Are there any other Mefites with material on other websites?

I love brownpau to death, but this is just, you know, a solitary lolcat image. He's a smart guy, he does good work, but this feels kind of like linking someone's toenail clippings.

Cortex, I thought this was a bit of a big deal because I know the icanhascheezburger people get a TON of submissions. I wanted to celebrate the fact that one of our own made the cut.

No, that's why konolia made this post. If there were MeFites out there with stuff on different websites, this MeTa'd be pretty pointless, wouldn't it?

If you would ever get around to starting that promised Cortex's Toenail Clippings blog you promised, I would link it twice.

But probably not on MetaTalk.

Ah, thanks brownpau & TPS. Sorry, konolia. I get all my memes from MeFi, so someone says 'bucket', I think 'c...er, right. Think it's time to put the cork back in, so to speak.

LORECATZ!

Hey, I got a pic and link on the very-briefly-as-popular LOLBOTS site...

But while this kind of post is usually more appropriate to MetaChat, ICanHasCheezburger (for better, worse or LOL) has reached High Web Icon status making a MeFite sighting there almost as significant as one at NYTimes or WSJ.

Besides, MetaChat is busy right now doing LOLREPUGS posts that would just get deleted here.

You're not alone, there's a whole group of us hiding out in a bunker reading intellectual literature and attending piano recitals while eating matured french cheeses and sipping armagnac. Oh, and we have no TV. The sophistication is palpable.

When I was in the third grade I entered a county-wide coloring contest. I was REALLY geared up to win the first prize—it was a giant bucket of Swensen's bubble gum ice cream, which, if you were ever a kid, is like, the equivalent of winning the lottery, or best lolcat, the golden ticket, or something equally orgasmic.

I colored really, REALLY good...stayed in the lines and everything. I colored SO GOOD that I won the Grand Prize. I didn't even know there was a Grand Prize! So, thinking that I won possibly two or even THREE buckets of the precious bubble gums, I grabbed a bunch of spoons and waited for my salvation. There is really nothing like endlessly digging through ice cream for bubble gums, especially for an eight-year-old artistic genius.

Unfortunately, I got robbed. Instead of ice-cream-dreaminess, the "Prize" was that I had to be a guest member of the circus for an evening. They dressed me up like a clown, I had to hold some icky boy's hand all night, and we had to walk the perimeter of the circus, waving to kids and adults, all spectating, pointing, laughing, with ice cream dripping down their grubby hands. Oh, I so wanted to be with them.

I may have won that contest, but I never really felt like a winner. How I wished to be the first loser. Oh, how I wish...

The moral of my story is, Brownpau, I feel your pain. Other's have won the recognition that was rightfully yours. Life's not fair, and I learned the hard way too. I have never been able to eat bubble gum ice cream since then. And I'm scared of clowns.

Whoever submitted your photo is enjoying the benefits of your hard work. They were probably never a child. Maybe they don't even have a cat. Bastards. But just know that *I* understand what you must be going through right now. Somebody cares. Thanks MeFi, for giving me the means for telling my story. I've waited years.

It actually turned out that brownpau submitted brownpau's photo, iamkimiam. Not to undercut the poignancy of your childhood anecdote, because that shit is entirely fucked.

Let me get this straight - iamkimiam expected ice cream but instead was transformed into a clown? Dear God in heaven, it's like some hideously twisted Twilight Zone episode.

I'm amazed at the depths of evil that story reveals.

iamkimiam, I don't know you, but that was sad enough that if I did, I would buy you some ice cream and find you a clown. We could beat him up together.

Jesus tapdancing Christ. I give you pearls, and I get nothing. Do you realize that that is MORE than one image, cleverly captioned and based on an internet phenomenon? Plus, it is an original interpretation. For the same price as brownpau's, that's like... triple the value. Or whatever comes after triple. Fourple.
