all over the world).  Who knew?  I guess every product has a users group.

/The stories I could tell.

I took my parents to Pittsburgh for a weekend last summer, and it happened to coincide with a hellish confluence of Anthrocon furries and "fecking hahdon" Red Sox fans. The only thing more entertaining than explaining furries to my 75-year-old Brazilian dad was to watch the Red Sox fans' children run and hug those dirty, dirty beasts.

Y'all can laugh if you want but a good toilet is gold.  The place I worked years ago had such a great toilet,  Residential model, not an industrial power-jet thing. I noted the make/model so I could get one when the day came that I owned my own home.  That thing was great!  One flush every single time, no matter what I threw at it.  Of course, my house has wall-hung toilets so I can't replace them with The Beast.

As a longtime Anthrocon attendee, I know that there are a few, a very few people who are there for the physical fun of it. The vast, vast majority of the 5000+ attendees though are there because of friendship and art, not to just score a quickie with someone they know online.

I kind of resent the fact that the headline labels me as a 'freak' for attending, but I know that it's not true.

Great link though, I didn't know there was a Wierd Al Yankovic convention.

Um, Anthrocon is weird, but there are others that are weirder.

The one that occurs in Memphis, Memphit Fur Meet, is apparently the one that all the babyfurs (NSFW) like to go to. BronyMedic managed to get roped into working medical/first aid for that convention for a few bucks.

The horrors I saw I will never unsee.

Sure they do.

I think it's a travesty that ALCON doesn't take place at the World Famous Albuquerque Holiday Inn.

If you were in the military, you'd get a medal for that.

Anyone ever been to an Alcon (Weird Al)?  What the heck would that be like?  I like Weird Al but not sure I'm driving 4 hours to see him.

I bet New York is still kicking itself over this given that the convention's name was originally  Albany Anthrocon for a reason.

I was wondering why I hadn't heard about that con in a few years...aparently the sane folks stopped going to that one in favor of Midwest Fur Fest, Oklacon and Furry Fiesta (just two weeks from now in Dallas).
