Review of Cardboard*Con 1: It’s Just Crazy Enough to Work (2010)

Cardboard*Con was accidentally founded by Captain Drew of the Cardboard Troopers (a ragtag group of untalented costumers). The official mission of Cardboard*Con is to promote the art of cardboard costuming (which the Captain called “Boxplay”), but the truth is that it was created to meet chicks who are willing to wear garbage.

The very first Cardboard*Con in history was held on Saturday, March 6, 2010 in Atlanta, Georgia and was widely regarded to be an internet scam, due in large part to the low quality of the first website which only featured an enormous image of the first Cardboard*Con Badj and the following announcement:

MIT Nerds Race Cardboats

Today a bunch of geeks up in Massachusetts launched their first-ever cardboard boat race!! These nerds have their own cute little newsletter and have written a long, long, long story about their cardboard regatta that may eat into your rum-drinking time. We advise that you just read our article, which steals the best part of their article and adds some gravitas to it, due to our powerful voice in the cardboard community.
