This morning on the way to town on our local bus proceeding over the collection of pot-holes that our local council laughingly call a road, we went over one particularly violent bump and my wife said 'Was it anyone we know?'

An ex colleague at work dicovered an arabic curse which translates as 'May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits'. It used to come in very handy on a bad day!

Dear what you get,
satire on:
In an effort to head off any actionable lawsuits of yours I have taken pre emptive action. I have just copyrighted the English language with a little inside help from the administration. They were amazed no one had thought of it before. While the ownership of the copyrite is divided between DARPA, NSA and other silent partners, my finders fee portion is still significant when you add up all the words you've published.

AFTER RESEARCHING THE TOTALITY OF YOUR PUBLISHED WORKS I WILL BE SENDING YOU THE BILL.

For example the quote:

I dare say her cheese done slipped off her cracker.

if copyrighted might cost .025 cents
However if I enforce my copyright for everyone who ever wrote that I would stand to clear nearly 4 cents.

But add up all the English words you have published and I might stand to make hundreds.


Satire aside, Common sayings indeed belong to us all, thats why they're common. Yours are yours.

Satire reinstated:
Nothing spoils a good time more than lawyerfyin bout yer words
but if there is one thing I have learned about an assumed copyright on the web is that it ain't worth the electrons its written on.
I would have to consult with Dave Letterman about what is and what is not intellectual property.
I am sincerely sorry if you thought I was going to make millions of dollars off of your catch phrases. If I do I will gladly buy you lunch on a slippery slope.

satire off,
I planned to post the illustrated versions I already made of some of the favourite and best sayings here, although they should still be protected under fair use, I hope you see them as a sincere gesture of giving and not taking.

That's where the surgeon removes a square flap of skin about ten inches wide by 6 inches vertical from the area immediately below the navel and replaces it with a piece of plexiglass. This allows the patient to see what he is doing with his head up his ass.

Some people WILL mind and even if it is only one, it's not OK to assume what might be OK with others. Lot of writers around here. Lot of threads where marketable writing occurs. Doing something like this in one thread sets a precedent, and I know several who will not go down that slippery slope and for good reason.

Max has copyright on anything here not copyrighted by anyone else, and general consensus has been that we each own whatever we post. One MIGHT be able to make the case that posting such a notice at the start of each thread would be adequate, but certainly not in mid-thread, and certainly not as stated.

In any event, it's not OK with me in this thread or anywhere.
