On May 3rd 2008, artists Robin Hewlett and Ben Kinsley invited the Google Inc. Street View team and residents of Pittsburgh's Northside to collaborate on a series of tableaux along Sampsonia Way. Neighbors, and other participants from around the city, staged scenes ranging from a parade and a marathon, to a garage band practice, a seventeenth century sword fight, a heroic rescue and much more...
Well. That makes it a lot less funny, doesn't it.
I hope you're happy.
"Members Askarus and Twolf of the medieval battle society Angaron (Pittsburgh's local chapter of Dagorhir Battle Games) engaged in swordsmanship and hand-to-hand combat in a grassy 'battle field' at the corner of Sampsonia Way and Federal Street."
Just because you know you're at the Ren Faire doesn't make your presence ironic.
Foam swords and bad armor does not swordsmanship make.

there's no furries here.
You are mistaken.
look up and you'll find an invasionary fleet of flying saucers led by a giant T-Bone Steak.
Yeah, it's pretty much like that.
are the ships depositing, or reclaiming the warriors?
Just looking on and passing judgement on humanity.
Are those doilies on a windshield?
I believe they're yarmulkes.
Weren't these guys also at DG last week?
Not all LARPers are furries, though Japanese-inspired LARPers are probably a little closer than most. :P
Oh, well then that's a douchebag of a different color entirely!
Next you'll be telling me how inappropriate it is for me to use my "mpegs" tag to describe animgifs, or that mannequins with speakers in their boobs are not technically "robots". I am all a-twitter in anticipation at your editorial pique!
You realize that all you've done here is indicate your position on the chart, right?
If we simply apply the "Faust Clown Theorem", we'll see that indeed...they are furries.Armed, and apparently militant furries to boot. (this new turn of events needs to be noted as a cautionary tale...tail? No...tale.)
Send them all back I say.
"Faust Clown Theorem" returns zero google matches - I really wanted there to be something there...
The Google, it tells me nothing.
What IS the "Faust Clown Theorem".
There was a proposed postulate that states:"If you hook up with someone dressed in cat ears and a tail on Halloween, you've basically had sex with a Furry."While arguments can be made, that because this isn't a 'lifestyle' or it's a one off, you actually haven't had carnal knowledge of furry, it's countered with a second statement.
"If you have sex with someone in clown makeup at anytime, sorry to say, you've fucked a clown."
It's a work in progress.
If I understand correctly, you are saying that because some LARPers dress up as animals (aka, goblins) then all LARPers are furries?
Does this also apply to folks who do dragon dances?
I'm going to say "yes" to the first part. Keeping in mind this is a 'work in progress'
Second:Dragon dances are simply a great big furry daisy chain.You'll never see a Chinese New Year parade the same again.
Is it wrong for me to have a sense of humor about my own nerd genre?
...then where are the zombies?
An excellent point, my good man.
Ummm... they were all zombies.
All of this is a block from my house. I was sweeping up zombie bits for days afterwards.
Only tangentially related, but:
