Overheard at The World Science Fiction Convention

This is a feature that appears periodically, as we attend conventions and overhear things. The tradition of keeping track of anonymous overheard bits and bobs started for us at the 2002 ConJose in San Jose, where trying (or trying not to) fill in the blanks on overheard conversations made us laugh so much that we made it a tradition. In this issue we share the newest "overheards" from the World Science Fiction Convention in Denver. Thanks to Rina Weisman for her help in collecting quotes.

"Don't you even put that ass out; don't you even offer it to me!"

"Now when I smell hot dogs I think. . . . feminists."

"Wow, that's a BIG Jawa."

"I'm going to fire you if you ever say 'gerbil nookie' again."

"Connie Willis signed your banana?!"

"Tornadoes? In Denver?"

"It's kind of heavy on the donkey and light on the Pez."

"[Name omitted], what nice tentacles you have!"

"The last time I fit into those jeans was when I had the tapeworm."

Con attendee, as the lights in the bar come on for last call: "Is it morning?"
