Brilliant stuff.

Nerd sense of humor FTW. And let's be honest, it rarely wins.

Deofuta:
Saw this earlier at another website, loved it. Especially the spy, who was also making rounds at a furry convention.

Gotta love that Gentleman.

Sir I present you with an award for the greatest avatar ever.

Woot! *Places it up with the others*

Nothing like a Pyramid Head dancing like a maniac to make my day :)

One of them should of held up a sign saying, "Yeah, Well my God has a hammer."

They do. There's a person in the back dressed like Thor holding up
"Your got was nailed to a cross, my God has a hammer, any questions?"

I would have liked the old classic
"Leviticus 16:6: God hates shellfish"
on the back
"Ban Red Lobster"

Here is the transcript of one journalist, Bob Calhoun, with lead WBC Protester Maggie Phelps

BOB CALHOUN: So why are you out here at Comic Con today?

MARGIE PHELPS: well we're out here to say that if were to invest one fraction of the resources that you spend and invest in worshiping Batman, and the Ghostbusters and Buffy the Vampire Slayer and so fourth in reading the Bible and obeying God, this nation would not be (garbled).

BC: You seem to be pretty knowledgeable you threw out Buffy there.

MP: We read the news. It's not hard to track what's going on in this country. This kind of convention would draw a lot more people than, for instance, a convention about obeying God.

BC: What about the Promise Keepers though? The Promise Keepers fill arenas several times bigger than this.

MP: Promise Keepers. Promise Keepers, dot com, potato, po-tah-toe -- all worshiping false Gods.

BC: So the Promise Keepers are worshiping false gods as well...

MP: Of course they are. They are worshiping themselves, first and foremost. It's just another false religion.

BC: So who are the real Gods then?

MP: You mean who are the real servants? There's only one God and you know it and all mankind knows it. It's in your DNA. The Promise Keepers claim to worship the only true and living God, but instead they worship their works and self righteousness and that's every bit as wrong as these foolish people worshiping Batman and all.

BC: Okay, Batman I understand, but why picket the soldiers' funerals.

MP: Because the soldiers are dying for the sins of this nation and the whole world is looking over at those events. They are big, splashy, patriotic pep rallies. We've picketed over 500 of them. They're great, big, giant public events. Why not picket them?

BC: It's really tacky. These people are grieving. These families lost somebody.

MP: They're not grieving. They're angry with God and they're mugging for the cameras, and they're mugging for the cameras and they're bringing all their business outside... Let me finish. They're bringing all their business outside on Front Street and Main Street for everyone to talk about.

BC: At a cemetery? That's Main Street?

MP: Number one, we don't picket cemeteries. We picket on public sidewalks, 30 minutes before the funeral, and we leave when it starts. Have you ever been there picketing? I have. I see what goes on.

BC: But aren't you people just mugging for the cameras? You're here at Comic Con. You're at Ronnie James Dio's funeral. Aren't you just being fame whores just like the whores of Babylon you purport are in there (pointing to the San Diego Convention Center)?

MP: We're using any public forum available to get these words before the eyes and ears of doomed America. (Raising her voice) We are not claiming...

BC: I think you're just fame whores like the people in there (Note: Sylvester Stallone was in there somewhere).

MP: And I don't care. Now going back to what sprung you off onto that side trail, we don't claim that we're privately mourning for our dead son. They do.

BC: How are you supposed to know that though? How are you supposed to know whether they are mourning privately or not? What made you God? Does God speak to you?

MP: By their public actions. I don't care or know or care what they do in private. We don't speak to them in their private quarters. We speak to them when they come out on the public sidewalk. And that's what all of America is doing, bowing down to those dead bodies saying, "God Bless America" like a bunch of fools.

Awesome, good for them for not letting these right wing jack offs win. A+

I love the Commander Shepard sign. So simple, yet so elegant.

uhhuuhh!!! right there, right fucking down there WBC!!!

One word, awesome.

The one weapon in the war agaist hate is unity, understanding, and wicked funny signs!

Mutie:
In the name of Ronnie James Dio and the comic book and alternative art community world, take that you monotheistic shits!!

brother, they don't really believe in god. they use him as a way to make millions off of people when they cross pickett lines and try to bring harm upon their "peaceful" protests. don't spew your omnipitent being stuff here man. we're all gamers, get along with the fact some of us might actually be a part of the non-crazy "monotheistic" stuff. please?

Hurray for the nerds!

Never give nerds time to prepare: they own all.

Who didn't see this coming?

Man, I wish I was there.....

Ha, brilliant.

The right way to respond as well, not getting all pissed off and using violence, but still managing to get back at them in an awesome way!

Suck it, haters. Twisting the words of the bible to suit your own purposes can't help you now!

FlashHero:

A better pic of the spy there...he is my hero..so much win.

That man is a legend! He needs a pinstriped suit for true authenticity though...

Tangentially, isn't it amazing how much a suit can "dress up" someone? Seriously, it even makes wearing a balaclava look classy!

they need to make a Revenge of the Nerds show and make this a episode.

Yay for the nerds! Wish I had been there. :D

Awesome beyond awesomeness.

EPIC!!!

WIN!!!!

NERD POWAAA!!!!

Jbird:
I'm willing to bet anything that God is the biggest Dungeon Master out there. Think about it: His world and His rules.

Next time they protest THAT should be a sign for going against them

KeyMaster45:
Oh that just gives me so much joy to know that when someone decides to troll the greater nerd community, they'll just troll back twenty times harder.

My day has been made :)

-EDIT-
I can't wait to see if we hear any reactions from the WBC protesters about the counter protest.

They will probably say we broke a law protecting notorius pricks.

These ass holes were going to show up to protest a local soldiers funeral about a year back the entire city of cleveland rallyed behind the soldiers family in protest of their protesting. the WBC never showed. it's good to see more people standing up to these hate spewing so-called people of faith. Way to go Nerds!

Oh god I wish an XKCD nerd would have gone into the Westboro protesters and held up an " Everything is pretty ok! " Or " Anyone up for scrabble later? " Signs.

Hmm... I already know what my sign would've been... probably slightly less boring that the Westboros signs... reading something along the lines of "PULL... THE... STICK... OUT..."

These guys protested my school because we had a performance of the Laramie Project. It was pretty pathetic. They had less than 5 people show up. A few people protested against them as well.

"It's in your DNA"? Really?
The only thing I'm sure is in their DNA is bigoted, willfully ignorant bullshit.

Oh man, I haven't laughed this hard in quite a while! To call this "epic win" would be an absolute understatement.

Well played, Comic-Con. Well played.

SteelStallion:
I don't see a pink spy :( Where?!

Religious Fanatics sappin my sentry!

I wish I was there to see all of the signs that protested that church. This church gives all Christians a bad name. This is why the atheists hate Christians because they think we are all like this.

We win, hands down.

Flawless Victory!

(I've checked the photos, yet I can't see the guy holding the sentry sign. He must be one hell of a spy.)

well done comic-con goers. Way to beat the hate.
