WARNING: This Night + Day article will self-destruct upon completion. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to accrue autographs and uncomfortable photographs from the most random hodgepodge of C-list celebrities ever to share the same South Florida oxygen. Your targets are: Richard Roundtree (Shaft), the Soup Nazi (Seinfeld), Leslie Nielsen (Naked Gun), Mike Teevee (yes, Mike Teevee from Willy Wonka), and Less Than Jake (ska band). You will need lots of Mountain Dew Game Fuel. You will not need to shower. Your mission will be executed from 2 p.m. Friday to 6 p.m. Sunday at the Florida Supercon at the Doubletree Miami Convention Center (711 NW 72nd Ave., Miami).
Your identity, which must remain confidential, can be maintained through cosplay. Entering a contest or partaking in a costume workshop is encouraged, and Intel suggests the best course of action would be wearing a Jigglypuff costume. Anime panels are available for assimilation, but beware of foam swords hiding actual swords. Also, comic creators Ariel Olivetti (Cable), Bill Sienkiewicz (Sandman: Endless Nights), Fred van Lente (Amazing Spider-Man), and Khoi Pham (Mighty Avengers) will be available to sketch half-naked women for you to pump yourself up. Admission is $20 for one day and $40 for a weekend pass you will obtain these funds through your new undercover job as a Mario the Baker delivery driver. Good luck; may the force, Green Lanterns light, and the Power-Cosmic be with you. This message will self-destruct in 5, 4, 3
so call 954-263-0654, or visit supercon.tv fast.
