DUmmie FUnnies 12-27-10 (Michael Moore quotes Proud Plagiarist Pitt!)
DUmmie FUnnies ^ | December 27, 2010 | William Rivers Pitt, DUmmies, and Charles Henrickson

Posted on 12/27/2010 4:34:04 PM PST by Charles Henrickson

Yesterday we looked at Pied Pied Pitt's, "All I Want for Christmas." But Pitt has BIG NEWS to report in regard to this latest essay of his! None other than MICHAEL MOORE himself has QUOTED from Pitt's article!! THE Michael Moore!!! OMG!!!! Can you BELIEVE it! But here it is, as Pitt reports in this THREAD, "Michael Moore quoted my Christmas article in his Christmas message." Our Boy Pitt must be walking on air! Sicko quotes Socko! Wee Willie has ARRIVED!!!

Only . . . there's one little problem. You see, the part where Michael Moore is quoting Pitt, well--how can I say this?--it turns out that Pitt there was, um, quoting from somebody else, another writer person, sorta, except without crediting--I mean, actually crediting--that other writer. A little bit. You know, that "plagiarism" thing. Except it wasn't really "plagiarism-plagiarism," you know, because, I mean, Pitt was doing it, and he's a progressive, and that must make it all right. I mean, if a RETHUGLICAN had done it, why, that would be different, of course. But this is PITT we're talking about, so. . . .

Well, anyway, the Pitt has hit the fan. Somebody went and noticed that Pitt lifted some lines from the late Douglas Adams, author of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." And so now, by "electricity," Pitt has made the great MICHAEL MOORE also guilty of plagiarism! Mikey has got the Willies, a Textually Transmitted Disease!

Oh, Will, when will you ever learn? But that's what makes you the continuing source of laughter you are! Wee Willie and the DUmmies are in Red-faced Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, waiting eagerly for franksolich to tell us who won the "Willie" and all the other DUmmie of the Year awards, is in the [brackets]:

Michael Moore quoted my Christmas article in his Christmas message.

[WHOA! THE Michael Moore?? Fahrenweight 451? Thicko? THAT Michael Moore? You're KIDDING me, Will!]

And yes, I'm freaking out.

[Unbe-freakin'-lieveable!!! You've DONE it, Will! You have ARRIVED! Quoted by THE Michael Moore!!]

A Merry Christmas to All
By Michael Moore
Hey Everyone,
I just wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas (or a Merry Everything) and hope you are all well today.
Here's a good thought from the writer William Rivers Pitt:
"Before Santa and presents and shopping and all the attendant Christmas (stuff) got involved, this holiday was enshrined to commemorate a guy who got nailed to a tree for daring to tell people to be kind to one another. If you have two cloaks, He said, give one away. Remember those who have less than you, be charitable, be good, be merciful."
Hear, hear.

[HERO, HERO! You're our HERO, William Rivers Pitt! Quoted by Michael Moore! And that wonderful, original thought of yours that he chooses to quote! "this holiday was enshrined to commemorate a guy who got nailed to a tree for daring to tell people to be kind to one another." Why, that is so POIGNANT, Will Pitt! And it is so YOU!! NO ONE ELSE could have ever come up with such a deep, profound sentence!]

Freaking. Out.

[Michael. Freaking. Moore. I. Am. So. Impressed.]

Good job, Will!

[Beth Ferrari, first out of the chute to congratulate Our Boy Will!]

VERY well done!

[CaliforniaPeggy joins in congratulating her dear Will.]

you famous guy, I knew ye when ye wasn't nothin'. Well actually I didn't but that's fun to say.

[The hangers-on start to arrive, sensing a celebrity in their midst and hoping that William will remember the little people when he's rubbing elbows with Michael Moore and Algore and Hef and Carrot Top at some swank soiree.]

Will Pitt's voice has always led the way!

[He's the Pied Piper, fo' sho'!]

When I hear it, I always prepare to raise a glass or raise a fist!

[Pitt's voice is so gravelly from the cigarettes, when I hear it, I want to raise a grapefruit and shove it in his mouth.]

woot!

[wootie-tootie, pitt-patootie!]

Well, that was a fine fanatabulous quote Michael used. He's a smart guy to do that. Y'know?

