Geek-fight!

This is the cutest exchange I have read on TEH INTARWEBS for a long time:

That’s it, people. If you didn’t get your booking confirmed within eighteeen femtoseconds of the starting pistol, you’re screwed. Because there are one hundred thousand hungry people out there who need to attend San Diego Comics Convention in order to walk right past all that comics shit and go straight to sniffing Brandon Routh’s cricketbox, sending bits of themselves to the cast of SERENITY and masturbating ferociously in the men’s stalls while wearing V FOR VENDETTA masks and discounted Hulk Hands.
...it gets better...
Do you smell that? It’s fanboy, son. Nothing else on the world smells like that.

Who is this Ellis guy anyway? He thinks he all that cuz he wroted “Planety”. The facts is, KomiKon is AWESOME becuz people dress up like stuff — but nobody dresses like Warner Ellis, I guess, mister sour grapes.
linkage:
Revenge, eh? So, mister Ellis — (swishes brandy in large glass) — let the games begin, unless they are games of skill, or physical exertion of any kind, or with math. I know the bitter bitter truth, why you are so threatened by my genius, my, class, my big glass of brandy. It’s because you’re so OLD, so terribly terribly OLD, isn’t it!

I mean, what more do you want? Let's list what we have here:

  • geeks
  • artists
  • age
  • beards
  • wordplay like fencing - see the sparks!
  • gay sex
  • brokeback-esque cowboys (maybe?)
  • l33t 5p3ll1ng @ll r0und
  • ...and people filthy perverts falling over themselves to watch

That's history there. Transmet is still the best comic I have read. Sadly, as it was also the first (or second, after Preacher) comic I read, most other comics are just so much lager pissed up against the wall in comparison. Planetary is pretty good, but not quite so gritty as Transmet. Also, the cats don't smoke, nor have two heads. That is just supercool. I think if I were to go tranny (trans-species, that is) I'd head towards a chain-smoking dual-brained feline with a weak bladder. Did I mention that I'm looking forward to old age? I can take up smoking in earnest, you see, claiming that it is a defence against alzheimer's disease (and that recent research is CLEARLY WRONG).
