Yesterday, members of the Westboro Baptist Church arrived in San Diego to protest the moist sin hothouse that is the annual comics, movies n' fun times festival.

If Westboro came to any other liberal convention's doorstep, it wouldn't be unthinkable for every twenty-something in black frames to unload on them like a pack of wolves. But these specific Comic Conners had the good taste and sense of humor to respond with some light-hearted prodding and "Odin is God" signs.

No Parking at Any Time--the ideal Westboro signage.

Lest you think all protesters are humorless, I have memory of a Joey Ramone lookalike at the 1999 WTO convention walking around with a sign that said "Gabba, gabba hey."
