Anthrocon 2006 made the local CBS affiliate here in Pittsburgh, KDKA.  Shame the anchorman couldn't pronounce "Anthrocon."

Wonder how many lookie-loos we'll get tomorrow?

ETA: Silverwing's Law #5 (The media will always interview the worst-dressed person at the event. If they can't find the worst-dressed person, they will interview the least-dressed person) translates well to furry fandom: The media will always interview the most strangely-dressed person at the con. If they can't find the most strangely-dressed person, they will interview the most pathetic person. Or, you know, both.

Thing is, Silverwing's Law #5 (The media will always interview the worst-dressed person at the event.

Okay, I guess my problem is that the more I read about this event, the more I think about plushophiles and think it's some sort of a really wierd event where people in fursuits meet and pair up.

Remember...I have no clue what the Con is really like.

There aren't as many fursuiters as the clip would have you believe. There may be some hooking up; there may even be fursuit sex, I don't know. I don't wanna know. I guess it's like every other con -- there are always people dressing in costume, there are always scaryscary fanbois, and there are always people who take the fandom to the extreme. And then there are the rest of us, who congratulate ourselves with the thought "At least that's not me." :-)
