Jerks

We don't normally break into Johnny's world to complain about anything in the outside world, but we got honked off this weekend and just need to vent.

Several weeks ago, we introduced the one-and-only Johnny Optimism t-shirt on Amazon (which you can see in all it's glory right here).

So imagine our shock when, while doing a little self-Googling (despite Mom's warning that we'd go blind) we discovered a complete buttload of shirts and hoodies being offered by other vendors who'd flat out stolen our design from Amazon's product page! (Note: the shirts are NOT being sold on Amazon - rather, they're being sold on crappy knock-off sites which are powered by the Shopify.com print on demand service)


Oh, it's not like any of these filthy thieving weasels is going to get rich selling these shirts. I think we've made about $5 in total royalties, and everyone who's even heard of Johnny is already here!

Still, there's a principle involved. We've filed the proper paperwork to get these bloodsucking leeches to cease and desist, and Shopify.com claims they're going to take action.

Which is a damn good idea if they don't want to hear little wooden webbed feet tap-tap-tapping their way some dark night.

Fear

I don't normally base these cartoons on actual news stories, but when I read that dentists can smell fear I pretty much didn't have a choice.

Of course, most people can smell fear if the terrified person has explosively filled their Fruit of the Looms.

Youtube

Behind the scenes: there really IS such a video because I just posted it (though am not making the link public in the interest of good taste - which is a rarity for me).

And I'm definitely not making fun of people with seizure disorders; rather, the person in the video is me and I'm recording footage of conscious night time seizure activity I've been having recently (probably a side effect of a medication I'm discontinuing) in order to have documentation for my doctors.

But adding music to the video was done, as Pepe says above, strictly for style points. (grin)
