AN INFORMATIVE SKIT

(Please consider staging this short skit to teach con workers and volunteers to be aware of this very common, yet dangerous, situation.)

SCENE: A COMIC AND/OR GAMING CONVENTION.  MR. GOODMAN IS SITTING AT HIS BOOTH BEING IMPORTANT.

ENTER BILLY.

BILLY: Oh boy!  A comic (gaming) convention!  I sure can’t wait to have intelligent, in-depth discussions on comics (games) with my peer group who share my utter devotion to our subculture!

MR. GOODMAN: Well, hello Billy!  Would you like some free booth swag?

BILLY: I sure would, Mr. Goodman!

MR. GOODMAN: I thought so, Billy.  Are you having fun at this convention?

BILLY: I am, Mr. Goodman!  All this good will and respect for our source material is just making me thing WOWEE!

MR. GOODMAN: That’s good, Billy!  Just be careful.

BILLY: Why, Mr. Goodman?  Are you worried I’ll spend all my money in one place?

MR. GOODMAN: No, Billy.  You need to be careful, because this con, like many others, has been infiltrated by FAKE GEEK GIRLS.

But, as I occasionally do, I told myself: Amazon, it could have been worse.

They could have made a Twilight-based Magic: The Gathering expansion.

Allow me to show the horrors that would have come of such a thing:

And what’s a Magic set without a ridiculously overpowered card?  Hmmm?

Oh, and since Stephenie Meyer has to be directly involved in EVERYTHING relating to her series, she gets a card as well:

So remember, folks.  A MMORPG is bad.  But it could have been MUCH, MUCH WORSE.
