i love it. this is funny and it seems everyone got the joke and nobody started crying with their SJW bull#.



www.huffingtonpost.com...


When a group of black cosplayers decided to pose for a group photo at DragonCon in Atlanta over Labor Day weekend, some of them didn’t expect an interloper to join them. Members of the Black Geeks of DragonCon Facebook group showed up at the convention dressed as heroes Green Lantern, Black Panther and Captain America, among others. But one woman slipped into the photo dressed up as, well, if not a villain, then at least an unsympathetic character: “BBQ Becky.”



She was concerned that dressing as “BBQ Becky” might come across as glorifying the woman, but she was invited to the shoot by a friend who is a member of Black Geeks of DragonCon.
“For the photo shoot, I was adamant that the organizers give permission for ... me to be there as BBQ Becky because I didn’t want to actually crash the event,” she said. “Even with permission, I was nervous going out to the photo shoot. I didn’t know how it would be received at DragonCon in general and specifically at that event.”
Rose waited until the shoot was underway before she stepped into a shot with her phone already to her ear.


i think that is hilarious. all in good fun. just a joke. no need for people to lose their #.

i say good on everyone there


“Once people noticed I was there, people were laughing and cheering and clapping. Everyone seemed to immediately get the joke,” she said.


check out Killmonger behind her

hahahahahahah

Ok. I'm the idiot in the room. Can you tell me who BBQ Becky is, or do I have to google it?

OK, Googled it.

OMG That is funny! How great that they all had a sense of humor about it!
But what do you want to bet, someone who wasn't there, is going to raise hell about it?

Corporate brand names are not verbs. Just like a piece of tissue paper is not called Kleenex.
Defeat the brainwashing. It is called doing a web search, not googling it.

But yea, I guess this was funny.

pretty common to say you are going to google something these days.

its 2018.

a piece of tissue is not a kleenex but a lot of people refer to it as that.

just like a bandage is not a band aid but damn near everyone calls it a band aid

unreal

right. And the irony is not lost on me that on a discussion board that laments the power of brainwashing and propaganda, that the general population, and the members who even lament the same concepts unwittingly make those brands more powerful by speaking and writing in such a manner.

Whatever though, I am just a crazy ape ranting on the level of a grammar nazi. What do I know?

And I will bet you more often than not, it is Band-Aid bandages in peoples homes. But you know, its not the power of brand marketing or anything...

and since this is apparently the topic now if that person above used google for their web search then they did google it didnt they?

You know whats funny - if she wanted to be there she should have put on some sort of black face paint - for the sake of consistency.

A black Geek dressed as Captain America is going too far

definitely would have been some crying there.

anytime any white person dons the black face it is a big time racist no no no

only white face is acceptable

we all know this

i like her joke just how it was though.

What is really funny, is that I called it by it's corporate name, but it isn't the search engine I actually have on my computer.


And since you went there with me. Tissue paper is not a tissue. It is the paper you most commonly use in gift bags. Not the thing you wipe your nose with, AKA a tissue.

You sure are triggered pretty hard about a few words. And derailed the thread for almost a page.

Talk about brain washing.

SO I did not actually eat Taco Bell today, I was actually Taco Belling??

It does not matter if he used Google search. He did not google anything. He did a web search on Google's search engine. There was no act of committing a google, because that is not something real. It is a knee jerk brand loyalty statement drilled into the psyche by the power of marketing.

When is the last time someone said "bing it! yahoo it! duckduckgo it! altavista it!" ????

I got gas at Wawa, but I did not go Wawaing nor did I Wawa my car.

the joke is still hilarious. im just being an ass.
