Alton Brown follow-up

When we saw Alton Brown on his current book tour, at one point he asked everyone in the assembled crowd to pretend they were asleep so he could take a picture with his digital camera and post it on his website. Which he has done, as you can see here. And the lovely blonde woman front row in the extreme left of the picture is none other than She Who Must Be Obeyed.

But that's not what I'm blogging this for.

No, I instead direct your attention to the insipid couple seated right next to She Who Must Be Obeyed, who rivalled the Gelatinous Cube from last February's Neil Gaiman event for sheer neighborly annoyingness. For starters, they were both fans of the insane stalker variety; they announced to everyone else around them that they'd seen Alton earlier in the day at another book store. The male half of the couple smelled funny, and, as you can see from the picture, he was one of those seat hogs who is somehow entitled to three chairs' worth of ass and leg room because he's a bigger fan than everyone else. And the female half, as you can see, lacked the class to actually go along with the gag, and instead is looking at the camera.
