    Default Buy all the OTTBs meme

    Got a good chuckle from Canter Mid-Atlantic facebook posting of a meme cartoon.

    https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater

    Who know's, maybe someone will discover the perfect OTTB from Mid Atlantic thanks to the fun cartoon.

    And, to share the original source - back after a long break - Hyperbole and a Half (completely non-horse related, put providing the primary source of the meme graphic):

    I loooooooooove the canter peeps. And that is funny. Nothing says "rage" like those Hyperbole and a Half cartoons. I especially love the "faces of pain" cartoon.

    That being said I hope CANTER got permission from Hyperbole and a Half to use her image. I know she's working on a book etc. and probably intends to use her drawings/stories in there.

    Bump for Allie Brosh's meme used for CANTER's fun post. And congrats to her on her new book. Here is a look at the original cartoon and interview:

    Yes - Buy all the OTTBs.

    I can't even appreciate it, that misplaced apostrophe bothers me too much!

    "Clean all the things" has been so widely used for so many years that I doubt Allie would notice or care.

    Her publisher might! I bought the book but its a gift so I haven't cracked it.... And using someone else's image isn't nice, even if others do it too...

    I think that's kinda how memes work, though.

    Extending a CONCEPT and copying an image are slightly different

    One us arguably a fair use, the other much less so

    It's a meme--that's how the internet works. There are literally thousands upon thousands of other versions of "all the things" that have been made for a really long time.

    There are generators to make anything you want, just like the ridiculous one I whipped up. People weren't even aware of them until they started appearing on Facebook in the somewhat recent past, but I promise you these things are OLD and it's widely accepted to use them anywhere you please online.

    Trying to copyright a meme is like Beyonce's PR people saying "we want this photo removed from the internet." (here's the photo in question: http://i.imgur.com/VdiqxLh.jpg )

    From Allie's FAQ page on her blog:

    Can I use your artwork in my blog/Facebook page/company newsletter/school project/classroom/online magazine etc.?


    You absolutely can as long as you credit me for my work. Proper credit includes a prominent, easily visible link to the source of the material you want to use, except in the instance of Facebook profile pictures... go ahead and use my stuff there without citing. As long as you aren't claiming to have drawn the picture yourself, I'm happy that you like it enough to use it as your profile picture.


    However, I'd like to ask you to refrain from doing complete re-posts of my work without getting my permission first. If you want to use a whole blog post for something (aside from teaching - go ahead teachers!), best to ask me first.
