Don't you just hate it when you're right in the middle of something and the fire alarms go off?

Careful, Elmer

you might be sending signals you're not intending to a crowd like that.

Uh ...

I suspect that Elmer is well versed in sending whatever subcultural signals that he intends to.

Neither do I. But I also don

Neither do I. But I also don't get the fun of watching a bunch of people in matching uniform carry a football around, or of dressing in complicated white and black clothing and eating tiny pieces of food from trays. And it certainly confuses me to watch people enjoy drinking beverages that dull their senses, reflexes, and cognition.

Different people have very, very different interests.

Wow, as much as I hate

Wow, as much as I hate professional sports all those things sound fun. Dressing in black and white while eating food is also fun. I’m sorry you are confused and are missing out on many of life’s weird, subtle perks.

Exactly!

It's fine if people enjoy these things! I described them weirdly, using an outside perspective, because that's how people see furry conventions: People dressing up weird and acting weird. They don't actually have internal experience of it.

I've not been to a furry convention either, but I assume it's all about the same kind of camaraderie and shared culture that you get with any of those other things -- not the external trappings.

Did anyone ask?

To each their own, and far be it from you to judge, but you needed to tell us all that you find it weird.

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear.
Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair.
Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy, was he?
