Lol...didn’t say it was originally mine. Fairly old joke, actually.

Well ya said ya created it lol. They are almost exactly the same except for the comma you left out. Which is better by the way ;)

This one isn't that bad, it hasn't been circulated through the entire internet yet. I pointed out one earlier that has been on every meme site there is.

My only goal is that pointing them out will slow down how many of them their are. It's gotten to be a bit much. One every once and a while with a bit of honesty thrown in isn't a bad thing. I appreciate you being honest.... a bit late but still it shows you aren't capable of straight out lying when questioned about it.

I hope your first front pager was something you created on your own. It's so much more satisfying that way...

Compadre, I never tried to say this was my own, original joke...nor did I imply that it was mine any more than anyone who posts a meme does. I wasn't claiming anything as my own, either implicitly or outright, but I also don't bother to say "I didn't come up with this" every time I tell a joke to someone. If they ask if I came up with it, more than happy to tell them that I didn't. But until they display curiosity in the joke's origins, I'm going to assume they don't care if it's original any more than I did when I first heard it.

It's not a case of honesty or dishonesty. Dishonesty requires willful intent to obfuscate the truth or to allow others to labor under a false assumption. There was no willful intent involved; again, I'm not going to bother qualifying myself with "this isn't my joke..." every time I tell a joke.

And now I'm beating my head against my desk, because I've just wasted 20 minutes typing this when I had plenty of actually important things to do with my time.

It took you twenty minutes to type that? Look at your meme bro, the first box says "create meme of grumpy cat." You do know what the word create means right? It means you brought something into creation, that you made it.

You knew this was a repost, you could have at least found a new pic to go with the old joke that improved it. I wasn't trying to come down on you before but you had to go and get all whiny about it.

Telling a joke to people is not making a meme on a meme site. You want to pass that crap around on facebook go ahead, you want to text it to your buddies no problem. This site is for making new memes not copying old ones exactly then acting all butthurt because you got caught. It would have taken a 5 minute google search for you to find a better pic and at least not copied everything.

Here I just threw this together... it's not that hard to add something new to an old joke. If it is then you are probably in the wrong place, sorry, just being honest...

You need, my good sir, to get over yourself. Let me point out that, regardless of originality, the meme made the front page. Clearly some people enjoyed it, and didn't care about whether or not it was the first time this joke had ever been told using a Grumpy Cat template.

I'm very well aware of how complaintive some people on this site can be about reposts. Nor do I care, in this case. You're the only one getting bent out of shape about it, since you have taken upon yourself the duties of Meme-Originality-Police. I suggest you find something a trifle more important to exert yourself over. As I intend to do myself after wasting my own time by completing this post.

I didn't care how many upvotes this meme received when I posted it, I don't care now. I'm truthfully surprised it made it as high as it did; I originally submitted it mainly because another meme I'd submitted never featured ('twas rather politically charged, and I think the mods didn't like it), and I wanted to see if another submission would feature. Glanced at my older stuff, saw this one, picked it because why not? Submitted it, it featured, the other one never did, my curiosity was satisfied. Then this one reached the front page.

So be pissed off, if you will. Your irritation will have no lasting effect on me; if you're that offended by my meme, by all means feel free to downvote it. Again, I had no ulterior motive when I submitted the above meme, nor did I ever care who people thought the author was. It was, in fact, my presumption that very few people would notice this meme or feel the need to upvote it. I was proved wrong in that notion. I'm glad some were able to derive enjoyment therefrom; I am sorry you did not, and that the only thing you can focus on is the perceived originality of the meme and intent of the user.

Ah gee man I'm sorry, I got about halfway through that and got bored. You are not bad at writing, in fact you are pretty good at it. The thing is I hear the same song and dance from every reposter.

Here, I will simply post the rule on reposting from the #1 meme site on the internet. It says everything that needs to be said...

Please avoid re-posting memes. We want original content. If you need to be told that remaking an exact meme still on the front page with a different picture is a repost, we regret to inform you of your mental retardation.

They don't even want the same joke on another pic, they don't want anything similar to what already exists. Their million plus subscribers and memes with thousands of upvotes is a result of them acting this way. This site will never get any bigger with people on it who think the way you do...
