Get your San Diego Comic Con 2011 Registration Disaster Fail Frog button

The Fail Frog

This weekend’s sellout of the San Diego Comic-Con was a disappointment for many and ultimately satisfying for some — but no doubt everyone got tired of seeing the TicketLeap frog when they refreshed their browser.

Now Isotope Comics in San Francisco is commemorating the occasion with a free pin, featuring the newly coined “Fail Frog.”

“Because I know you’ve all been looking at this frog for what seems like forever, we’ve decided to brighten your day a little and bring a great big smile to your face,” writes storeowner James Sime. “The Isotope is going to hook you up with your very own San Diego Comic Con 2011 Registration Disaster commemorative Fail Frog button absolutely free of charge! Why? Because we’re just such huge sweethearts! Send a letter to the Isotope address with a self addressed stamped return envelope and I will personally send you one of these Fail Frog pinback beauties while our supplies last.”

Isotope is located at 26 Fell Street, San Francisco, CA 94102.



Too funny!

Funny but sadly appropriate. I am actually interested in the Sunday feedback panel when people are certain to bring up the horrible experience of buying tickets. Hopefully they will listen and change the system.

Four days later and I have to say that every single person I’ve spoken to, including those people who sent me SASEs today, [I]all of them[/I] got tickets to Comic Con! Sure those elusive 4 day passes sold out immediately (they always do) and the servers were chugging a bit for a few hours there… but these TicketLeap folks did their job and got all of us and all of you into Comic Con. And instead of dropping the lawyer hammer on me for my offer, they posted some very nice things on my website.

I gotta give it up to them. That frog kind of rocks!
