Michael Hussey's blog Pushing Rope
, where I cross post my comix, has been running a series of posts
about The Tampa Bay Tribune Online using bloggers content without paying the bloggers.
We had a good chuckle about the possibility of them
using some of my recent strips ridiculing the republicans. The Birthers, led by Karl Rove's John Birth Society, get's Larry Craig to search for Obama's foreskin because Obama's foreskin wants to kill Sarah Palin's Down Syndrome baby.Or, hahaha, wouldn't it be funny if the Tampa Bay Tribune online used the Dick Cheney Milkboarding Machine that Photobucket censored. I figured the chances are pretty low that The Tampa Tribune would run my stuff. It ain't Marmaduke, after all.
So, I get an email from Michael today...Tampa Tribune running Zencomix
See for yourself.
And to my shock, they reprinted the Fore Skin strip.
I'm still looking at their site archives to determine how long they've been using my copyrighted material, besides Foreskin 500
, Birther Pangs of Democracy
, and C-Street Deli is Good For Your Belly
, so I know how much to charge them on the invoice.
I'm a Dugan, a Teamster, nephew of Boston newspaper union man Charlie Dugan, "The Man Who Made Murdoch Sweat", and I will be paid.
