In related news, Anthrocon's back in Pittsburgh this weekend.

The second or third year it was here, I nearly ended up getting in a fistfight on the street with a bondage raccoon, because he thought I was staring at him. Which, in fairness, I probably was, since he was dressed like a bondage raccoon.

Those sentences are all in English yet in many ways are completely incomprehensible to me. Fortunately a quick Google search for "Antrhocon" proved quite enlightening.
