63,000 virginal comic fans packed the convention center last weekend, setting a new record for the city.

The Beat is reporting that C2E2 drew 63,000 attendees this year, up 10,000 from the previous year. The number marks a new record for largest gathering of losers in the history of the great city of Chicago, beating out football games featuring the Chicago Bears, who play in a stadium with a capacity of 61,500. Chicago Cubs games at Wrigley Field have slipped to number three, with a capacity of 41,000. However, Chicaco Cubs fans themselves retain their number one status in degree of loserdom. Outhouse reporters Zechs, Sarah Sed, and The Indy Hunter proudly contributed to the tally.
Asked for comment on the influx of losers to Chicago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel told The Outhouse that he hadn't noticed any difference and chided us for needlessly insulting not only the city and its beleaguered sports teams, but also all of our own readers by implying that comic con attendees are losers.
"Insulting the masses by region seems to be the only kind of insult you can toss around without getting in trouble nowadays," explained Columbus Ohio based Outhouse Editor in Chief Christian Hoffer, shrugging his shoulders. "Chicago should take solace in the fact that they aren't Cleveland."
Shouldn't we all? Keep reading The Outhouse for more insults and slander, you fucking masochists.
