Hey, I didn't want to make a stink about it, but when my good name is on the line...
I'll grant you that maybe, just maybe, it's possible for two people to come up with the same idea with no input from each other. But if one of the people was to have 'salvaged' the idea from the other, I'd say the one who posted first was probably the originator of said idea.
So, which of these comics do you think came first? (Hint: Check the dates)
PS - In lieu of wirthling standing up for me, I shall scratch his name off the 'excruciatingly painful death by wombat' list and move him to the 'Monty Python Meaning of Life get run down by horde of mostly naked chicks wearing helmets and elbow pads death' list.
