I like guys who really play the absurd and goofy hat card bcz they frequently contrast it by wearing the world's blandest of casual wear.

fedora guy is so wrong, in so many countless ways ...

how many of the guys pictured in this thread qualify as "grown men" tbh?

the amazing thing about fedora dude is that he manages to pull focus from the dude in the center wearing a Nightmare Before Christmas raver hat

I mean, just ponder that

after the whole d3@thdr0ne revelation I wouldn't count all of these guys as sexless

What was the "revelation"?

I haven't watched any of these, but Powerpuff Girls definitely had crossover appeal and in-jokes for adult audiences. There are also dudes who are really into animation stuff regardless so... this doesn't seem that odd considering the writer and context.

There has to be some sort of version of Rule 34 that also states that if there's an entertainment media, there is a group of men into it somewhere.

that he existed and occasionally had sex. sometimes even consensual.

thank (or blame) cankles for the bronies convention pic (he posted it on the OG my little ponies thread this summer).

dan OTM about fedora dude.

For all of your gift giving needs: http://bronymerch.tumblr.com/

I am seriously considering sewing plush my little ponies because the bronies are willing to fork over mad cash for them.

raver hat guy seems to be a bit of a media whore

Darin, Tuesday, 28 February 2012 20:50 (2 years ago) Permalink

Just imagine how disgusting the inside of that hat must be after wearing it around all day at these awesome brony events.

he's just happy that he's not being upstaged by Fedora Dude. Fedora Dude just abides, man.

"yeah yeah, you have a wacky hat with ponies glued to it; could you tell us more about the dude with the tie and fedora?"

"Chewing on a pen" is my favorite brony in that picture.

I like so not gonna happen guy at the left end, in the green shirt.

is that j0rdan s. next to the pen-chewer?

mookieproof, Tuesday, 28 February 2012 21:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

Me too! There ought to be a poll. xp

"chewing on a pen" is the only one i'd guess has ever had some stank on his hang-low.

der Truthahn des Giftes (Eisbaer), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 21:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

Some serious underestimating at what goes on at these kind of conferences. I guarantee a scary amount of those guys have gotten some play with their fellow enthusiasts.

"chewing on a pen" is the only one i'd guess has ever had some stank on his hang-low.

I think you mean "sex-related stank on his hang-low" because I may be prejudging but, based on this picture, I am pretty sure a good number of the people in that picture are familiar with stank all kinds of places on their bodies

uh you guys are mocking a bunch of high school students

"I get older, they stay the same age."

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 28 February 2012 21:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

yup, sex-stank on the genitalia.

and they're kind of asking for the mockery, you know ... not that i was much better when i was in high school, mind.

I don't know what rad shit y'all were doing age 14-17
But I wasn't doing anything more honourable than this

mac and me (Ówen P.), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 21:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

IIRC pictures of what I was doing have been posted to ILE, which mostly involved stalking the halls dressed as an extra from Degrassi High and doing the cabbage patch in my friends' kitchens

Vaseline MEN AMAZING JOURNEY (DJP), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 21:42 (2 years ago) Permalink

(should note said cabbage patch was usually to "The Days of Swine and Roses" by TKK)

Vaseline MEN AMAZING JOURNEY (DJP), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 21:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

Most of those people look pretty normal to me, aside from wacky-hat guy. The only cue I could really take to suggest that they're all the risible nerdy virgins you think they are is the fact that they're at a brony meet-up.

emil.y, Tuesday, 28 February 2012 21:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

fedora looks like he wandered into the wrong room and was too polite to leave before they took the picture; I imagine 30 seconds afterward he was all "so just to clarify, the Mad Men meetup is on the right"

Vaseline MEN AMAZING JOURNEY (DJP), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 21:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

I hope Degrassi does a brony ep

mac and me (Ówen P.), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 21:45 (2 years ago) Permalink

i was a risible nerdy virgin through the vast majority of time i was in high school ... game recognize game, yo.

fedora looks like he stepped offa a 1979 Specials EP cover.

is this just what furries do now? do furries still exist? is there some venn diagram overlap here? I still don't 'get' this.

iatee, Tuesday, 28 February 2012 21:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, they all seem like they'll be ok in the long run. Fedora will grow out of his suit, even. Not sure why their sex lives have anything to do with it.

RIP Wheels ;_;

furries are eternal, man ... or at least since "the shining"

I think these are just nerdy fanboys who like a cartoon. xp

carl agatha, Tuesday, 28 February 2012 21:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

I owned a fedora as a teenager. yikes! never got the courage to wear it out though

flagp∞st (dayo), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 21:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

I don't see a whole lot of difference between nerdy fanboys who like this cartoon and nerdy fanppl who like all manner of things and attend conventions about them. Right down to their penchant for silly hats.

xp I totally have a fedora pic of me from jr high.

carl agatha, Tuesday, 28 February 2012 21:50 (2 years ago) Permalink

I desperately wanted a porkpie hat in the days of third-wave ska. Thankfully e-commerce was a little less developed and I sure as fuck wasn't going to find one locally.

Kiarostami bag (milo z), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 21:51 (2 years ago) Permalink

guys, I owned a fedora, a bicycle cap with the name of my German camp on it, a Dr Seuss raver hat and a green baseball cap with a cartoon mascot from a Japanese baseball team on it by the time I was TWENTY; I think I have put in my time in the bad hat trenches and am allowed to chuckle at those that came after me

Vaseline MEN AMAZING JOURNEY (DJP), Tuesday, 28 February 2012 21:57 (2 years ago) Permalink

oh, also a reversible skull cap

there are a lot of bronies who are not into like furry shit, but there are definitely furry bronies

I came pretty close to ordering a t-shirt with the japanese baseball player on it that the dude wore in the big lebowski

idg reversible skull cap - does it reverse into a normal looking baseball cap or something

It has a LOT more cum than you might think.

I really hate the spelling "cum" i know that's how it's spelled etc. but it just bugs me and looks so juvenile but I guess when we're talking about a guy with a cum jar and a sexual predilection for animated ponies that should be the last thing that bothers me.

I have to wonder what stoked these fellows' libidos prior to the resurrection of My Little Pony. What did they put in the jar before MLP came into their lives?

Pretty sure Crowley would retroactively amend his statement about what thou wilt in light of this incident.

Maybe I'm just a bad person, but I didn't really see anything there I didn't expect to and didn't see anything that repulsive looking.

The concept itself is batshit fucking crazy though.

you know, i'm glad this happened. i'm not sure why yet, but i feel like it's a good thing for the human race and our future. maybe it reveals some truth that needed to be proved? or something? maybe it'll teach us something about human nature? maybe it'll begin a healing process that ends up expanding beyond the my little pony cum jar? maybe the vox.com article will be really funny?

Yeah, I think once someone has reached the nadir of acts that can be committed in solitude, we as a species really have nowhere to go but up.
