True Story

A science writer found out that his carefully crafted words had been cut and pasted directly into a trashy romance novel. The writer describes this experience in this hilarious account, and in the end he wants us to remember the real tragedy---the endangered meerkats. I couldn't help but also note the racist and sexist representations of American Indian men and 19th Century women in the culprit romance book. YUUUCCCK. Do people really read this crap?

So. Let's all do our part to teach kids not to plagiarize or stereotype. Yeh. Duh.
