|We all want to make beautiful websites full of graphics, lots of sophisticated text, and things that make people stop and say "that Website is very interesting and fun to look at". In fact, all artists are inspired by what they find around them. Being a copycat is okay. But when you use what you find, and it belongs to someone else, and you just take it without getting permission from the rightful owner, then you are just a COPYRAT. As you can see from the poem below by Jack Prelutsky, no matter how artistic you are, you're still considered a big fat copyrat. Once a rat, always a rat.|
Poem by Jack Prelutsky
|I met a rat of culture
who was elegantly dressed,
in a pair of velvet trousers
and a silver-buttoned vest,
he related ancient proverbs
and recited poetry,
he spoke a dozen languages,
eleven more than me.
|He had circled the equator,
he had visited the poles,
he extolled the art of sailing,
while he baked assorted rolls,
he wove a woolen carpet
and he shaped a porcelain pot,
then he sang a operetta
while he danced a slow gavotte.
|The rat was perspicacious,
and had cogent things to say
on bionics, economics,
hydroponics, and ballet,
he instructed me in sculpture,
he shed a light on keeping bees,
then he painted an acrylic
of an abstract view of cheese.
|He was versed in jet propulsion,
an authority on trains,
all botany and baseball
were contained within his brains,
he knew chemistry and physics,
he had taught himself to sew,
to my knowledge, there was nothing
that the rodent did not know.
||He was vastly more accomplished
then the billions of his kin,
he performed a brief sonata
on a tiny violin,
but he squealed and promptly vanished
at the entrance of my cat,
for despite his erudition
he was nothing but a rat.

THE COPYCAT'S TOUR
|Computer #1 says: What is the difference
between a copycat and copyrat?
Computer #2 says: Copycat's websites can be popular but Copyrat's websites have to stay underground.
I guess since Charlie isn't back yet I am running this page. I hate this!!!
No one will tell me what is next, so you have to find out yourself again!!!
