I hadn't even thought of this, but thank goodness. I can just imagine it now, and I don't want to think about it really happening.

[edit]
What happened to the Gurren Lagann pic? It was totally awesome.

THANK GOD. Vulvas or whatever the hell they're called make the most annoying sound ever. And having to endure it for hours and hours is just ear-splitting.

Yaoi paddles are also just blah. You wouldn't believe how many times I've been hit by random fangirls (and an old man once Mad ).

Ah Yaoi paddle. Be happy they were banned for life lessons of "things you can't do in real life" can be lessons hard learned. 2 have ended up with broken paddles and 1 other with a foot to the paddler's gut. Then and there I decided to adopt those 3 stangers method of the anti-yaoi paddle. I always wondered if they even got in trouble for that.

This article is incorrect. HenDaNe did not sell vuvuzelas at Anime Expo. The yaoi division acquired theirs from another booth at AX.

Thank god! Thank god those annoying noises won't be at Otakon, I bet everyone will forget about them until the next world cup anyway. I first heard them on a radio commercial and went "....is something wrong with my car?"

Yes to the ban of the paddles ( Never been hit but I've seem them. Those are not paddles, those are ****ing oars.) and Vuvuzelas are just a fad ( a noisy and headache inducing one.), Let hope every con just does this.

GOOD, I'm glad Otakon banned them. Hopefully they'll be banned at AX next year too. I was at Anime Expo this year and I can't tell you how many times people were blowing them while standing next to me. Mad
