• It began innocently enough. Matthew Inman, creator of The Oatmeal, took to his blog about FunnyJunk.com. Asking his readers what, if anything, he should do about them blatantly ripping off his comics.

  • Inman decided to send a cease and desist notice to FunnyJunk, in the futile hope that they might remove the 926 Oatmeal comics from their website. This was their response.

  • That email was sent out to every FunnyJunk user on the Internet. Soon Inman’s Facebook was swamped in barely legible scrawl…which he lampooned with great gusto.
