Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of February we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 196 people to reach our goal of 3,100 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in March!

Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

I gave this a four bc it's a long gag that is timed well; however, it may not tick the box of funny for feminists.

Ticking the box of funny for feminists isn't on my list of comedic priorities, indeed. ;)

Could at least give Louis CK credit for telling this story on Talking Funny on HBO. Totally plagiarized.

jazmik responds:

To whoever is reading this,

If one would indeed look up and watch the mentioned segment of Talking Funny, it would immediately be evident why the ''totally plagiarized'' claim that is voiced in the above comment is simply false.

Louis CK tells an anecdote about him visiting a local comedy club one night and seeing a performer do a remarkably uninspired parody of 'The Dock of The Bay'. My cartoon makes a direct nod to this parody. (Which intellectually doesn't belong to Louis CK but to the nameless performer.)

The overall scene in my cartoon is in no way plagiarized, and has absolutely nothing to do with the story Louis CK tells on Talking Funny.

If we were all to handle BrushMonkey's standard of what constitutes ''plagiarism'', 90% of Newgrounds's content then should be subjected to similar scrutiny. Note for instance, that among BrushMonkey's favorite movies, we can find ''Awesome Reach'', a Halo parody. Totally plagiarized?
If we were to follow BrushMonkey's logic: yes. Totally plagiarized.

General advice: Don't make inaccurate claims, and get a firmer grip on the difference between plagiarism and forms of genuine intertextuality. Or perhaps your memory is playing tricks on you in this case, and in your mind Louis CK did actually tell a story which, word for word, follows the script of this cartoon.

i said what what

It's all about the build up XD

The end made me laugh more than I should have
