Heyas, readers!

We’re keeping on keeping on here at ROFLCon HQ with all the guest announcements, and I’m happy to confirm all the rumors today that internet elder statesman and awesome dude Aaron Peckham, the creator of the internet knowledge repository that is Urban Dictionary, will be attending (and speaking at) ROFLCon II.

If you’re like me, Urban Dictionary figures prominently in the development of your knowledge of obscure pop culture exclamations, rage-filled commentary, and (probably, mostly, hopefully fictional) prohibitively nasty sex acts. It’d be difficult to estimate how many total hours of fascinated clicking have been lost on the site, internet-wide.

Also, if you lost track, the site has been up for a decade and now contains 4.8 million definitions. Outta control. In any case, Urban Dictionary’s seriously great, and we’re excited to have Aaron there. Welcome!
