***END ANNOYING THING***
Look, a furry event that somehow manages to avoid using the word "furry" even once! Let's just erase that embarassing name, "Furry Spring Break," and put another thing in the same time and place.
Neither Vanity Fair nor MTV managed to make me feel bad about anything in the furry community -- but this does. As much as I like the pawpet show and the people behind it, this just plain pisses me off.
This is almost as stupid as "We're not 'trekkies,' we're 'trekKERS,'" but is a lot more irritating.
