Default Fun with other cultures...

So... our family has made a small/new tradition with our kids - first day that school is out, we head to sanduskey for a day or two in the waterpark(s) and then a day at Cedar Point.

Northern Ohio, being a part of the midwest is always interesting seeing 350lb ladies covered in tattoo's losing part of a 2 piece "swimsuit" on the Flowrider, or at the bottom of the Swirleepool.

This year, we got lucky with our timing - Colossalcon anime convention AND a biker show was in town...

I didn't know that there were levels of snobbery with anime, until this morning and seeing "Trollface" walking towards us, and overhearing from behinds us as some young tart dressed as a kitten mutter: "Trollface?! ugh, that's not even anime, that's internet crap... ugh..."
