Danke Schön

Phoenix Comicon is now part of history, but one part of it will haunt me until my final days. At my first panel, “The Science of Science Fiction,” multiple-Hugo-award-winning author John Scalzi noted the stage was set up like a runway. Ty Franck—also a popular sci-fi author—engaged Scalzi in a series of dares that escalated quickly into a promise of a dollar if Scalzi walked the runway and sang, “Danke Schön.”

This is what happened next.

I believe the feedback is clear proof that gods exist, and they watch over those of us who sing a cappella.

Franck gave Scalzi a dollar, and the gods were appeased.

(N.B.: Yes, I know I held the phone the wrong way. I was in a hurry and panicked.)

It's a fan thing
