A reader tells me that an old post of mine called Tweet Your Breakfast is #2 on Reddit right now via Twitpic. The best part? I don't get any credit. Maybe my future comics will carry some sort of watermark. My 15 minutes of internet fame are almost over and I didn't even get to enjoy them, much less monetize them.

But I guess it serves me right since I "borrowed" the picture from Getty Images to begin with.

Here it is again.

  • Yes, but because you have friends, I mean a social network, you were alerted that your 15 minutes were happening. Without that, you might have missed it altogether. Incidentally, I'm sorry I forgot to tweet my breakfast today, but I hope to tweet its elimination.

  • That is, by far, my favourite comic of yours (but the others are great too!)

  • Dude that is a brilliant image. Yesbutnobutyes have it on their front page, with you cited as the original, so at least someone out there is giving you the credit you deserve :)

  • Oh, and, without said friends, you would not have had the genius idea to tweet or facebook your breakfast in the first place.

    You can thank me later.

  • Hey Jetpack, this Ormond Beach based blogger recognized you right away...

    And while the dufus with no name is pretty funny, I hope he learns to give credit where credit is due.

    But you get the funny AND the deep thinker award.

    And I am headed to Appliance Direct tomorrow!!!

    Keep up the great job...your 15 minutes are lasting a h*lluva lot longer than that.

  • You're nicking Getty pics? The mighty George Parker might want to whisper in your ear.
