Best. Counterprotest. Ever.

Fred “GOD HATES FAGS” Phelps and his band of hate-mongering motherfuckers like to show up and “protest” at various public events, funerals of soldiers, etc. seeking publicity for their twisted cause, and ultimately hoping to inflame to the point that someone punches one of them out and they can sue—that's literally the Westboro Baptist Church business model.

Well they had no idea what they were dealing with when they set up shop across from the San Diego ComicCon.
Unbeknownst to the dastardly fanatics of the Westboro Baptist Church, the good folks of San Diego's Comic-Con were prepared for their arrival with their own special brand of superhuman counter protesting chanting "WHAT DO WE WANT" "GAY SEX" "WHEN DO WE WANT IT" "NOW!" while brandishing ironic (and some sincere) signs. Simply stated: The eclectic assembly of nerdom's finest stood and delivered.
The photos are filled with all kinds of win.

Is this ANOTHER post we both duplicated or did Smitty pilfer from you?

This is the only time I could laugh at a story about the Westburo Baptist freaks.

No way. I totally scooped Furious.

As a fellow nerd, I am so proud. We did it right; no violence. Just snark.

Hah! I'm glad I checked here before posting similar content.

I'd dearly love to have seen the chant.
