I really hope posting this is okay. If not, sorry Moe.
It has been brought to my attention repeatedly that I am a bad geek because I do not like PIXAR. One of the listeners of my Geeky Pleasures show on Party 934 suggested that I lend my ass to spankings at PAX for some sort of fundraiser in lieu of the above. Since this idea has been put out there, I have been getting a lot of “Yes DO IT!”
There are a few different fundraisers being done during the PAX festivities for the wonderful charity Child’s Play. I am already participating in one and that is the TriWizard Drinking Tournament
where the soon to be infamous dance off will occur. Another fundraiser worth mentioning is the Cookie Brigade
, so keep your eyes open for the cookie people.
This is how I have decided to help. If you find me at PAX (I will be posting my finalizedish schedule on my website
Monday to make this easier), walk up to me and say something along the lines of “Hey I hear you hate PIXAR. Time for me to tap dat ass” at which point (after you have given me a donation to Child’s Play and don’t be cheap, I was thinking the 2-5 dollar range) I will turn around and you can give me a spanking. Do not abuse the privilege of tapping my ass. Please be gentle.
If you do not know what I look like, to make myself easier to locate, I will have a few of these pinned to my person.
EDIT: I thought the fact my picture is my avatar and there is a picture in me in post a picture of yourself thread, that would be enough. But I guess not. So here are a couple pictures of myself. May still be hard to recognize me hence the other way to identify me.
Sounds like a win/win situation for everyone
I would recommend not going through with this, as something is bound to go wrong.
I seriously hope you reconsider doing this.
How about you just realize that Pixar hasn't made anything less than an amazing movie, ever, and call it quits?

I find it rather amusing that people find it okay to get drunk for the children but this is bad. There is the same amount of potential for things to go wrong with each, especially when you have over 200 people getting drunk together.
I have faith that people will be very smart about this and realize it is all in fun and for charity and thus use the utmost discretion.

oh lighten up
A week from now Tube is going to be in prison for cutting a girl clean in half with a single backhand to the backside.
I can't tell if this is a joke.
It's a joke, right?
Do it. Make some money for the fundraiser.
(My username has NOTHING to do with this post... I realize the obviousness of the situation )
Also, yeah, shouldn't take place IN the actual con.
As a mother, I completely agree. That is why I am not going to announce a time or place or make people line up or any such thing.
People can choose to find me or not. I won't be carrying any big signs advertising it or making any type of scene if it does happen. So if people take the time out to find me in between interviews cool. If not, that is cool as well. There is so much to do at PAX, schedules are sure to conflict. Donate to Child's Play.
Like I said, those participating are all adults and as such I trust common sense will be used.
Might I suggest aquiring a stuffed donkey for the event? Yes that's horribly corny and lame, but it might work out as a better fundraising/publicity/revenge tool.
(1) You can offer to let people can spank your ass (by which I mean the stuffed animal) without risk to yourself
(2) More people would be willing to participate, which means more funds raised
(3) You can raise publicity and funds with something a little more tastefull and humourous
(4) Most importantly, you can do all of the above and get one up on the listener who suggested this endeavor. You'll do what he said, without doing what he meant. That's always fun.
Personally I wouldn't partake in current contest, but smacking a stuffed animal for charity might be fun.
I have thought of that as well.
And the suggestion for this fundraiser (a little FYI) was made by PAX attendees who listen to my show
I'm not even a mom... yet, but it was just something that came to my mind. It seems like you are trying to be responsible about this and hopefully others who choose to participate will also. AbsintheMinded's idea is also very cute ^_^
She has to cross the border...
That could be a very awkward conversation.
I'd like to take this time to point out that some of us with children really wish people would stop it already with the 'what about the children' bullshit. It's the responsibility of the parent to decide what is or is not appropriate for their kids.
That said, if I were going to PAX I would definitely tap dat ass. And if I were to take my children, I would pay for them to tap dat ass.
You're assuming that parents who are okay with their child attending PAX are also okay with their child being exposed to public spanking. Whether they partake it in themselves is not the issue.
Also, we're talking about nerds here. Most of them will be too nervous to give anything but the briefest of polite taps. Then they will never wash their hand again.
1. The bar crawl is an adults only event that's held completely away from the convention itself.
2. I spoke with Khoo ahead of time and made sure there would be no conflicts between the nature of the event and the image of Child's Play.

And it's fine that you don't care, but with 65k people it's hard to anticipate everyone's reactions. I just don't think that a majority of people will be expecting to see somebody getting spanked (for charity or otherwise) at a convention that they thought was about gaming. I can see a lot of people getting the wrong idea from it is all. There's only a small percentage of attendees that are on the forums and would know what was going on when they saw it happening.
Children generally fit into one of two categories as they grow up:
(A) Still too young to be offended because they don't understand why it would be offensive or
(B) Smarter than people give them credit for.
If we beleive children can play Halo without thinking that picking up a gun and killing people is okay, then we should also believe they could see this happen without becoming a sexual devaint.
That being said I wholeheartedly agree that certain parents need to be protected from seeing this happening in their children's presence to prevent them from going all "Jack Thompson" in the middle of PAX.... hence my earlier suggestion. :winky:
Also, stuffed donkey or the real thing, if ass spanking is to be associated in any way with Child's Play (ie the charity's name mentioned in conjunction with it) that's proabably an important step.
I ageed, I saw most of that stuff at lasts years P.A.X so whats the fuss!? BTW Good luck Jules I support you.

I guess that was more my point, you have people coming with their teens who aren't gamers and won't get it. Then the poor kids won't be allowed to attend PAX again until they're able to on their own and their parents might start getting all crazy as well. To speak in more general terms, just be mindful of your surroundings. Sometimes we take it for granted that we know the type of people who are at a con with us, but when there are so many people you really can't know what's going on in everyone's head. Some people are not going to be ok with it for various reasons, but one reason that I could foresee becoming a bigger issue is that there are children around. I'd hate for Jerry, Mike, or Robert to have to deal with e-mails or anything from angry parents or groups when it could have been prevented. There are always Jack Thompson's out there who will jump at any chance to say how gaming is bad for kids. It sucks, but it's true. And that's as far as I'm going with this, I don't want it to blow up anymore.
good job everyone
