Here's a link to the donation page. I'm very curious to see an update from him - he'll have to make some sort of announcement about the excess funds...

Just kicked in a sawbuck for shiats and giggles. I assume Obama will want to know where his sawbuck is.

dkendr: a sawbuck


WAT?
 
2012-06-12 07:10:44 AM
I've never heard of either site. Oatmeal seems cool, I'll check back. FunnyJunk is horribly done and made my eyes bleed.

Is that hillbilly or Welsh?

I've never heard of either site...but I have to say, I'll be checking the Oatmeal more...his rebuttal cracked me up.
 
2012-06-12 08:41:25 AM
TheOatmeal is a great site! I love the comics. Good on him for standing up for himself and posting a giant fark you to the douches at Funnyjunk.

Doesn't demanding a check to make it all go away kind of turn this in to a shakedown?
 
2012-06-12 09:03:12 AM
I want to know where they came up with the $20,000 figure for damages.
 
2012-06-12 09:03:13 AM
Been following this on FB. I was a bit shocked at how much the grand total was when I checked this morning. Hope he puts it all to good use.
 
2012-06-12 09:04:21 AM
OH! It's a court case. I thought that "The Jersey Shore" had added two new cast members.

I liked the Oatmeal before it was sued.
 
2012-06-12 09:07:57 AM
Is this where Drew can give his wisdom away? Or at least email Oatmeal with a link to the TED talk? It's like the same thing to legal process in that it's BS.

two fins.
 
2012-06-12 09:09:12 AM
Awesome.

I almost wish I was a lawyer so I could offer to defend him from that BS pro bono.
 
2012-06-12 09:09:40 AM
Does The Internet like Oatmeal/Inman now? Because last I checked in, he was a web developer who figured out he could use badly-drawn cartoons and social media pushes to game SEO's for ad revenues.
 
2012-06-12 09:09:52 AM
I'm going mail you the photo, along with this drawing of your mom seducing a Kodiak bear.

Awesome.

Donated. Good luck to his campaign.

A sawbuck is a $10 bill.

A fin is a $5

A buck is $1

I guess Hamiltons and Benjamins are self explanitory.
 
2012-06-12 09:10:20 AM
Never heard of The Oatmeal before.

So of course the first place I'm hotlinkd to has a ton of links to see his stuff at the place I'd assume he'd prefer me not to see it at.

(didn't click the funnkyjunk links)

/think if it was PennyArcade they'd collect money faster?

If you're going to draw the line at badly drawn internet comics what will we have left?

You forgot the double-sawbuck.

While that may be his shtick, his cartoons are original content that he himself creates - and while yes, some are already memes, it's still hilarious.

As long as he keeps providing me with free cartoons that are funny, I don't care. As long as he stops being funny or providing cartoons, he's forgotten.

I thought a sawbuck was a $100 bill, and a $10 bill was a dingo
 
2012-06-12 09:15:35 AM
All the comics he listed as stolen are now removed... I hope he documented some of those... might have been a bad move.

SJKebab: Here's a link to the donation page. I'm very curious to see an update from him - he'll have to make some sort of announcement about the excess funds...


What excess money? He's donating it 50 percent to one charity, 50 percent to another.

What excess funds? You do realise that this money is all for charity, right?

/sligthly worried.

$10 bill was a dingo
That's just silly...who ever saw a $10 bill eat a baby?
 
2012-06-12 09:17:23 AM
For those not acquainted with The Oatmeal he did a hilarious cartoon that ended up on CNN on SOPA day a few months back.

/how often would you see a koala bear humping a goat on CNN?

I read that he's reconsidering both the Wildlife Fund and the Cancer Society; instead, he's going to donate it all to George Zimmerman's legal defense. Wildlife and Cancer are the safe plays, the crowd pleasers, but he's really making a statement here. I like that and hope he raises a ton of money.
 
2012-06-12 09:20:20 AM
I hope when he does the money photo he'll build a money fort out of it.
 
2012-06-12 09:21:49 AM
Wait. So what happened now? Oh I see. Another thread begging for money.

The Fark headline is a little confusing. When I first read it it sounded like he was getting $20k in donations to pay the suit. RTFA and it became full of win.

Apparently the funnyjunk lawyer doesn't appear to be aware of this.

The GayRoller halfway down the page made me laugh.
 
2012-06-12 09:24:53 AM
Looks like he's now less than $200 shy of 100K. This turned epic pretty quick.

It's almost as if subby is a barely literate monkey and the person who posted the post at the beginning of this thread didn't actually read the article.

he should have just created a redirect rule that redirected any incoming request from FJ to something like tubgirl
