So is McSweeney's under a Creative Commons license or something?

Um. No, Skye, not that I know of. Point taken.

Normally I'd never repost another's work in its entirety, but this was so funny as a whole -- it being the 10 Commandments and all -- that I couldn't decide how to excerpt it.

I just visited your website, Skye, and read your post How to Use Other People's Words and Pictures On Your Blog (Without Getting Burned or Being a Jerk).

I think twitter and the recent rise of the retweeting ethos -- retweets as the ultimate compliment & a way to promote work you admire (perhaps helping anothers' work go viral) -- may have affected my not-very-good decision to post the whole McSweeney's piece.

It's just that McSweeney's is often so funny and so few people I know ever read it.

I DID contribute my own photoshopped image to this post -- although I readily happily concede that neither the Sistine Chapel nor the idea of making humorous alterations to the famous image are mine.

In all honesty when I had clicked through to McSweeney's, I hadn't seen an explicit copyright notice which surprised me - so I thought I might have been missing something. I know they don't need a notice to have copyright protection, but it's rare to see an online magazine without one. I wonder if they feel like it detracts from their minimalist style?

I enjoy a good McSweeney's now and again. This was funny. I'm taking it viral!

LilaTovCocktail June 9, 2009 at 9:51 PM  

Yes, take it viral. I don't know why McSweeney's isn't part of everyone's weekly diet.
