One of the fun surprises of the Global Atheist Convention is that, after a long day of shrill talks from rabidly militant atheists (…and a few accommodationists, shock horror), the evening sessions are all about the humor. So last night we got The Chasers, and I also got to meet Nonstampcollector, who showed this video to the group.
In case you’re wondering what he looks like, it’s kind of amazing: Nonstampcollector has a face that is a perfect circle, two tiny eyes, and only two expressions. So don’t knock the crude animation style, that’s simply an accurate rendition of his people.
Oh, and after the official events, I stayed up way too late with Bride of Shrek, Rorschach, Kel, Wowbagger, Chris Nedin, and a rotating cast of other convention attendees. I’m getting way too old for this.
Pictures of these mysterious rascals will follow. Some of the photographers in the group looked like they’d had far too much Australian ambrosia last night, and although they promised to send me pictures, they haven’t come through just yet.
Oh, also: we’re sharing the convention space with a meeting of body-builders. It is a little surreal to stroll by all the protein supplements and people with giant necks and bulky bodies to join my fellow nerds. I’m tempted to taunt them with math problems, but I’d rather not get wedgied and swirlied.
