In Transformer-ese, isn't that like calling it f*ck-a-con?

Or do one big poo in the morning and another one in the afternoon. I bet they weren't even excited by and then subsequently disappointed by Star Wars Prequels. Or have a glass full of spare change near their beds. That they don't have.

I did not know that this was a negative word towards women in England until after the online media release. Trust me I would have rethought it. It is too late now.

You could cover yourself and make it an East Ender's convention.

I only knew it was a negative word in TF-ese. Maybe next year you could call it Mega-Con. And the year after, Galva-Con.

That'd lead to later names like: Pirana-Con, Constructi-Con, Combati-Con, Stunti-Con, Preda-Con, Terror-Con, Sea-Con, Monster-Con, Mini-Con, Omni-Con, etc.

Which, by following in the theme, would then exclude names like Ia-Con. :(

Since the Slagacon website is down i thought I would give out a little info on the convention. Slagacon is my answer to the Mid-west's drought of TF conventions. Botcon was founded by two people from Indiana. I guess you might say Indiana was pampered to some great conventions. The last two years and even before that, I have not been able to go to Botcon, so I decided to have my own. My goal with Slagacon is to make a convention that is not only fun and enjoyable but also affordable. The prices for Slagacon are very reasonable. It is free to kids 10 and under, 11 to 15 years old is only $1.00 and anyone 16 or older is only $2.00. We are going to have a dealer's room and six different contests. These contests include: Art, Kitbash, Costume; G1 knowledge, Timed Combiner Assembly as well as a TF karaoke contest. These contests do cost a little extra $3.00 per entrant per event. Every attendee will be able to place their votes on the art, kitbash and costume contest. We will also be giving away door prizes every 30 minutes. Just a little info and there will be more info to come as the convention draws closer.

Sounds fun. Bring it to northwestern Washington and I'm there.
