Step 3: Draw upon your experiences

Picture of Draw upon your experiences
What have you done or would like to do?

What don't you like to do?

What have you been pushed into?

What are your hopes and fears?

No, this is not some psychological test.  Although, this is the best place for DIY analysis and get non-expert advice.

Formulate your attitude.

What kind of personality do you have?

Are you a skater, goth, k'nex'er, or weenie?

What stereotypes are you stereotypical of?

Is your noggin crammed full of useless trivia?

Do you watch too much TV, or play way too much video games?

This comic was already posted on the internet, before you posted yours. It can't be a coincidence that you create the same comic, with the same dialogue, the same characters and the scene a bit edited-with a doctor on a side. If you think I'm lying check out these links:

The image notes says it is a hacked comic.

The original was posted as part of some response to a forum topic somewhere. I took the image from that post and modified it with additional characters(Kiteman, Nachodog, ibles homepage on the display screen) apropos to Instructables.

It would take a while to find that topic but yes, the original author of the comic should be attributed with diligent research, but it was a one-off comment used in a personal reply.

But still the statement and the dog on the PC are the same, no matter what additional characters or scene you changed. As long as the meaning of the comic is the same, you copied. Sorry, but I didn't mean to offend you.

Exactly. Do you understand the comic connotations of Bizzaro world? Do you understand the meaning of poetic license? Do you understand the "Hmmm, what if...?"

I am in a way "Warholing" an someone else's work. I could have deleted the original artist's signature but I wanted to present my "overlay" or what I thought about the original comic as my interpretation, same for the Peanuts and XKCD comics.
Applied in context - as used in a reply to someone's comment, it was just to underscore the fun we have around here, not as a misrepresentation of a piece of art.

It is my point to say, find something funny, make you think, and can you make it more appropriate and make it funnier. Where do you find inspiration?

Aside from the DMCA implications, what's your point?
DCMA is exactly what I meant. Apart from that, I had no problem.

Apart from that, I had no problem. (see what I did there?)
