Okay people, the picture stealing has gone too far. If you’ve been around here long (or any well-known photog’s blog for that matter) then you realize it’s not uncommon for images to be stolen from one site and used for random purposes on another. It’s annoying at best, rage-inducing at worst but unfortunately it’s one of the nasty facts of life when operating in the digital age. But I have to ask, is nothing sacred?
Apparently there is an image of my husband, father, and father-in-law gracing the 103rd page of the longest thread ever to hit the TigerDroppings.com message board. Nevermind why I know someone who would get to the 103rd page of a thread on an LSU fan message board. The point is, I’m glad he did.
And the other point is, WHAT?! Is nothing sacred people?! You know I had to get a screen shot. For my attorney and all. And also because as much as I want to be annoyed, it kind of made me giggle. Okay, not kind of. More like, it made me laugh out loud.
See in the midst of whatever argument these neurotic sports fans are having about college football someone tries to take a shot at an Auburn girl on the forum by asking her, “would you hit any of these three guys?” I’ll admit that for the last 24 hours I’ve been confused by the question. Why in the world would a girl want to hurt any of these poor unsuspecting men? But then my husband kindly pointed out that he didn’t think I had the correct understanding of the question. And my dad said I needed to spend more time in the halls of America’s high schools to get “down with the vernacular.”
Then the scales fell from my eyes and I saw the question in its intended light.
And after I picked my jaw up off the floor I smoothed my skirt, straightened my posture and thought, “as a matter of fact, BradPitt, poster-on-the-103rd-page-of-what-might-be-the-most-ridiculous-message-board thread-of-all-time, yes. Yes, I would. The one in the middle thankyouverymuch.”
Bet Mr. BradPitt, poster-on-the-103rd-page-of-what-might-be-the-most-ridiculous-message-board-thread-of-all-time, didn’t see that one coming did he? Then again, he didn’t think I’d ever see this thread.
Dude, bad move. I’ve got eyes all over these internets. And I’m putting you people on notice. No more stealing pictures from my blog.
And hands off my Dad.
