  • Inspiration: A poem by Dale Arnold
    Running Balticon is like:
    Using wet noodles to herd cats through the legs of Buffalo
    who are stampeding through a minefield full of catnip,
    after the buffalo have been set on fire at night by a UFO,
    as you keep your eyes closed because those are the rules,
    and you are being graded on style without a curve.
