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

CarCarll captured the scene outside the Park Plaza around 11:30 a.m., when fire alarms went off, forcing the evacuation of guests and attendees at the annual Anthro New England furry convention.

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

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

But he was a male cat, so I named him after the husband of Elsie, the Borden cow. I am a different species, but we share the same gender.

But always adorable.

Thanks for the clarification.

...and far be it from me to judge. But I just don''t get this.

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 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.

He didn't say that you shouldn't enjoy it.

He just doesn't get it.

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.

Tim, could you tell us a story about a bridge.

...about some woman that took her dog to a furry convention. Apparently the dog was a huge hit with the furries. She was the toast of the convention. She just made a bit of a wrong assumption about what a furry was. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/dog-goes-to-furry-convention_us_58e...

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