          Too obvious! Nobody is going to believe anything THAT extreme and all of us would know about it long before reading this post by the loud shrieking and wailing of all scadians all over the world.

          Now if you really wanted to scare the crap out of people you could have reported:

          Notification from the SCA Board of Directors and Coopers Lake Campground:
          The BOD and Coopers Lake are expecting to have a larger population at Pennsic this year due to the time change and fair weather so they have decided to put more extreme limits on campers area allotments. Each camper will now be restricted to an area of not more than 80 square feet. There will be a prohibition on making or building any fires in camp due to the overcrowding issues and local fire laws. We trust that all attendees will abide by these new rules and join us for a happy and safe Pennsic.

          Now that would cause a furor. But canceling Pennsic? That would never happen. There would be a firestorm and hundreds of overweight bearded scadian men named "Ragnar something or other" would be storming the offices in Milpitas in full norse armor carrying axes, polearms and swords as the women helped load the siege weapons and the bards would be crying and singing sad ballads. It wouldn't be pretty. lol

            Crap, next thing you know the will require a bar license for camps that throw parties. Or make Coopers Lake/Pennsic a dry site.

                I'm not going to Pennsic this year. Instead, I am going camping with a whole bunch of friends in Pennsylvania. We're going to do something a little crazy and wear funny clothes the whole time.

                      The wells went dry at Pennsic? That could be bad for all those camps with showers.

                                I finally got the full story from a VERY reliable source. Aparently at last war, an unattractive lass with the unlikely name of "Timmy" was drinking rum and decided that she was not well, because she felt like hell. She decided that she needed to get dry (how she got wet is still open for speculation), so she went back to her camp. Unfortunately she missed the gate, but luckily one of her lisping campmates called out "Lathy!" and she was saved from wandering naked in the bog, which no one would have noticed anyway. How she got naked is still a mystery, but if she was drinking rum in the bog, totally expected.

                                That's the real story. It's amazing how stories can get all twisted and confused.

                                Anyway, I'll see you all at Pennsic.

                                          No, just upset fools complaining that they didn't need to place any restrictions on campfires. Or how if they terraced the land they could fit more. One person was upset because it would cause more of a strain on the showers.

                                            No campfires will be needed because it will be plenty hot enough since Timmy found that gate to hell.

                                              Wait, Pennsic has a Hellmouth now? Can we feed it people who Don't Get It but show up anyway?

                                                No no, there will no longer be "people who don't get it" because, in order to draw a more diverse crowd, this Pennsic will be more mundane-friendly: No restrictive parking rules, no push for period garb, etc. Also, in order to bring in more money, the fighters normal colors will be replaced with corporate sponsorship.

                                                  I heard Medieval Times was sponsoring Pennsic now Lowering cost of entrance. They will take up a good portion of the field by the road to serve the customers. And the handicapped parking is now customer parking. They might enforce a dress code while you are at the field or at the market place.

                                                        Uwe Boll is a horrible director, BUT.........I watched a movie where he challenged some of his critics to a boxing match and then kicked the living crap out of them. So he's got that going for him. Which is nice.

                                                          well that was partially because the critics thought it was a fun publicity stunt where they'd just get to goof around in a boxing ring, while Uwe actually trained ahead of time to kick their asses. To me, that's just proof that Uwe Boll is such a bad director that he can't even direct threats without their meaning getting garbled.
