A thought
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.

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.

I have a vague impression that inconsequential has actually been used.

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... :-)

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.

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:

S-con-ectady.

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.
