Walking down Smithfield Street, see these two guys in front of me. One has fuzzy ears and one has a big fuzzy tail.

Sometimes … I just don’t want to know.

    The furries have arrived. Pittsburgh is hosting ANTHROCON 2006, which bills itself as the “WORLD’S LARGEST ANTHROPOMORPHICS CONVENTION.” Anthropomorphism applies human characteristics to robots, cartoons, and animals.

    To the unintiated, anthro’s are people who like to bump uglies with mascots.

    Oh, I didn’t know they were coming to town.

    I consider myself pretty weird and that sounds a bit weird to me. Now I want to run outside and see if I see any of the convention participants walking around. Off to do research into this to learn more.

    It’s just the beginning, kids….they “kick-off” tomorrow, and there will actually be a group of them parading through town on Sunday……

    Money quote: “Pittsburgh is steeped in Furry tradition. The Wizards of FurryMuck used to live here, and much of that virtual world was created during their stay. You may even recognize some of the local names, such as Squirrel Hill.” Off to google W of FM.

    I do believe that CSI did an episode with Furries.

    Oh god.. not furries. Not here.

    I’ve been reading about them for over a year. Basically most of them end up fucking each other while still in costume. It’s rather disturbing actually.

    I’m sorry, I just don’t get it. If I want to see squirrel’s fucking I’ll go into my back yard.

    I was on Marty Griffin (KDKA 1020) talking about the furries, he was asking what it was and I had a decent convo with him on what it is.

    I’d like to know in a nutshell how you explained it to him.
