Four years ago I posted this photo of Chuck with a pile of freshly cooked pasta on his head. You have probably seen this photo on facebook or Instagram or on some website that likes to write captions on photos of animals. In fact, a local pub used this photo without my permission to promote a Thanksgiving Day party.
Yeah. Whatever. Is it copyrighted? Sure. Would I like attribution? Of course. Is that a reasonable expectation? Probably not. That photo has taken on a life of it’s own, and if it makes someone chuckle then, hell. My work here is done. In fact, I took this one this morning just in case you’re having a bad day and needed a picture of a dog drowning in noodles. This is for you.
