I have to say, I found Abhay Koshla's run-down of ComicCon far more hilarious than anything that has happened or will happened at this year's Comicon:
"SATURDAY — 2 pm to 5 pm– PRESS CONFERENCE: Excitedly
declare to bored, cow-eyed onlookers that the fact that people with bad
taste have enough money to purchase art of questionable merit produced
by dull people with limited ambition for the benefit of sinister
corporations means that the “nerds have won.” When asked what has been
won, pause, stare off into the distance, until finally whispering “t-he
pennant… yeah… the pennant… wildcat… Wild….cat….. I’m going to go.”
Reasonably assume that nerds having won means that someone else will be
responsible for my laundry. End up wearing dirty clothes.
SATURDAY — 5 pm to 6 pm — PANEL: HOUSE OF IDEAS:
Invite area youths to ask me questions, but answer every question with
hostility, sarcasm, and condescension, suggesting an out of control ego
wildly inconsistent with any of my actual accomplishments.
SATURDAY — 6 pm to 7 pm — UTA/ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY/TWILIGHT/TAMPAX PARTY: Stand
outside party thrown for the benefit of beautiful, rich
people. Whisper, “But I thought the nerds had won. W-what about Obama?”
into tree trunk.
SATURDAY — 7pm to 12 pm– EISNER AWARDS: Named for
famed third-grade classmate Doug “D-Dog” Eisner, the Eisner awards are
the most prestigious award in my apartment. Win in every
category. Deliver moving, yet boldly subversive acceptance speech to
empty apartment. Halfway through speech, slowly realize that the only
winner is the only person nominated. Award ceremony still lasts five
hours out of obligation to remember elderly cartoonists who have died in
auto-erotic accidents within the last six weeks. End In Memorium
section by screaming, “We’ll miss you most of all, guy who inked two
issues of SCAMP AND THE MUFFIN back in 1932, you crotchety old
pervert.” Scream that loud enough that God finally stops ignoring my
screams. Finally. Finally."
Read the whole thing here, and be sure to stay for Tucker Stone's hilarious evisceration of this week's comics. Is the Stone/Khosla team my favourite way to spend Friday? It sure is, other Kazekage, it sure is.
