We Hung Out with Disappointed Nerds Outside of FanExpo in Toronto

FanExpo is Canada's largest convention for nerds who love video games, aliens, comic books, science fiction, anime, and horror. It's also a gigantic clusterfuck.

FanExpo is Canada's largest convention for nerds who love video games, aliens, comic books, science fiction, anime, and horror. But because of the covention's broad coverage of everything geeky, the whole thing is also a gigantic clusterfuck. We went to check out the hordes of costumed fanatics, but when we arrived on Saturday, we were told by a FanExpo volunteer the building was at capacity, and ended up stuck outside in line with the rest of them. We're not sure where else FanExpo could host its nerd mania event next year to make it more inclusive for the thousands of disguised dynamos looking to buy action figures, but hopefully they sort their shit out soon.