[Yes, and that quote was SO WILL, you know what I mean?]

Mister Douglass Adams Would like to have a word with you for plagiarizing his word, if he wasn't dead. For shame, Mister Pitt. For shame.

[Wha, WHA-AA??? Are you saying that Mr. Pitt LIFTED those lines from another writer? A dead other writer? Why, why, that would be . . . P-p-pla . . . Well, you know, the "P" word!]

The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy. exactly!

[Pitt's new book will be called "The Hack Writer's Guide to Prolixity."]

The Adams quote IS similar... but google A guy nailed to a tree, guy got nailed to a tree, and a few others and look at the number of hits...enough variety there that I give Will the benefit of the doubt and congratulate you for thrilling their little hearts over at the conservative cave (I refuse to publish links for sites like that) where they are quoting you and bashing Will...

[I find the most ironic part of this whole thing is that Pitt plagiarizes a quote from Douglas Adams, a self-described RADICAL ATHEIST, who didn't believe in Christ and who reduces Christ to some sort of a socialist martyr, in a piece about Christmas!! . . . Well, now Pitt responds to the person who exposed his plagiarism . . .]

Good eye. "Good writers borrow from other writers. Great writers steal from them outright." - Sam Seborn. I ain't great, but I definitely nabbed the line.

[Pitt ADMITS the plagiarism--and then casually DISMISSES it!]

How do you feel about the game tomorrow? The Bills always make me nervous.

[Pitt quickly changes the subject to football.]

Congrats Mr Pitt! Taking a sip from the river of intelligent thought is never the same place twice. Or something like that.

[William Rivers-sipping Pitt.]

We bask in the reflected glow or your countenance.

[It's blinding!]

You are the most famous DUer that we know of.

[The Legend of Will grows.]

Thank you, everyone.

[No, thank YOU, Mr. Pitt! THANK you!]

We'll call you Mr. Quotable from here on out.

[How about Mr. Plagiarist?]

You're more famous than you can imagine, dude.

[DUde!]

Practically every liberal friend I have knows your name.

[Liberal friend: "Pitt? Isn't he the guy who blew the Rove indictment scoop? Yeah, I've heard of him! What a maroon!"]

Possibly the best thing you've ever written, Will.

[Possibly because you didn't write it.]

I STILL YOU NEED TO TEACH CREATIVE WRITING FOR COLLEGE 101...... money for you and your family Teaching HELPS THE TEACHER.... believe me. Not that 'creative' means falsehoods ..... but what a writer does and how they develop it into cognitive , intelligent opinion, statement or argument. Believe it or not.... I'm recognized internationally. I really don't think seeking accolades is necessary with me, sense you called me meaningless and not worth anyone's discussion. Careful with words.... they have given me more power than any Bar Job, Wrestling, Boxing or physical abuse The Wing Chun of Bruce Lee, goes deeper than you realize at your age.

[DUmmie Ichingcarpenter has been hitting the schnapps again.]

you are a better writer than Michael is

[Damning with faint prose.]

How are you as a public speaker, btw?

[Like sandpaper through the hourglass, so is the glaze of our eyes.]

And honest writers don't wait for their plagiarism to be exposed before admitting it.

Moore is richer than most and can at least hobnob with the Hollywood elite and the DC cocktail party circuit but he hangs out at DUmmieland? I guess it's true that money cant buy happiness.

Isn't about time for Pitt to threaten to leave again, just so he can get his ego stoked by those who plead with him to stay?

I can see neither Moore nor Pitt have actually READ The Bible.

They skimmed over the "Thou shalt not steal" part.

Well, PJ's gotten into the topic as well. I sent him a post linking to this.

Obviously Moore reads DU. I wonder whether he'll pick up on his use of a plagiarism? Nah, I don't care one way or the other. Moore, Pitt, the DU idiots, they're all worthless drek...

Pitt quoted me once and I was worried that I might have to change my phone number. It was something I posted about not judging an entire message board or forum by a few trolls and he didn’t get it. To him the broad brush rules.

It's the same typical nonsense you ask anyone who doesn't know anything about Christ:

"What did Christ teach?"

"Love!"

OK...

I love how, in the first picture, the starship “Enterprise” is zapping P.Pitt’s head!
Maybe that is what’s making his hair grow, Charles.
