Grand Theft Blog

I was going to let sleeping dogs lie but I have been accused of stealing or blogarism. I am not going to mention any names but here is what happened. On Wednesday, I posted a blog with 2 interesting photos and asked whoever stopped by to post some funny captions. Those of you who know what I am talking about also know that I began this very blog by stating that I had seen this idea by several other bloggers and thought it was a cool idea and wanted to give it a try. That's it -- nothing fancy. I never took credit for the idea. Well today someone accused me of stealing their idea. I kindly apologized and said I was inspired and didn't steal their idea. The accuser would have nothing of it. I even removed the so-called offensive blogarism from my blog as a peace offering, but they were steadfast in their conviction. I tried to take the high road but I have been fuming about this more and more this evening.
I guess the accuser must feel like Al Gore when he invented the Internet.
The accuser seems to think this is an original idea. I guess kind of like when I thought I discovered an awesome new trick in the 6th grade when I learned that my penis could spit stuff out after I rubbed it a few times. Or when my wife and I went to an exotic location after we got married for a week to relax after the wedding. People should really do this and if the travel agency started marketing it right with a clever name they could really make a fortune.
I guess I am disappointed because I found the accusers blog entertaining and amusing but I can't see a reason to visit the blog anymore because the accuser got so pissed off about something so petty. If I went on the accusers blog and stole their post word for word then you would have a reason to be mad but come on you are not the inventor of the caption contest. Maybe I am wrong, if so, then you better fire off a cease and desist letter to the fine folks at Maxim because they have stolen the idea as well. You might want to send one off to these fellas too because they even use the same day as you.
So in honor of Jayson Blair, Hollywood, boob jobs, reality tv, the New England Patriots, parents who name their kids Emily, people who watched "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" on July 30, 2003, this jerkoff in North Providence, Rhode Island, these dudes and Jason Lee, I proudly present this completely unoriginal, stolen and totally ripped off idea. I shall call you, the day wedged between Thursday and Saturday funny caption day. Enjoy yourself.

"You should see what I can shoot out of my ass!"


  1. Yes, I know it is only Thursday when I posted this so the official title is not quite accurate but work with me.

  2. I had your back, dude. I think I'd like to start a blog, written by a female, that details sexual exploits. Sort of Sex in the City--in cyberspace. Cuz, you know, you don't see too many of those.

  3. I appreciated your support. I tried not to be a dick but I think the accuser was so full of shit. Plus I didn't want to start a flame war on the accuser's turf. Anyway I think I got my point across and I feel much better about the situation.

  4. Yes, but you are not the only person in my blogging kingdom that does funny captions so for you to think I got the idea just from you blog alone is very egotistical of you and completely misguided.

  5. Hey shife! That caption contest idea of yours is funny stuff! Fark has been doing it for awhile too, but whatever. Drew probably won't throw a shit fit if you decide to have one of your own, since a lot of sites have been doing it for years. Keep 'em comin, buddy!

  6. Ummm, I might talk about bowling, making out with dudes on my front porch or Mexicans tomorrow so do I need to clear this with you?

    It was just coincidence.
    Fark and nicolemart have been doing captions on their sites and I have had their links up way longer than yours. You also talked about football on your blog Monday as well, and holy crap, I talked about football on Tuesday.
    I am pretty sure someone inspired you to start blogging and you probably did some blog surfing to get some inspiration for how you wanted your site to look.

    You have a great blog and it helped inspire me, but too give yourself all the credit is crazy.

  7. I am Norway...
    I think both of you guys are funny...

    Let's go sing kum-bay-a...

  8. And T. Leach is God. I bow to this master of humor..

  9. dude, just let it go...

    "can't we all just get along??"

  10. Hey, thanks LB. You're not so unfunny yourself. ;)

  11. You're right, toto.

    Steph, I'm sorry about the Sex and the City thing. You're better looking than those hags.

  12. I am biting my tongue at Justice's comments and just letting things go. It's a wide, wide, blog world out there and plenty of room for both of us.

  13. "original to my part of the blogging world ?"-steph

    lol !!!

    Alright now, I've got Colorado and Florida- any of you f#ckers go there, it means war !!!
