Dave!All morning I've been glued to the WE Channel, which is the Women's Entertainment Channel. Most of the time, I avoid WE like the plague because, well, it's crap isn't it?

But today is different, because it's an English Royalty Marathon!

In an effort to make Americans feel better about the heinous state of our leadership, WE Channel has decided to drag out the glamorous scandals of Great Britain, with a stellar line-up of badly-produced, faux "documentaries" on the Royals. Every hour, there is another tantalizing glimpse into the life and times of The House of Windsor, each more delicious than the last! The titles alone are exciting enough to keep you watching...

  • Diana: Queen of Hearts
  • Princess Camilla: Winner Takes All
  • Prince William & Prince Harry: Prisoners of Celebrity
  • King Charles & Queen Camilla: Into the Unknown
  • Diana's Dresses
  • Harry: The Mysterious Prince

It's all very fascinating, and I've learned so much (Her Majesty The Queen prefers to take her breakfast served from Tupperware containers!). Ultimately, after my hours of research, I've come to the conclusion that I should be King...

Dave King


And my first act as King would be to behead blog plagiarists!

I've already said my peace on the subject... and am starting to see other bloggers venting their frustrations as well (including blogging giant Om Malik). But it's reaching ridiculous heights now, because people think that there is money to be made from blogging, and are desperate to swipe content so they can start raking in the big bucks (ha ha ha). Over Thanksgiving, I was made aware of somebody who decided to rape some of the cartoons I created here... even going so far as to remove copyrights and "improve" the coloring!


I guess on some level you could claim that these alterations of my stuff are "derivative works" which are allowed by my Creative Commons license... but only if you credit the original source (which he didn't) and do not use them for commercial purposes (which he did, as he was clearly using his blog to sell crap). Adding insult to injury, that second "thanks!" cartoon is only displayed here if you leave a comment... which means that the guy actually left me a comment before swiping my stuff! Hey, he may be a thief but, on the other hand, he's got enormous balls!

I've always wanted to end an entry by saying "enormous balls".

    Since it appears to be a slow day, I will ask a question related to an earlier blog…and then make some general comments.

    How much do you pay for your Kellog Morning Star (whatever…) corndogs? I checked them out at our Whole Foods today and they were $4.75 for 4 dogs…man, that is way too much…I can buy a lot of tofu at Trader Joes for that amount…

    When will Lego Dave show up in print at “a bookstore near you” or online?…I think the best part (next to the riveting storyline/plot) is/are the pictures…you are a freaking genious!

    I think the next thing should be a stop action Lego Dave video…

    I’d prefer Emperor.

  3. sandra says:

    Aww, Dave — they can attempt to copy you, but you can’t be duplicated!

    Wow, that came off as really ass-kissy. I think I’ll post it anyway…

  4. trixie says:

    hows about ‘goddess’? i have a sign on my door that says ‘the goddess is in, you may enter’.

    well.. it said ‘princess’ at first, but i wrote over it. ha ha. goddess is more high and mighty.

    kowtow to me, goddess trixie. cower in fear! run, you commoners, run! hahahaha.

    sorry, got a little carried away.

  5. Kevin says:

    Dave King shows up as a broken image file! I want to see Dave King!

    Have you contacted this guy about his plagiarizing or at least providing proper credit?

  6. MRKisThatKid says:

    Hey ever thought of going that colour? It quite suites you, the hair that is. That green is a big mistake.

  7. Dave,

    Plagiarism, punishable by death–spot on!!! Highest form of flattery, my left nut! I say highest form of lack of imagination!

    Enormous Balls,

  8. Peggy Archer says:

    Plagarists need to die – and I can’t believe one of them altered your cartoons!

    What a jerk!

    If you’ll promise public floggings, Dave, I’ll work to support your reign as intergalatic ruler!

  9. apryl says:

    your ending lines are my favorite. you really know how to sum up with hilarity.
