Awesome Con DC 2016 Aftermath!

Awesome Con DC was two weeks ago! I’m a little late on this one, but cut me some slack. I had a lot to recover from, including this awesome fan art (which put me in the same company as Tom King, Franco, and Sam Ellis!). I also got to do two T-shirt sketches (those are drawings on T-shirts, not of T-shirts), which is a first.

What wasn’t a first was hearing lots of interesting stuff at the table! So without further ado, here’s the greatest hits. There are a lot, but that’s just because people are very talkative in Washington, DC.

  • Oh, it’s actually a comic.
  • Somebody needed to do this.
  • I am not embarrassed to say that I want to buy these.
  • Kid: Can I get one of these? Mom: Seriously?
  • It is poop. And it’s beautiful.
  • (Explaining why the plush dolls shouldn’t have happy expressions) Could you imagine a smiling poop? Look in the toilet and it’s smiling back at you? That’s like something out of Stephen King.
  • Poop! (Caresses the catnip toys) Precious poop!
  • ¡Mierda!
  • (To his friend) This is where I got the poop plushie you see me cuddling with all the time.
  • This is wrong. This is just wrong! Ugh, I just…
  • Me: You can look through the comics if you like. Kid: Eh.
  • (Mother talking to her child) It’s poop acting like people. That’s called “personification.”
  • This actually makes me want to go to the bathroom.
  • Husband: It’s poop. Wife (deadpan): Yeah, I know.
  • My brother texted me and said, “Get me a poop action figure.” What is that?
  • I have great respect for you people.
  • (Regarding the poop action figures) Eww, they’ve been up somebody’s butt! (Not actually true)
  • You guys have poop action figures? Oh my gawd!
  • If I got one of these [plush dolls] for Christmas I could sleep better at night!
  • (Picks up a poop action figure with a blank expression drawn on it) This one, it captures my soul.
  • (Little kid) Why are you doing a comic about poop?!
  • Babe, I want a turd!
  • It’s a potato!
  • Fecal matter is everywhere.
  • Poop Office! Yay! (Begins clapping their hands)
  • (Looking at the “#2 Boss” mug) Hashtag two boss.
  • (Looks at cover of issue #4) Mom: Eww, the water’s yellow. Kid: Yeah, because it’s pee.
  • I’m pretty sure if I got something like this for my husband he would get in trouble at work.
  • This is the poop center.
  • Your booth made me laugh in the best way possible.

And now for the specialty categories!

Signs that Poop Office is famous:
  • This is funny from last year.
  • Here’s the poop table!
  • I’m so excited the poop people are here!
  • This is the poop man.
  • Poop Office is famous. Everyone is talking about it.
Most Creative Award (using Poop Office products to insult each other):
  • Person #1: (Points to one of the poop button and says to friend) This is you! Person #2: (Points to issue #2) This is your mom! (Person #1 points to plush) This is your brother!
Most Self-Aware Award:
  • Guy: I appreciate this. Me: I appreciate you appreciating this. Guy again: You’d probably appreciate me more if I bought something. (He didn’t buy anything)
Most Educational Award (for teaching me that calling someone an egg is a thing):
  • We need to throw this at [our friend] when he’s being an egg.
All Around Winner Award:
  • (Regarding the action figures marked as free) Does this pay any dollars?

In case you’re wondering, no the free poop action figures you can pick up at our convention appearances do not pay any dollars. But they are free.

We had a fantastic time at Awesome Con DC this past weekend! It was great meeting everyone and spreading our poop around such a beautiful city.

Following my regular post-convention tradition, here are some funny things that were said at the Poop Office table:

  • What the fuck?! Really?! Oh, you guys again! Shit, shit, shit, shit, shit!
  • (Looking at a poop plush) Child: Why is he sad? Mom: Because he doesn’t like his job.
  • You are the best trollers since trolling began.
  • I’ve never said “aww” about poop before.
  • (Touches poop plush) That’s the softest poop I’ve ever felt.
  • (Points at two poop plushes placed behind a smaller catnip toy) It’s a poop family!
  • We poop all day and we party all night!
  • I don’t get the poop thing. (The premise is explained to them) Okay, that makes sense.
  • Mom (reading the slogan on our T-shirt): “Do you think your job stinks?” Child: No, I think your job stinks!
  • (Referring to our poop action figures, which look like but are not candy) I was gonna eat poop.
  • Why?
  • You must work for the government.
  • I wanna drop a turd in my boss’s office.
  • That’s gross. It’s beautiful, though.
  • Wait, that’s a toilet?
  • I’m not paying for poop.
  • (Looks at the table for a while) Eh! (Leaves quickly)
  • *I don’t have the exact quote, but someone explained to me why anal sex is gross (answer: the poop)*
And the winner for best line from Awesome Con goes to…
  • (Gestures to a Poop Office comic book) They’re made of molecules. Everything is made of molecules. Even paper, trees, if you look really close, it’s made of molecules.
 Later this month we’re going to be appearing in Artist Alley at HeroesCon in Charlotte, North Carolina (June 19-21), so if you’re in the area, stop by and see us! Just look for the giant Poop Office signs.

This past weekend’s Awesome Con in Washington DC was a fantastic show! It was great to meet people in the nation’s capital and introduce them to the wonders of Poop Office. Also, I got to see Cary Elwes behind a curtain from far away! I didn’t have to wait in line or nothing!

Here are some fun quotes overheard at my table this year:

  • [Speaking to her child] Let’s go.
  • As soon as I heard the word “poop” it changed my life.
  • Do they poop humans? Because I just learned where babies come from and I don’t like it!
  • I can’t decide if this is brilliant or horrible.
  • The disgustingness drew me in.
  • [To child] Read this comic. This is what office life is like. That really happens!
  • [Looking at cover to issue #4] Hopefully that’s lemonade.
  • I want a poop plushie, but my parents won’t let me! [Later came back and got one]
  • What’s “2 Girls 1 Mug”? I don’t get it.
  • Do you ever regret making your comic about poop?
  • Oh look, there’s urine in that water cooler.
  • [Speaking on a cell phone] Yeah, I’m over here at the poop table.
  • Can you make [a comic] about Congress?
