Thou shalt not downvote. Read “The Ten Commandments of Reddit’s r/Atheism” and more funny articles on CollegeHumor
A hotel set was built for (fellow Keystone comic) Mabel Normand’s picture Mabel’s Strange Predicament and I was hurriedly told to put on a funny make-up. This time I went to the wardrobe and got a pair of baggy pants, a tight coat, a small derby hat and a large pair of shoes. I wanted the clothes to be a mass of contradictions, knowing pictorially the figure would be vividly outlined on the screen. To add a comic touch, I wore a small mustache which would not hide my expression. My appearance got an enthusiastic response from everyone, including Mr. Sennett. The clothes seemed to imbue me with the spirit of the character. He actually became a man with a soul—a point of view. I defined to Mr. Sennett the type of person he was. He wears an air of romantic hunger, forever seeking death, but his feet won’t let him.
I know I’ve posted stuff like this before, but here it goes again. Here’s a dude who took an article Will wrote, reformatted it, and posted the entirety of it to his blog with no indiction of its author or source.
He does link to the original article, but in a line of text that does not appear to be a link, and is completely redundant after reading the whole article on his site. In this comment thread he tries to defend his actions in the most dickish way possible. For the record: no, this is not okay. And on the asshole spectrum “posting JPEGS of text” falls way, way below “stealing content.”
By all mean, share content, but at least follow some basic rules of decency.
HEY THANKS MIKE
My last wife was 47 years older than me.”
“Yep. We met when she was 80 and I was 33. She came to the nursing home where I worked, and everyday she would spend six hours with her dying husband. I said to myself: ‘If she ever loves me like that, I’ll be OK.’ We married a couple years later, and stayed together until she died at the age of 96. If I had any money, I’d make a movie about it.”
