Last Friday I had an article titled “Evony and Irony“. I thought it was clever in a stupid pun sort of way. Then someone pointed out that Christopher C. Livingston already used that joke a few months ago. This stung a little, since Livingston is famous for doing a GMod comic, and now I do a semi-GMod comic, and therefore I sometimes get a little crap from people for “stealing” his idea.
Anyway, it’s always preferable when the less famous person manages to fire off the joke before the more famous one. If the two Dragon Age comics had appeared in the opposite order, I’m sure I’d get flak for “stealing” the idea.
Spying on those guys is really paying off.
