Warning: This Night & Day article will self-destruct upon completion. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to accrue autographs and uncomfortable photographs from the most random hodgepodge of C-list celebrities to ever share South Florida's oxygen. Your targets are Richard Roundtree (Shaft), the Soup Nazi (Seinfeld), Leslie Nielsen (Naked Gun), Mike Teavee (no kidding, Mike Teavee from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), and Less Than Jake (ska band). You will need lots of Mountain Dew Game Fuel. You will not need to shower. Your mission will be completed this weekend at the Florida Supercon at the Doubletree Miami Convention Center.
Your identity, which must remain confidential, can be maintained through cosplay. Entering a contest or partaking in a costume workshop is encouraged. Intel suggests the best course of action to be a Jigglypuff costume. Also, comic creators Ariel Olivetti (Cable), Bill Sienkiewicz (Sandman: Endless Nights), Fred van Lente (Amazing Spider-Man), and Khoi Pham (Mighty Avengers) will be available to sketch half-naked women for you. Admission costs $20 for one day or $40 for a weekend pass. You will obtain these funds through your new undercover job as a Mario the Baker delivery driver. Good luck may the Force, Green Lantern's light, and the Power-Cosmic be with you.
