Why I love the medieval conference at Kalamazoo

This led to innumerable hilarities as women who couldn’t have got a date in a men’s prison rejected the advances of ugly men who felt they were slumming.

Herr Doktor Professor Boethius von Korncrake visits Kalamazoo…

    Snicker, that is an image I would rather not see…

  2. “and of the details of the unsightly couplings of middle aged flesh.” LOL!

  3. It’s a gas… it’s also one reason I’m not even slightly bitter about not going for my doctorate. It’s like they’re selecting genetically for people without lives… Not all of them: I’ve met some VERY cool folks there… but they are distinctly in the minority.

    Dorm rooms are every bit as bad as advertised, tho. It’s fun.

  4. ROFL

  5. Let’s not even mention the odd, damp smell. Oh, yeah, and the shared bathroom with the other dorm room (if you want the “authentic” feel of cheap dorm life). I haven’t been to K’Zoo in two years, but those dorm rooms are exactly as von Korncrake describles… minus the boozing Irish priest.

  6. “describles”? Okay, off to bed with me.

  7. Heh, good stuff there! Although nobody died – which leads me to believe that a German Inposter wrote that tripe!

    Recently watched five or six german films… somebody ALWAYS dies… or should have. Heheh

    I just read the whole thing and damn that was funny. The comment about the Communist Study gatherings starting with speechs about revolution and degenerating into a Vodka brawl with the African and Cubans fighitng off the Russian students was hysterical.

    Speaking of which, my girlfriend and I watched the movie Snatch this last weekend. Now I know what Boris the Blade was muttering after he got run over by the car (an unforseen benefit of having a Ukranian girlfriend).

    Its unprintable, so you’ll have to ask me for the side translation via email.

  9. The image that I brought back from my journey to that conference was 100 beer-sotted professors and associated geeks all attempting to dance the Macarena together…….

    Sometimes, deep in the night, that image comes back to me and I awake, covered in sweat and shaking.

  11. Mike, don’t ask him about YMCA…

  12. Hey now, the court order said I cannot discuss that situation, as you well know. Besides, the fact that I cannot get within 400 miles of another YMCA has nothing to do with this.

    YOU are the one wearing dead moose russet colored skins to social functions. Never mind the fact that every time I hear the Macarena I start talking in tounges and hallucinating. I blame you for that.

    THIS is why I swore “never again” to anything that happened before the age of Gunpowder.

    Yes, but I wear dead moose with SOUL….

    Mike: think “buff coat.” In your period. Sorry…

    But the smell of gunpowder in the morning would have a great healing effect though…

    A big enough BOOM will fix anything. And I am thinking a really big one is in order.

  19. If you blew up the Medieval Conference, you would contaminate the surrounding countryside with enough “geek” to make the place uninhabitable for regular people for centuries.

    Not if I used enough powder…

  21. It’s Kalamazoo, Michigan. You think anybody’d notice?
