See You At The Con – #14 in a Series

July 22nd, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 18 Comments

As we prepare to descend into the valley of the uber-geek, we present another sketch of one of our favorite con archetypes, this time drawn by Mike. Many years ago. If you happen to look like this guy, please remember that we kid because we love.

Con 14

HUGE Post-Cyberpunk Fan.
Believes he wields tremendous power on Slashdot.
License plate says “THK1138″ (”X” was taken).
Knows his hands are small, but insists they are his.
Hates Jewel.

    Was it a single accident that severed him at the waist as well as removing his lips? Or was it a series of catastrophes?

    Glad to see that his Old Navy turtleneck sweater has survived, though.

    He looks alot like my boss.
    Minus the cheerful smile.

    Yikes. Do you go to work every day fearing a gruesome death?

    He looks a lot like my mother. Except she has legs.

    John Leguizamo has not aged well.

    It’s like Bosom Buddies-era Tom Hanks overdosed on the nerve tonic that so grotesquely swelled Ken Griffey, Jr.’s jaw.

    My youngest nephew use to own a Mr. Potato Head that looked quite similar.

    After it experienced a short bout with a George Foreman Grill.

    Hey, I hate Jewel too!!

  • 9 Rob T Firefly on Jul 22, 2008 at 10:31 am

    While I wield miniscule amounts of power on Slashdot, I actually sort of like Jewel right up until she says, sings, or writes anything. Then the hate takes over.

    While I have no deep of love of Jewel, I don’t hate Jewel half as much as I hate Dominick’s, and Euro Fresh has been getting on my nerves of late.

    When you get to No. 23 in the Series, I’ll save you the trouble of drawing by sending my head shot.

    Who’s the cat that won’t cop out
    When there’s danger all about?
    Right on!

    Looks like one of those self-help guru.

  • 14 justhesh on Jul 22, 2008 at 3:16 pm

    He looks like a hand puppet.

    …but Osco rules!

    Michael Richards is into cyber punk?

  • 17 ShutterBun on Jul 22, 2008 at 8:44 pm

    I suppose it’s a bit more than telling, that my license plate says “THX 1139″

    Yes Tim I fear for my life on a daily basis, wouldn’t you?
