Heyyy maybe you’ve seen that first picture being posted all over facebook? I know I have! I also know that the jokes were originally by Ben Kling, as you can see by following this link! There are also more where they came from! Cute stuff.
Now jokes like “Be Mein” could be pretty coincidental but on the whole I don’t think so! I just wanted to direct you to the original artist, because hey, fight that good proper attribution fight. Facebook is a no mans land of nothing attributed to anyone ever.
Ben is my IRL friend and I hate the internet and I’m gonna smack all you fuckin’ joke-stealing jerks up OK? Also, you tasteless weirdo who re-purposed his jokes, I feel really sorry that you have 0 design sense and couldn’t see that his drawings were wayyyyyy cuter valentines than your crappy photoshops. AARRGHH
If you like Ben’s original cool cute valentines, you can purchase them here!! http://www.redbubble.com/people/benkling/collections/179130-dictator-valentines?product_type=greeting-card <—- yeah!!!
I’m one who made this egregious error, even after I totes remember seeing these wonderful illustration/valentines on the Tumblr. The best way to make up for it is to first publicly confront my wrongdoing, and then buy the fuck out of Ben Kling’s valentines (my valentine will have to guess which one I got ‘im).
It’s mostly the fault of the person who posted them on Reddit without sourcing at all. You’ve handled this bidness with grace and aplomb and I appreciate your acknowledging it!
LOOKS LIKE NEXT CHRISTMAS CAME EARLY THIS YEAR.
My Dictator, Portrait, and Drug valentines are all on sale now.
Listen, don’t screw this up for yourself. This is the perfect way to weed out the people in your life who don’t like the same things as you do, and that’s an entirely healthy way to conduct yourself.
Also, do myself a favor and share/reblog this. Even if you have no taste, your friends might, and they can use these to get rid of you.
Because people have requested a photoset, here’s all of last year’s Dictator Valentines*.
*Several not actually dictators.
This year, I’m rolling out some new Portrait Valentines, so check them out if you like these! (7 more are on their way tomorrow.)
Update: You can BUY THEM now, too.
