Due to current HorrorHound policy, no baseball bats wrapped in real barbed wire will be allowed in the convention center. If you would like Jeffrey Dean Morgan to sign a real bat. Then all barbed wire must be removed and left at home. This is also an ordinance with the Sharonville Police Department that a baseball bat wrapped in real barb wire is considered a deadly weapon and safety hazard and will be confiscated without warning. So please leave the barbed wire at home. Thanks
The only people that would be mad about this are the people standing at their dining room table right now with a fake beard on and bloody fingertips currently wrapping barbed wire around their bat.
Don't complain about it. I was told no real chainsaw chain for a prop I was using, I changed it out. It's more to make sure you don't accidentally hurt someone. People don't look when they are walking, some people push into crowds, and kids wander off. Do you really want to be sued because your prop cut someone? Be smart
I would think this common sense but then again I know some idiot would have
It took me 5 seconds to take the barb wire off my bat and it will go back on just as easy. I agree with this. Its not just for everyone's safety, but we also don't want Jeffrey Dean Morgan getting cut on barb wire and getting pissed and leave.
50 people walking around in a packed place with a barb wire bat over their shoulders, surely someone will get snagged, it obviously should have been announced weeks ago but damn, imagine the temper tantrums you'd be having if you caught one across the face on accident. Common sense really.
Make sure you keep a baseball glove in your trunk with your bat. Your lawyer will thank you later.
This is the best thing I have seen on Facebook in literal months.
On a side note... coffe is hot. Sad part is if it wasn't said, there'd be that one person......
Is it okay if the bat is saturated in Glenn's blood and brain matter?
Could I still bring a machete for Kane Hodder to sign?
The fact that you have to state this and people will still be upset will be completely mind blowing.
Horrorhound coming out with jokes since the magazine is dead
Hilarious and sad that this even had to be said!!
Hey HHW crew... good luck!
Can we get there around 12
Isn't this just common sense? It'd be too easy to snag someone in these crowded rooms.
Here's your sign!
What about the toy replica with the plastic barbed wire?
Yes. It's very sad that you have to make these disclaimers to adults. This is reality though.
This post needs to go viral
Baseball bats alone have never hurt anyone, tho.
Rubber barbwire can be purchased online for fairly cheap.
what about metal striping around a bat like in 31?
Is dynamite ok?
