This is a link post Glenn Close / Glenn Far
I'm pretty sure this is ripped off from b3ta, uncredited. Anyone?

(Sorry, link probably only works if you have a facebook account. By all means tell everybody if you're cool enough to not have one.)

This is a normal post Mofaha, perhaps?
He has previous with these types of pic.

This is a normal post I am cool enough not to, but still have one.
How do you like them beans?

This is a normal post I think "ripped off" is a bit of a strong way of putting it.
George Takei's web awareness team saw something funny on the internet, and reposted it.

If that's "ripping off" the person who originally made it, we'd better shut down /links immediately.

This is a normal post You're right of course
it IS a bit of a strong way it's just that when a nerdy computery chum links to it as though Takei (Takei!) might be the fount of all that's webwonderful, I'd like to point him to the motherlode.

This is a normal post Heh, fair enough, and I understand where you're coming from.
I've been lucky enough (and believe me it is due to luck) to have had a few b3ta FPs which have gone around the internet once or twice.

Sometimes people get outraged on my behalf at reddit/blogs/whatever that are reproducing something I did. At which point I offer them genuine thanks for their proprietorial outrage, but then feel I have to point out that the whole point of anyone making pictures to post on b3ta is to make people laugh. If a picture takes on a life of its own, then that's great.

This is a normal post I'm calling the Internet Police right now!

This is a normal post Tineye gives 4 matches
none of them anything to do with b3ta

This is a normal post Google Images returns loads of matches
but no b3ta links. And no Pat Sharp/Pat Blurry either.

This is a normal post Presumably if it was ripped from B3ta
the original B3ta artist credited the picture source. Right?


NO.

This is a normal post Ooh, now, I wonder
if that's what I was thinking of. Rather alarmingly I'm going to be 60 in a fortnight's time. I like to think of early-onset dementia as god's way of telling me to chill out more.
