A thought - Eric's House Of Ego
I'm kinda shocked that (as far as I can tell) there has never been a convention called InCONtinence
That's the one we're going to start when we get too old to enjoy those crazy kids at the cons anymore.
that was so funny I almost.....wait LOL
I still think that Worldcon should be called "CONtinental Drift".
I buy them because my mother needs them. It's worse than a guy having to buy Kotex for his girlfriend/wife/mother etc.- everyone KNOWS he's not going to be using what he's buying- except maybe to soak up spills on the floor or something.
New hobby! Designing programming tracks for non-existent cons!
I think I attended ConCussion one year... at least, that's how I felt on Sunday morning...
I have a vague impression that inconsequential has actually been used.

Hsven't seen one called Constipation either. Maybe it could be held in Flushing?

That was one of the nicknames for the '83 Worldcon in Baltimore.
That's because we're already attending it on a regular basis in our own bathrooms....maybe we'll hold it at *your* house someday... :-)
I think the idea just never held water in the past...
It might be hard to find a weekend for it. I'd bet most of them are too inCONvenient.
How about a filk con, DisConcerting, for filkers who don't like to sit in one place too long.
Personally, I'd like to see a con for fans of science fiction palindromes, Noccon. The GoHHoG would be the author of Rats Live on No Evil Star.
Sit on a potato pan, Otis.
Looks like WhatIfCon has not been taken yet either.
I Think I Con - for railroading fans
Congested - a con for people with sinus conditions, or bad traffic?
Contusion - a con where fans bump into one another at high speed
Connie Francis - a con for fans of Francis Bacon, or just bacon.
Lastly, for writers who need a place to get ideas:
Oh, and an afterthought . . . a con to teach fans to be more polite, in a certain East Coast state that starts with Con - Con Etiquette.
