    How did he depict Asians exactly that would cause such outrage?

    I've only been to one con, so I don't have a ton of crazy stories, but my favorite thing that happened was at the Marvel TV panel from the last NYCC. They announced season 2 of the Avengers cartoon, and men in their 20s and 30s were jumping up and screaming in excitement over it. I can somewhat understand the excitement if they were announcing it as a new show, (although it'd still be odd considering their age), but freaking out over the news that the show is returning when there was no cancellation announcement? That strikes me as weird.

    And I guess something happened to Thor at the end of season 1 because he wasn't in the premiere of season 2 (we were given an advanced screening), and this guy in his mid-20s next to me and my friend kept asking us in a panic "Where's Thor?!" as if Thor were his child and he just lost him at the mall.

    The weed smelled pretty fucking good.
    Ha ha ha ha ha I was there for that one.

    I saw Amanda Conner propose to Jimmy Palmiotti by showing him her underwear with "marry me" on the butt.

    This guy asking Dan Didio when Amethyst was going to come back (this was about 5 or 6 years ago):

    Uh, I can't share all of them. But here's a couple fun ones . . .

    Partying with Andy Milinokis for about 48 hours and watching him relentlessly fuck with Nikolai Volkoff.
    Watching Lou Ferigno be a douche bag for two days about table space.
    The French woman from Lost asking me directions because she was . . . Lost.
    The infamous Bob (see Yirmumah) playing piano and singing in the hotel lobby like it's a nightclub.
    Some complete stranger breaking a beer bottle at me because I said some girl was hot and because I was married and thereby didn't love and appreciate my wife.
    Watching a woman in a wheelchair being rolled out of a resaurant laughing hysterically, the person who was pushing her letting go, then, without the people she was with noticing, her wheelchair continuing to roll off a level area and to a steep grade. Because she had been hysterically laughing, nobody noticed it transitioned to her panicing hysterically and that she wasn't supposed to be rolling past everybody. Someone stopped her just before she rolled into traffic and a car went by. It was one of the most absurd things I've ever seen and was followed by two straight hours in the restaurant by uncontrollable laughter that often breaks uncomfortable situations.

    Um... I don't have too many. Luckily, I've managed to avoid some very awkward scenarios with the few cons I've been to.

    I think some dude had Terry Moore sign every single card in a SiP card set at Pittsburgh Con. I felt bad for Moore, but it looked like he trucked through it, anyway.

    Some girl at a Marvel panel at Fan Expo had her hand up to ask a question, and, when one of the panelists said something like "the lovely lady in the back" while pointing to her, she very awkwardly said she'd never been referred to as lovely before and then rambled something about her father. I think she was trying to make it a joke, but there was a pretty solid feeling of discomfort in the room after that.
