Let me start off by saying this: I love CollegeHumor. Over the years they've made some seriously hilarious shit and I consider myself a fan.
Yesterday, however, CollegeHumor created a comic called "How to fire someone in Gotham city".
Anyone who is a fan of The Oatmeal might find the style and format in this comic to be very, very, veryfamiliar.
Now, I'm not one to criticize one person being inspired by another; I'm a firm believer that art cannot be born in a vacuum. I've been inspired
by many other artists and comedians and I often cruise around the web when I'm hoping to ignite a creative spark.
The "how to fire someone in Gotham city" comic, however bore such a resemblance to one of my comics that I received numerous emails saying primarily one of two things:
"Oatmeal, Did you get hired by collegehumor?!"
"Dude, your latest comic sucks harder than a black hole"
Rather than bitch and moan about it, I thought I'd make a comic about how I believe CollegeHumor gets inspired.
