Let me introduce you to everyone's new favorite Halloween toy. A combination of Frankenstein and Gumby. It's a futile creature doll modeled after the plagiarizing publisher David Boyer of Vincennes, IN.
The idea came to a toy manufacturer after reading how Boyer tried to stitch together past plagiarisms from real authors into a new, nauseatingly bad book. He calls it "Shadow Dolls." Why is ithis patchwork plagiarism so bad? One six year old expert think it's "the bad man" stitched them together like a blind seamstress suffering from palsey. I tend to agree. But whatever the cause of his ineptness the result is stomach pain bad.
Let's try to understand this new failure of the puerile plagiarist. Imagine if you will a plagiarist- a man with no creative skills of his own, and so low a character that he steals writings from teenagers and senior citizens alike- trying to blend a potpourri of plagiarism into a novel. The idea can barely be contained within the human skull.
Perhaps we can gain insight by reaching back into the world of fiction. In the novel Frankenstein, for example, Dr. Victor Frankenstein is brilliant but misguided in his attempts to create life. Unfortunately, it was his bad judgement to include a defective brain in his newly created creature. The results were dubious at best and should be intuitively obvious to the discerning student of human nature.
Likewise, when the pitiful plariazing publisher David Boyer of Vincennes, Indiana attempted to create a book that would be his own from multiple writer's work and not get caught, he started out with a brain issue.
Which is why, to this day, Gumby doesn't write. You see, if you write using the mind of Gumby, for sure you're going to get Pokied.
