Breaking! First Gigi Impersonator Caught Red-Handed!

When I wrote the post about Gigi impersonators the other day, I had no idea that I was so close to actually catching one in the act. Perhaps I was receiving messages from the cosmos, which somehow compelled me to write the post or, rather, perhaps my post evoked some kind of self-fulfilling prophecy. Either way, some guy over at Bowl49ers must have truly liked my Best Bartender in NYC post so much, that he posted it as his own. Seriously. There were no links to me, no "props for Gigi who actually wrote this review," no changed names/details...No nothin'!

You have to see this to believe it. Go to my post, which I've highlighted above and then go to "his" post. It's uncanny how much they look alike. They're twins, damnit. Twins!

All I have to say is Bowl49ers better take a look at my list of Gigi-isms if he's going to keep engaging in such lowly antics.

P.S. If his story is down by the time you get there, this means the faker has taken it down in shame.

Thats just wrong..... How did you happen to stumble across it?

FYI: I'm the best bartender in Texas

and I can never remember my damn password for this site, so I had to create a third account just to comment. Are you really worth that much trouble?

Gigi said...

Cherokee - I've missed you! I'm glad you're back. If I lived in Texas I'd probably be writing about you, so there. I am worth it. Ha ha.

Cherokee said...

I've been reading...just haven't been posting. Probably because I can never remember the password.....

Post is still up....I left em a nasty comment.

Gigi said...

I love it, Amish.

Cherokee darling, eat some ginko biloba!

having the idea, then discovering a "biter" a few days later with no prior knowledge is very remarkable.

I believe in a communal pool of ideas, and this would seem to support that.

such a pool may create the need for us to re-examine our views on plagiarism.

not that this guy wouldn't be an ass regardless.

That's fucking weak. What the hell is that guy thinking?
