SUMMARY:
It was the most disastrous convention that everyone saw coming, but no one knew just how right they were. Tumblr’s own convention DashCon came and went, producing a barrel of memes based around the ineptitude and sheer, utter failure of its staff and participants. It was a failure so spectacular that the Other Side, who have already taken tumblr to task in the past, had to revisit their old friend to laugh at its pain. And this time they brought “tumblr expert” LeighAnn Williams along to help explain all the dumb shit they don’t know about.

    Yep, this pretty much sums it up:

    • Max-Vader

      I really like this one.

      • Wakashi

        His expression is the defining look of any rational person that stays on tumblr more than 10 seconds, lol.

  • yes

  • Cecilthedarknight_28

    I don’t know if I should laugh or cry at these people.

  • James Tuddrussell

    Hair that is short, stringy and weird, or a blob of hair… My god, they are video game characters!

  • Jahmere Durham

    This is fucking sad…. This was a con. Holy crap.

  • Andrew Erickson

    I’m Not the Breakman Panel
    (with apologies to The Megas)

    Sometimes I can’t see the cis through the het
    Hard to get more time in the con ballpit
    You say I’ve already stayed too long
    Charging extra won’t help save dashcon

    I had an orgy with some members
    Crotches afire as I remember
    Again I hear a promise spoken
    Night Vale’s panel will be awesome

    Applaud me, reblog me
    All you validate me
    If you’re not wrong, not total scum
    Then what am I supposed to be
    What am I supposed to be

    You say these things you say are just for laughs
    Why don’t you guys go find some Jews to gas
    We stand for the weak, like my twelve headmates
    I will cut you if you call them fakes

    My pronouns are xe and xir and xime
    Not using them is a tumblr hate crime
    Stop mocking others you need to quit
    I’ve heard your podcasts and they’re full of shit

    Applaud me, reblog me
    All you validate me
    If you’re not wrong, not total scum
    Then what am I supposed to be
    What am I supposed to be

    I am a fan of Super Sherlock Who
    He fights demon Englishmen for me and you
    I’m not like you, I’m not the cishet
    I am unique, I am a tumblrette

    Applaud me, reblog me
    All you validate me
    If you’re not wrong, not total scum
    Then what am I supposed to be
    What am I supposed to be
    Why am I supposed to seethe
