Why the surprise? Plagiarism is the order (or should that be odour?) of the day. You should read the ads for writers sometime.
I guess they could consider it a compliment.
I consider it theft.
Subject: Re: Comment on SNL stole ‘ draw Mohammed’ sketch from Canadian TV
I actually think it is likely simply a matter of two groups coming up with the same idea. It’s a fairly easy joke about a subject that was in the news and when you watch both sketches in their entirety, there are enough differences to suspect they were thought of independently.
Do like the joke here though by Gavin.
they stole the sketch .. doesn’t matta’ .. hope it penetrates the ignorant audience they have.. but not in the way we relate to the matter ..they will have to lose their toys before they get the message ..
There is a difference. Canadians didn’t feel obliged to preface Muhammad with “The Prophet”.
The Canadian sketch is older ,If they redid it today they would likely add “The Prophet”.I don’t think the meme went out yet to the media
