Rip-Off Artist (Hack Job V)

Haven't posted one of these in a while - came across a particularly egregious example on Facebook, one that rips off an immediately recognizable creator. The signature style of Clay Bennett is so easy to pick out, it's doubly stupid to A) clumsily crop off the name, and B) add insult to injury by adding someone else's name to the piece. Idiots.

Shame on Super Hero Stuff, and especially Meme Center, who went even further by poorly substituting different captions, in addition to crediting themselves (syndicates just love that sort of infringement). Talentless hacks, you really can't get any shittier than that when stealing someone's work - but maybe they'll win a Pulitzer from this putz.


  1. There are not enough hours in the day for me to properly hate that I needs hating. But I'm moving this to the top of my list.

  2. Like I said, there's a strain of free entertainment entitlement in internet culture stemming from people who have never created anything at all their entire lives, which is in many ways a far worse of a tragedy in itself than ripping off other people.
