Really? Isn't this just a plagiarism of thatroberts - "an exhaustive guide to cuts of meat"??

With how late it was submitted, I think that's fair to say.

For starters why have you not left comments on Prehistoric Meat Chart and diagram of a pig these are both also animal meat charts. Similar to An exhaustive guide to cuts of meat but different such as mine is. As for plagiarism look up the meaning its taking work that is not yours and using it for yourself unchanged. If you look at all the meat diagram submissions they are all different in various way. You can assume that they where influenced by the first one but might not have been. Either way as long as they are similar but different it is ok. A while back I did a post with Charlie brown likenesses shortly after it was posted 2 more showed up from that line of characters but I didn’t have an issue with it they where different. For the lateness of my submission 1. I work and have a social life so I’m busy with other things, 2 I have other submissions that I had worked on first and 3. I already an idea like this before the derby even started but was not sure about the text rule. After the first wave of rejects went through and other diagrams survived I said what the hell why not submit my version as well.

Meat charts are far from original, so I wouldn't use that as a basis for rejection, but there are already multiple unicorn meat chart shirts available. A search for 'unicorn meat shirt' will turn up all you can stomach.

Animal Meat Charts = boring/overdone.

However, not every animal meat chart uses such similar colors and style as yours and Roberts have. I find it nigh impossible to believe yours isn't highly "influenced" by his. So while "haha it's some SPOOKTACULAR! meat chart joke entry 5" might use the same tired concept, you're using the same tired concept without even using a different style to present it. That is why people are bothering to call you out and just sighing at the others. If you were to put this and the other side by side, the average viewer would presume they were done by the same identical person.

yeah these two entries are a little too similar... I looked at them side by side, and they just look like it's ONE artist presenting different versions of the same design. Down to the "1-leg look" of the forelegs...

Nooo, I think it's pretty much fact at this point, it's undeniably similar. Somebody should post a side-by-side image for the lazy, hehe

That's assuming anybody cares that much, which I doubt.

Similar Shirts Exist.

I do not buy the whole 'it's already Tuesday, so it won't print' excuse as to why things that are breaking rules are not rejected immediately.

Even though it's similar to the Exhaustive Guide, I like this design better. It's funnier.

Poor unicorn's got some jankety legs. No wonder he couldn't get away fast enough to avoid being meat.

ditto. I saw the cow design first and later found this design. I had assumed they were by the same artist b/c there are drastic similarities...you should've made a point of making your design more unique by at least using a different color scheme.

I voted for this shirt and not for An exhausted guide. The thought never occurred to me that the same artist had done both shirts simply from the names of the cuts of meat. While the other amused me a bit, it lacked much creativity. Definitely not a copy, haters hate on you because you saw a basic idea that was good and made it something better. Keep up the good work, I appreciate any and all nerdified shirts <3

Re: Nerds Guide to Unicorn Meat V2


Having seen this shirt before the other meat diagrams I voted for this one and not any of them. For good reason, this sh*t is f*cking rad! Any nerd that has ever enjoyed a real life role playing game such as D&D will get the humor here. The others just are not as funny, or as creative.

Even if this shirt was influenced by the other, every idea has been done before, sometime, somewhere. People get rich everyday by seeing an idea and saying I can do that better, then doing it. So what?

Haters gonna hate.
