I heard the word "furry" as a noun in early September, 2016. The curious person I was, I searched Wiktionary and found out about this fandom/subculture interested in humanoid animals. I found a KnowYourMeme entry on the night of September 8th, 2016 and joined the fandom that night.
I tend to remind them that while some of us furries are messed up, we are philanthropic and charitable; meanwhile anti-furs oftentimes shamelessly fantasize about mass-murder and are responsible for multiple acts of mass-hacking and a terrorist attack.
There's this smoked mac and cheese recipe my family has been perfecting and it's my favorite dish. Following close behind, though, are loaded cheese fries, buffalo chicken, bone-in barbecue, ham and cheese, mustard and Papa John's pizza.
