The Travels of Cardboard Jim Traber: SoonerCon 20

5:00 AM EDT on June 6, 2011

As Marisa mentioned on Friday, SoonerCon had their annual nerd convention this past weekend.  I call it a nerd convention out of respect, because in all honesty, I can't think of a better way to describe a convention that's catered to fans of comic books, science fiction, monsters, Dungeons and Dragons, Lord of the Rings and all those other fun topics that interfere with more desirable things like sex.

I also call it a nerd convention because I'm a professional blogger, and there really aren't too many conventions I'm allowed to make fun without looking like a hypocrite.  Hell, even making fun of this one is pushing it.  I've seen pictures of blogging conferences and they make the crowd at SoonerCon look like the attendees on some Jagermeister MTV Bud Light Party Cruise or something.

But...I haven't been to a blogging convention yet, so yeah, we decided to wake up Cardboard Jim and take him to Sooner Con.  Just like Regular Jim Traber, Cardboard Jim really enjoys comic books.  Unlike Regular Jim Traber, Cardboard Jim didn't masturbate to the sex scenes in the Watchmen comic book.

Anyway, check out some travels of Cardboard Jim after the jump.

Cardboard Jim made an impressive appearance at SoonerCon in a cardboard TARDIS.
