it started in 2000 methinks.. there was a delay in starting the cosplay skits, and a chair on stage... someone decided the chair was the skit.... and thus it began... @.@ anyhoo, it's become a celebrity simply because it was entertaining at first... now it's just driving people insane.... lol. ^_^' and there you have it. ((bows))

I'll probably get bopped over the head for saying this, but I think the chair joke is still funny. I like the fact that Otakon has it's own inside joke, even if it's sorta lame. If they left the box on stage from that one masquerade skit for a half second longer, we might have had another epidemic on our hands, though... scary thought.

We are, methinks. Watch what happens at Otakon 10 (2003). Too bad people are so ignorant as to what it really means and how lame it really is.

I was there for the "Down with Chair, Up with Box" Shit

Chair is ok, but ya just have to know how far to take it. But I agree, I think it is cool that otakon has its own inside joke.

It was funny at first, but it just grows old.. let's beat that dead horse some more! Yeeha! ^-^; Although I agree it's cool that Otakon has its own jokes and whatnot, but can we move on please? ;_; Something new! Newww!

I thought it was funny too at first, but any joke (good or bad) gets old. ^_^' I think if people lighten up about it a little (not stop, per say, just ease up on it...) it'll be best... besides the fact that the Otakon staff now will not try to kill everyone who says the "Ch" word, but also because it'll be funnier if it springs up out of no where once and again... you know? ^_^' bwah. that's just my two cents.

...

of doom.

...

yah. I'm going back to bed. ^_^'

i giggle at first when they start with 'chair'... then i wish it would stop. lol

sadly, it may have started at otakon... but now its not just an otakon joke... hence why i think people have gotten tired of it... it spread to other cons as well. they were doing it katsucon last year...

O.o
