I'll get you, Jim Gaffigan

About two and a half years ago I wrote a blog about a funny idea I had for my stand-up comedy. I refused to mention what it was about lest one of you online freaks steal my idea.

Well, it happened. I squandered it and sat on it and did nothing with it and wouldn't you know it, someone else came up with the idea and put it on their last CD and did it well.

Granted, he didn't do it exactly how I had it in mind -- we both go in different directions -- but they start off similarly enough that people will probably now think I'm stealing from Jim Gaffigan. I'm not. And I didn't.

But doggonit anyhow. Oh well. That's what I get for hiding it under a bushel.

I hate when that happens.
I could've been a millionaire by now, I tell ya, if I had followed some of my ideas!!!!

Well,you'd seen that you are funny enough and smart enough to think up something so DO IT AGAIN!!!!

You should have just written it down anyways. Now-a-days, especially with a blog that has dates on it, anything can be proven. Whether people believed you or not that you came up with it first you would have proof of thinking of it first, and everyone who said it afterwards would be considered a thief... who should have their hand cut off.
