FYI Friday: Stealing Is Wrong

Some people say, “Imitation is the best form of flattery.”

I prefer the version offered by Jim Carrey: “Imitation is the best form of plagiarism.”

First, Scoman and Princess of Sarcasm steal my STICKMAN concept.


Adrienzgirl copies my idea of asking stupid questions that no one really gives a flip about.

This, from a supposed “friend”.

Et tu, brute?*

At least the first two violators gave me some credit.

My lawyers will be contacting you soon, Ms. Think Tank Momma.

Regardless, I am throwing out another idea that I am sure someone will “borrow”.

FYI Fridays

Here goes:

FYI: Tree huggers do not take their jobs seriously. You never hear of one dying in a forest fire.

FYI: Fingernails do not make good building materials. AND are a bitch to hammer when actually trying to.

FYI: Wednesday is not called Hump Day for the reasons you think. It is not a license to hump the leg of every female you pass by at work. (At least according to the nice people in HR, who think they know everything. Next, they’ll tell me “TGI Friday” doesn’t really stand for “Touch, Grab, & Intercourse Friday.”)

FYI: Telling your boss you are really bi-racial, because you are black from the waist down, might be considered sexual harassment.

FYI(Guys): When the doctor says he wants to check your PSA, he doesn’t mean Public Service Announcement.

FYI: Not every guy who comes to your house wearing a brown shirt and driving a truck works for UPS. Sometimes garbage men wear brown shirts. And sometimes your packages end up at the dump.

FYI: When a retiring coworker jokes that the next time you see them will most likely be at their funeral, it might be taken the wrong way if you reply, “I hope to see you soon then.”

*I might have just copied using latin-y type words in a post from Vita Brevis. (SEE BRANDEE! That’s how you give proper credit!)

P.S. Stay tuned for Old Guy Office Mate special farewell retirement vlogging.

I copy mjenks all the time because he's slow and doesn't notice.

My HR department thinks I'm funny. I'm my HR department...

I also sexually harass my coworker on a daily basis. But he got me knocked up first so we are even.

I'm pretty sure that I am older than you, and according to my momma, I have been asking ridiculous questions since I learned to speak, soooo...I didn't STEAL that shit from you.

However, if it makes you feel better, since you know, I am Molly Fucking Ray of Sunshine these days and all, I will write a whole post and share how awesome your humor is and how inspired I am by it. Wouldn't want you to "feel" bad.

Coming soon to a blog near you...."Ed...the Man who inspires"

You know what I just realized? People are copying you AND I dont see a Google friend box on here.... EW. Does that mean youre a "big blogger" now?

That One Mom said...

Wow, look at you all salty pants... I'm pretty sure I read a comment from you on said "copycat post" claiming that like you, Brandee has a great mind and giving her props for her brilliance... Just sayin'...

You are right that fingernails are not building materials. They are tools for building. (Scraper, Screwdriver, etc.)

BigSis said...

Ha ha. Not all brown shirts are UPS men. Have to remember that one. said...

FYI: I want to suck face with Friday. :)

Tamara aka Cheapskate Mom said...

Ooooh Ed are you a "Big Blogger?" I didn't notice your box was missing. Wait...did you have a box at one time? Whoa. TMI man!

So...was it a big box?

Hey what is a "big blogger" anyway? Whether you have 5 followers or 5000 followers it doesn't make you a "Big Blogger" does it?

Do you have to weigh a lot to be a "Big Blogger?" Hmmm I want details about this whole "Big Blogger" nonsense.

What the hell am I going on about Big Bloggers for? What was your post about again? Steph has me off track, lol I gotta go back to bed.

I STILL think Hump Day is middle-of-the-week sex day. You mean it's not?

Black from the waist down. A man can dream I suppose.

ScoMan said...

In my defense, I only stole Stickman because I wanted to.

The Demigoddess said...

I'd be so lucky to meet a bi-racial! How do I find guys like that? Size matters a lot, ya know.

Momma Fargo said...

Stickman copied? Stickman wasn't patented? Oh, no!
