In April of this year, the Honey Badgers plan to put on a booth at the Calgary Comics and Entertainment Expo! We plan to infiltrate nerd culture cunningly disguised as their own. Each of us has been carefully crafting a persona of nerdiness through decades of dedication to comics, science fiction, fantasy, comedy games and other geekery, waiting for this moment, our moment to slip among the unaware. Once there we will start distributing the totalitarian message that nerd and gamer culture is… perfectly wonderful just as it is and should be left alone to go it’s own way.

That’s it folks.

As men’s issues advocates and defenders of creator’s rights to create unmolested, that’s what we have to say to the nerds and geeks and gamers. You are fantastic as you are, carry on.

Yep, in today’s political climate that’s considered an extremist position. Just letting creative communities create; consumers consume what they want; and gamers get down to the business of vidya without being judged.

So if you share our vision of a world in which nerds and geeks and gamers roam free and unfettered, help us spread that message by throwing a few shekels our way to attend the con.

The following badgers and badger-friends will be attending:

Karen Straughan(Girl Writes What)

Mike Stephenson(DoctorRandomercam)

Alison Tieman(TyphonBlue)

Sage Gerard(Victor Zen)

HANNAH HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY FUNDED!

ANNA HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY FUNDED!

THE DOGE HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY FUNDED!

NAUGHTY NERDESS HAS BEEN UNLEASHED!

Here’s a rundown of the total budget:

Plane Tickets: 5230$

Transport: 1500$

Food and Supplies: 2800$

Housing: 1000$

Merchandise: 2000$

Shipping/Transaction fees: 1000$

Tickets: 720.00

Parking: 150.00

Total(for 8 people): 14400.00$

If the total cost of this trip is 14400.00 why are we only asking for 8200$? Because Karen, Alison and Mike are making up the shortfall by covering 6200$ of the cost of the event!

Here’s a preview of the snazzy badger ace t!

If you’re a Canadian having trouble donating, please choose the contribution level you want, add 10% shipping and handling and pay the full amount here. If you want to give without a reward, go here and enter in the desired amount.

Thank you so much for helping advance the cause of leaving people the fuck alone.

Please note that all rewards will be shipping after the convention and will take time to process. Also the total fundraised will periodically reduce as I(Alison) purge the cancelled pledges. If you want the total amount in your country’s currency, please multiply the cart total by the current exchange rate(minus 2%) rather than submitting your order to paypal.

      I apologize for not seeing this comment till now! Thanks for your patience.

      If you want the first three things, you can purchase the 25$ level to get them.

  1. I am looking at the expo list and don’t see your name on it. Did you get a booth or not and under what make is it?
    I would like to get my Detroit shirt signed by GWW but the only day I might be able to make it is Thursday because that is the only day left for tickets.

      We will be available at our booth for all four days. We’re in stealth mode due to concerns about *ahem* people of a certain persuasion deciding to hassle the con organizers over having us space lepers at the show.

      I will be updating our name as soon as we have the fundraiser vid up! (Although I don’t know when it will change because the con organizers have to do stuff on their end.)

  2. The “pay what you like” packages are not working.

    Clicking the 50+ item will open the “Step 1” window with “sultry vocal stylings” selected, but showing the price of the previous item you clicked. 20+ will show the 50+, and 5+ will show the 20+ item (with the correct price for the displayed item).

    When you actually select the 5+ item, nothing is added to the cart. The 20+ item will add some $5 item to the cart (“Variation #100”), and the 50+ item will add some $20 item to the cart (“Variation #123”). Both of the latter increase international shipping cost, although no items should be shipped.

      Hi Markus, thanks for the heads up.

      I’ll try to get that fixed but this plugin seems to have it’s odd little quirks. Did you want the two shirts you selected or just to donate that amount without a reward?

  3. Glad I heard of this before it was over – only have 5 dollaroos to spare cause money’s tight, gotta help my parents out financially nowadays, but I eagerly await the happenings of the con. A winner is you.
