|Pick Two! Or, The Nomination Statement

The Crew of The Snow Queen
Just for reference (and in case anyone hasn't seen it), this is what I sent in when Tammy asked for a campaign statement when we were nominated. I had a fever at the time.|
Arrr, me hearties!
The Roving Pirate Party is a scurvy crew of long-time area fans who sail the
seas of ConFusion (and Penguicon) dispensing RUM, SODOMY, and THE LASH --
err, I mean RUM, SNACKS, and ARABIC RAP MUSIC (What? We're BARBARY
Pirates...) And THE LASH. And, er, RUM. And -- oh, BUGGER. Where was I?
In any event, if you select us as Fan Guests of Honor, we pledge to be as
disruptive (we've emptied dances at three cons now) and entertaining (see
above) as possible. We've already got some great panel ideas planned --
"How to Throw a Roving Party (While Staying Out Of Bankruptcy Court, Jail,
and the Royal Navy)", "Rum Tastings" (ever had Stroh 80? evidence suggests
we have but none of us can remember anything about Conclave), and other
pirate topics such as "Piracy in SF", "Downloading Hard-to-Find TV Shows",
and "Cutlass Selection" (the swords or the cars, your call).
Look at it this way -- since we have our own transportation (Ahoy!), you get
a bunch of Fan GOHs for less than the price of flying one in with their
guest. Which means you could have one of us on EVERY PANEL. (We can also be
bribed NOT to do that, by the way.)
Or look at it this way -- if you don't select us, you'll still get RUM,
SODOMY, and THE LASH. But if you do select us, WE'LL LET YOU PICK TWO.
How's that for a deal?
