Something funny to say if you're at a furry convention and someone comes up and asks you what sort of gathering it is:

"Oh, it's a Rubik's Cube convention. Unfortunately everybody's forgotten to bring theirs."

Or if you have a Rubik's Cube, like I usually do, you add "...except me."

KT is a hoopty frood

So, why do you always have a Rubik's Cube? It's not like a towel, or anything...

I like having something to twiddle.

Also I like to practice different solution methods.

It is to him what steel marbles are to Captain Queeg in The Caine Mutiny.

You are totally nuts, you know? Which is probably the reason I like you.

And then if he asks about all the people wearing animal costumes, you say, "If you forget to bring your cube, they make you wear one."

Optional: Follow this up with, "Where's your cube?"

Your icon reminds me, there is now a new Alvin & The Chipmunks CD, this time using models from the movie on the cover. I guess no more 2-D versions.

Well, in the movie itself, they looked better than in the image used on the movie poster, where they looked too evil and rat-faced. I guess their design was tweaked during production.

(Anyway, I knew them originally from the '60s-era TV series, not the '80s one.)

And this album is better than the movie soundtrack! More good songs, and less hizzip-hizzop dreck like "Ain't No Party". And I see they have the theme from the '80s show on there! I didn't watch that, but the theme is nice.

Oops, and your link got munged; it should be this:

To only be said with maniacal gleam in eye. If the person hesistates for a while, motion to a nearby furry (any will do, but one in fursuit is better) and say "Larry! Get the suit for our guest!"

I'm reminded of a seriously-Goth sysadmin friend in Australia whose business occupied the fifth floor of the office block. Daily she had to share the elevator with assorted bankers, advertising-types and accountants who occupied floors 1-4.

Once, she was asked "what do you people *do* up there?"

Suggested answers included "We're from the Bureau of Death. Enforcement Divison" and "We train German Shepherds for pornographic movies".

I can see Charles Addams drawing that. But only up to the point of the guy asking the question. He'd leave the answer to the reader's imagination. :}
